About the Workshop
Whether you're a designer, writer, product owner or manager, this workshop will teach you the basics of running a usability test to find out whether your product (or concept) meets the needs of the people you're designing for.
- Plan a usability test, from figuring out what tasks to give your participants to deciding whether to do the test in person or remotely
- Recruit participants, which is often the hardest part
- Moderate a test session, so you'll feel comfortable enough to do this on your own
- Analyze the results, including techniques for how to gather feedback from anyone else who observed the test
- Present your findings in a way that makes it more likely your recommendations will actually be implemented

About Our Host Sponsor
The College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) serves as a central hub for multi-disciplinary computing and informatics activities by uniting the faculty, staff nd students from the iSchool, College of Information Science and Technology; the Department of Computer Science formerly housed within the College of Engineering; and the Department of Computing and Security Technology formerly housed in the Goodwin College of Professional Studies.
CCI also addresses a national demand for graduates in computing and data science. The College enrolled more than 2,200 students in its inaugural year. More than half of the students are undergraduates, with the number of undergraduates projected to grow by 15 percent annually to meet the persistent gap between computing degrees granted and the number of jobs in the field.
