Guerrilla Usability: Implementing user experience testing with little (no) budget

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

  • Jonathan Davis

Monday 8th October, 2012

8:30am to 9:15am (CST)

User-centered design can be the catch 22 for higher education. How can you show a result without an investment? How can you get investment without proven results? Before we receive additional resources from administrators, we have to prove concepts on the cheap first. At Illinois State University our official Usability Department consists of 1/2 of a person but, unofficially, we've tapped faculty members, students and other staff to expand our capabilities and form mutually beneficial relationships at little to no cost. In this session, we'll discuss how to do without the resources you won’t get easily (money) by utilizing those that are unique to a University: extra-credit hungry students, faculty looking for learning experiences and graduate assistants looking for hands-on research work. With one test at a time, you can win over more supporters, gain more resources and, finally, build something that resembles a usability program.
