These Kids Today: Usability Testing with Current and Prospective Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kids don't read. Kids don't scroll. Kids only look at pictures. Kids ignore pictures. Want to know how kids really use your website? There's one sure way to find out: watch some kids use your website. This session will focus on how to conduct usability tests and why you should. We'll walk through the process from beginning to end, look at the time and technologies needed, and discuss what to do with the results. We’ll look at video clips from usability sessions, and create a sample script for conducting your own tests. And we'll finish with some specific findings from some usability sessions conducted at the University of Rochester this year with current students and high school students. Experience Level: Beginner - Assumes no prior knowledge of topic. Prerequisite Knowledge:
Must have some experience with either designing and creating websites or website content development. Skills/Knowledge Gained: Attendees will learn what usability testing entails and how to do simple usability tests on their own sites with the audiences they care most about.
