Lee Duddell, Founder & UX Director of What Users Do was kind enough to take the stage at our second Northern User Experience (NUX) – Newcastle event and provide top tips on getting started with Remote Usability Testing.
Lee walked us through 10 top tips from getting started, planning a test, and analysing the results whilst providing insight from real test videos.
Top 10 tips
- Test competitor websites or different sectors to find out what works and why
- When constructing a regular testing panel,watch out for testers becoming too comfortable & critiquing instead of using it naturally. We want to observe behaviour when completing a task, not listen to opinions.
- You are not geographically restricted when it comes to finding participants so can test around the world to see if their are cultural differences.
