Introduction to User Testing

Monday, July 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm • Organized By Betamore
101 W. Dickman St., Baltimore, MD 21230

About

Do you want to test your landing page designs before implementation? Do you want to see if users can find what they need using the new search feature that you built? Are you wanting to ensure that patients can find emergency room information on the homepage?

If you want to know if site visitors really get what they want from your website, this workshop is for you.

In this workshop, you’ll learn three user testing methods to validate content, design and technical features of a site: menu testing, first-click testing, and in person usability testing. Each method will help you quickly establish a baseline for how your site is performing. You’ll also learn how to prioritize your findings and communicate key insights to your design and development team so that you can deliver a better experience to your site visitors. Sign up today to add these must-have techniques to your UX wheelhouse.

This is a 2-day workshop, Monday + Wednesday, 6pm-9pm.
