Fundamental Guidelines for Web Usability

A session at Usability Week New York 2011

  • Jakob Nielsen

Thursday 10th February, 2011

9:00am to 5:00pm (EST)

Which of the 1,549 documented Web usability guidelines are most important? This tutorial focuses on the key insights into people’s website behavior and on the resulting top guidelines for making your website easier and more enjoyable to use.

Understanding these general principles will help you think through design problems, analyze usability challenges specific to your own project, and make the correct trade-offs when you have conflicting considerations.

This course distills the findings from our testing of 831 websites with 2,744 users in 16 countries across four continents, including usability tests, field studies, and eyetracking research.
