I’ve recently had a few support clinic attendees asking for a whistle-stop tour of usability testing, so this post shares the resources and recommendations I’ve been giving out.
Join us for another open invite usability testing review workshop, which is showcasing our work with IS Helpline to enhance the online student experience. You’ll see how we’ve improved the website support experience based on our last round of testing, and learn how to run the process for yourself.
We are embarking on a collaborative initiative with IS Helpline to improve the quality of online IT support for students. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the impact of continuous review and improvement processes on the student digital experience.
With 9 projects, 43 participants and 11 hours of video footage, it has been a hectic 10 weeks working as Usability Testing Assistant for the pilot service. I’ve had a great time and look forward to more when we continue our work from September.
Over the past couple of months Vanessa and I have been supporting the development of a new web app for students. The Web, Graphics & Interaction Team invited us to get involved and help them make their new service as quick and user-friendly to use as possible. The collaboration has been a great success.
The recently launched Media Hopper service for University staff and students provides an excellent (and free) means to record usability testing sessions. We recommend you try it as a means to easily share your findings with colleagues and stakeholders.
Our final Usability Testing Service showcase session of the summer (30 June) focused on the prospective postgraduate experience using the Degree Finder and associated websites.
We contributed two workshops to this year’s IWMW conference, sharing our knowledge and experience with web managers from universities across the UK.
I joined the team as Usability Testing Service Assistant in late May and have had a busy first month getting to grips with the equipment we use, helping run promotional events and supporting a range of projects.
In our latest showcase of the Usability Testing Service (held 15 June), we worked with our frontline IT support colleagues to learn where their website self help pages could be better.
