UIEtips: Conducting Usability Research for Mobile

Jared Spool

October 8th, 2014

In this week’s UIEtips, we reprint an article. In it, I speak with Cyd Harrell on conducting user research on mobile devices. I also make the case that mobile can be used as a research tool for things other than just the phone itself.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Jared: It feels almost like the lab is not necessarily the first choice for doing the research in a lot of these projects. Doing them in context is not that much more difficult. We should be strongly considering that as we’re doing the studies.

Cyd: I think we should. I strongly encourage people to do it. Again, live broadcast is a complexity, but if you’re not doing live broadcast, you have a lot of ways that you can be with someone.
