New e-learning Course: “Introduction to Website Usability”

Registration is now open for a new ACRL e-learning course, “Introduction to Website Usability.” The course will be offered January 28 – February 16, 2008.

For very little investment in staff hours and training you can reap tremendous benefits by connecting with the users of your library website and web based applications through usability testing. This three-week course is designed for the librarian or library IT staff person who is interested in setting up a usability program but doesn’t know where to begin.

“Introduction to Website Usability” is a primarily asynchronous seminar, allowing participants to work through course material at times convenient to them throughout the week. A threaded discussion topic will be scheduled for each week of the course. Specific material and activities are expected to be covered during each week of the course. The course will be offered in the Moodle platform.
