Description

Introduction

You want to design your digital product based on usability principles and you are not sure where to start?

You have already launched a product or a service and you want to identify and fix the most important design problems?

There are several UX methods to effectively address these kinds of challenges with or without users (i.e. running a usability test with users vs usability inspection methods). Heuristic evaluation and UX expert reviews are considered highly effective and efficient methods that UX designers and researchers use around the world.

These methods are very popular due to many reasons:

  • They help researchers and designers to easily identify the design weaknesses of existing products.
  • The learning curve is relatively low
  • They help designers to focus on usability principles early in the design process.
  • They can be used together with other usability testing methodologies.
  • They provide quick and relatively inexpensive feedback to product design teams. - Reporting is easy and can be both qualitative and quantitative
  • They can be applied at any stage in the digital product design process.

Dr. Panagiotis Zaharias offers a workshop where the above methods will be thoroughly presented, discussed and practiced with real products and services through team work and collaborative exercises.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to apply basic usability principles and heuristics during the design process (along with real world examples).
  • How to identify usability problems in any kind of digital product (either a single early prototype or a finalized system).
  • How to conduct a heuristic evaluation and report the findings to the product design team.
  • How to choose your own set of heuristics and conduct your own UX expert reviews.

Who will benefit

  • UX designers / UX researchers / Product designers / Front-end designers
  • Software developers
  • Product and project managers
  • Business owners/ Startup founders / entrepreneurs
  • Digital Creative directors
