2 day, 9:00am – 4:30pm full day sessions with a one-hour lunch break.
The first day will be focused on the fundamentals of usability testing, the second day will have mainly hands-on exercises to increase your skills in doing actual usability testing.
We assume little awareness of the user experience & usability field. Our courses are appropriate for anyone working in the creation of digital products and want to learn about the process, tools and techniques to create successful user experiences. The courses are not focussed on how to use specific software applications like Photoshop or Axure.
