    • General purpose: to give insight to optimise communication
    • Examples of work (in the following slides):
    • Concept testing of a website prototype
    • Usability testing of a website
    • Card sorting
    • Other services include:
    • Usability inspections and reviews.
    • Remote usability testing.
    • Cultural probes, personas, scenarios, diary studies, focus groups, user workshops and field studies.
    • Usability classes and seminars.
    • Hosting of usability research in our usability labs in Copenhagen.
  • 6. Example One: Concept testing of a website prototype
    • Purpose:
    • To improve the website concept through discussing:
    • Will users from the target group use the website prototype?
    • Do they understand and accept the concept?
    • Preferred methodology:
    • Group workshops. Six to ten respondents in a group will talk about their preferences and past experiences in a usability lab. A moderator will conduct interviews and present prototypes or websites related to the prototype. Each workshop session does not exceed three hours and is video recorded.
  • 7. Example Two: Usability testing of a website
    • Purpose:
    • To improve the website visual and functional design through observing:
    • Can users use the website?
    • Are they able to solve their tasks – is it easy, fast, efficient?
    • Do they experience a coherent, appealing website, aligned with other general and campaign specific marketing?
    • Preferred metodology:
    • One-on-one usability testing . One respondent at a time will solve tasks on the website in a usability lab, thinking aloud about his experience as he goes along. A moderator will conduct pre- and post-test interviews and listen in. Each testing session does not exceed two hours and is video recorded.
  • 8. Example Three: Card sorting
    • Purpose:
    • to improve the website information architecture through better understanding of logical content groupings, nomenclature, etc
    • Preferred metodology:
    • Card sorting in small groups. Two or three respondents at a time will sort paper cards that have been labeled with the names of significant documents or products from the website in a usability lab, discussing how the cards are grouped and how groups of cards should be named. A moderator will conduct pre- and post-test interviews and listen in on the discussions. Each sorting session does not exceed two and a half hours and is video recorded.
