The next iteration of our monthly Learn usability testing showcase is taking place at the James Clerk Maxwell Building on Thursday 25 April.
Our monthly cycle of usability testing in Learn continues. Come along to our next event, where we’ll watch students using a Learn environment set up by the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences.
Our cycle of usability testing showcases continues on Friday 1 March at 9.30am. Participants will have the opportunity to watch students using a Learn course, before collaboratively prioritising the main usability issues observed.
Following a successful usability showcase of the Vet School’s Learn environment, our next event will take place on Monday 28 January at 1.30pm.
As part of our collaboration with IS Helpline, we worked to improve the web content on getting your first student card – and saw the support calls on this topic nearly halved.
Find out how to uncover what’s working and not working for your students using your Learn course environments at this usability testing showcase event, taking place on Wednesday 28 November at 9.30am.
Our User Experience training continues to be very popular and well reviewed by the University staff attending. At the recent sessions, I asked a few of the group what they thought and have pulled the comments together into a short video.
The Website and Communications team has recently been heavily involved in a pilot project to improve the journey of prospective online learning students, from investigation to offer.
I recently ran a one-day workshop for IS web editors focused on teaching them how to iteratively improve their digital content so users are able to self-serve on their site. The event was a great success, with attendees leaving with an appreciation for what it takes to create user-focused content.
It’s just over a year since we trialled our first user experience training package. We’ve run the sessions 4 times now, receiving excellent feedback from attendees and refining the provision each time to better meet staff needs.
