This 2-day class explores tools and techniques used to transform UCD testing results into real improvements on websites.
Whether short and impromptu or more formal and in-depth, usability testing yields data. The goal of user-centered design is to, when feasible, let that data drive design and functionality changes. After organizing and evaluating test results, it’s time to share conclusions and suggestions with those who design and develop our web pages and online applications.
In this class, participants will gain a solid understanding of the preferred LNI design workflow. They will explore the use of wireframes, site maps, flow charts, and other design diagrams to establish a common language so designers and project teams can capture ideas, track progress, and keep their all interested parties informed.
