Beyond Usability Testing: Other Research Methods
Instructor: Sonali Mishra
Dates: September 1-28, 2013
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
This four-week, asynchronous online course will cover a selection of user research methods, including user interviews, surveys, observational studies, and A/B testing, that can be used to answer different questions from usability testing. In this course, you will learn how to design each type of study, what kinds of questions it can answer, and what its strengths and limitations are. You will learn about good practices when interviewing, things to watch out for when creating surveys, and how to set up observational studies and A/B tests. As a class, we will discuss how to act on your findings.
This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in User Experience (UX), but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
