For the 2014 Digital Humanities Summer School at the University of Oxford DHOxSS. Usability doesn’t have to be a drag, and user testing doesn’t have to take months and a cast of thousands. Following the principle that ‘any user testing is better than no user testing’, lightweight usability is based on the idea that all you need to run useful tests with real people is a bit of planning and a couple of hours. In this session you will learn how to plan and run a lightweight usability test on paper prototypes or early versions of digital projects and get tips for recruiting and rewarding participants for 'guerrilla usability testing'. At the end of the workshop we will put it into practice by running a live usability test on a site suggested by the audience.
