March 24th Free Online Tutorial: Advanced Usability Techniques for the Seasoned Pro

Usability research is pretty straight forward. Find some users, put them in front of a design, have them execute a task or two, take some notes, write a report, and call it a night, right? Not quite. There are many advanced techniques which, when implemented effectively, can drastically improve the success of your research.

On March 24th, I will be presenting a free online tutorial to share these techniques with you: Advanced Usability Techniques for the Seasoned Pro. We’ve limited the online tutorial to 50 seats to guarantee I have time to address your questions.

Tutorial Description

Do you want to measure the effectiveness of your content pages? How do you ensure your links are meaningful to users? Do users see the value of your products and services? When trying to answer these kinds of questions, some techniques work better than others. In this webinar, Christine Perfetti will show you some unique methods you’ve probably never heard of — techniques only practiced by the most adventurous design teams. Among the techniques you’ll learn about:

  • 5-Second Tests: A popular low-tech technique to collect quick feedback on whether a screen or page’s purposeĀ  is clear to users. You may have heard of this technique, but 90% of design teams are using it wrong
  • Inherent Value Tests: A two-phase test that explores the value that loyal customers find in a product or service
  • Category Agreement Analysis: an alternative to traditional card sorting
  • Catalog-based Testing: The perfect technique for migrating offline content to the web
