Modern Usability Tools & Techniques – Dec. 7

Usability testing doesn’t require a lab with 2-way mirrors and a $50K budget. Get experience with modern usability tools and techniques in our free coworking and brownbag workshop on Fri., Dec. 7.

Modern Usability Tools & Techniques

When you hear “usability test” do you think of a lab with several cameras and one-way mirrors? Usability activities can be done anywhere, anytime, and your interfaces will be much, much better for having that key user input. Today’s usability methods take advantage of web cameras, smart phones, tablets, and remote collaboration technology.

Firecat CEO & Chief Digital Strategist Susan Price will demo several tools and techniques we’ve used on Firecat projects. You’ll participate in a couple of usability studies during the session, while enjoying a light lunch and networking with interesting, intelligent, hardworking peers.
