Do-It-Yourself Usability Testing

Instructor: Rebecca Blakiston
Dates: April 4-29, 2016
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

In this 4-week course, you will learn how to conduct effective usability
tests in order to improve your website. You will walk through the process
of defining primary tasks and translating them into scenarios, making a
plan, recruiting participants, and conducting the actual tests. You will
learn how to analyze the results to make decisions about your website’s
information architecture, labeling, and content. You will also strategize
about how to implement affordable methods of usability testing in a
systematic and sustainable way.

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.

Rebecca Blakiston is a User Experience Librarian and the Website Product

and content strategy. She has published and presented nationally on topics
