It grew up with production equipment, consumer products and software, adapted to the internet, and is now conducted in person and remotely. This tutorial provides attendees with a hands-on understanding of the usability testing methodology. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on experience, attendees will be guided in designing, conducting, and analyzing a web site usability test.
Usability Roadblocks to Self-Service Success: How to Identify and Remove Them.

This workshop reveals areas of excellence and opportunities for improvement, and focuses on what is critical for the design and improvement of easy-to-use websites.
