Usability testing training

The essential method to gain user insight

Usability testing is a key technique to make sure your websites, apps, prototypes etc. are in line with users' needs and goals. Usability testing is also a great way to get to know your users and communicate customer requirements to stakeholders in an engaging way.

During this interactive one-day course you'll master the basics for running usability testing sessions, in the way that we do here at Webcredible day-in-day-out. We cover what we look to find out during usability testing, as well as teaching you all the basic logistics, including:

  • Setting usability testing research objectives
  • Participant recruitment
  • Usability testing interview script writing
  • Usability testing lab setup

The core part of the training is then dedicated to giving you a hands-on chance to practice your interviewing and reporting skills. You'll run a mini usability testing session, guided by our experienced user experience consultants, getting the chance to master:

  • Your usability testing interview techniques
  • The art of taking useful notes
  • Ways to analyse, extract and report usability issues
  • How to share wider user research insights and findings

Our usability testing trainers are full-time UX consultants at Webcredible - when not training, we work on live UX projects for our clients. Between us, we've run 10,000+ hours' research, and deliver amazing user experiences day in, day out. You'll get to tap into the expertise and experience of true UX professionals.

It was a great course and felt that I came away with ideas to take back to my team

Is this the right course for you?

This course is particularly suitable if you are:

  • Looking to plan and run usability testing studies, either directly or about to commission others to do it
  • Working as a product manager, digital marketing professional or website owner and you want to do usability testing as part of a more user-centred approach to digital design
  • Looking to understand user behaviour and how your users interact with your digital products

Meet Richard Johnston, one of your trainers

Since 2009 Richard's been conducting user experience research, strategy and design for leading brands across the UK and internationally. He's Webcredible's main proponent for lean UX and has spent the past few years as a Senior Experience Consultant embedding lean methodologies into our UX processes.

Most of Richard's days are spent helping our clients understand their customers' requirements and then designing digital experiences based around their needs. In keeping with the lean UX spirit, he can often be found carrying out guerrilla research or locking himself in a war room with a team to rapidly sketch out innovative solutions.

Richard is a really passionate trainer and is well aware that less is more... he's careful to avoid information-overload, focusing on making sure you learn the practical skills to apply UX practices in your day job.
