Designing Usability Tests to Solve Common Problems

Throughout 2017, the University of London and Numiko worked together to completely overhaul the intuition’s online presence. We brought two sites together into one, unified site that serves students in 180 countries worldwide. With different modes of study, as well as 18 UK institutions to consider, the UX challenges involved were considerable.

This session will walk participants through the principles of good usability test design, and we’ll also look at some of the tools available.

Participants will be challenged to design a test(s) around a specific, given usability topic and we’ll share  our thoughts on what worked and what didn’t in our own project.
