NH UPA June 2012: My iPhone or Yours? Usability Testing on Mobile Devices
Wednesday, June 20, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
My iPhone or Yours? Usability Testing on Mobile Devices
Join NH UPA for an evening with Lis Pardi, usability researcher and user interface analyst at EBSCO Publishing, and Kate Lawrence, senior usability researcher at EBSCO Publishing.
We design for mobile, but how do we test to make sure we're creating the right mobile experiences? After several months of trial and error two researchers are ready to share what they've learned so you can skip to the fun part — testing mobile websites and apps. Through their work on mobile sites they have tested paper prototypes, prototypes on devices, and competitor sites in informal hallway testing and formal lab testing using mobile phones and tablets.
Participants in this session will:
- Learn how mobile recruiting is different from non-mobile recruiting
- Observe the possible pitfalls of prototype testing on a phone
- See the equipment combinations the researchers went through to get to their current testing set-up
- Find out the best places for mobile testing
- Get an overview of mobile usability testing theory and which of those theories are actually used in practice
- Leave with a plan to evolve standard research techniques to suit today's wireless life
