Course Overview
Hey everyone. Thanks for joining me on my new Pluralsight course. My name's Joe DeVito and my course is Usability Testing Approaches for UX Design. I'm the digital practice lead at a company called UDIG, which means I manage all things digital, development, design, user experience, and strategy. I obtained my certified usability analyst certification three years ago with my previous company and I believe that usability and user experience is something that any company or product can benefit from. User experience is something anyone can learn and understand 'cause for the most part, everybody has had a user experience with a product or website. In this course, we're going to cover usability testing and analysis. Some of the main things that we'll cover are the objectives of usability testing, different types of usability tests and how to conduct them. We're going to go over collecting usability data and then finally, we'll go over using that data you've collected to make informed recommendations to your client's stakeholders or peers. By the end of this course, you'll know how to conduct many types of usability tests and how to collect all your findings into a compact report to deliver to your stakeholders. Because this course is an intro course user experience, everybody already has the tools they need to be able to take this course. So, I'm looking forward to seeing you in module one of the usability testing approaches for UX Design course on Pluralsight. com.
