Introduction to Website Usability
Format: ACRL Online Seminar
Dates: October 6-24, 2008
Presenter: Nora Dimmock
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. Through a combination of reading assignments, online discussions, and hands-on activities, students will:
Deepen their understanding of the value of usability testing when developing new web-based systems and services for their library.
Develop a test protocol that meets their institutions requirements for research studies involving human subjects testing.
Devise a strategy for recruiting test subjects from different user groups.
Learn the most commonly used types of tests and where they fit into the iterative design cycle.
