Two free workshops on Remote Usability in Lisbon in May

April 13th, 2011 by James

Last year we gave a workshop at UxLx, which was a huge success. This year we have opened an office in Lisbon. By coincidence we will be training staff at the same time in remote usability methods, so we have decided to open our doors to anybody who is intersted and around.

The two workshops coincide with this years UxLx conference and will be held in the afternoon of the 11th and 12th of May. Places are limited and they will fill up quickly, as the cost of our workshops is normally between 400 to 700 Euro. If you don’t want to miss out on this great offer, book your place now.

The workshops

Remote Usability is a collection of methods that over the last year has become increasingly popular. Most of us are designing and developing products that will be used anywhere in the world, but most of our research methods are tied to a physical location. Remote sets the researcher free from being tied to a place, and also enables the testing of more people.

By the end of the session you will become familiar with a number of remote research technologies, from remote ethnography to synchronous and asynchronous tools, and will be able to explain when such tools are suitable for user research. We also will cover the basics of asynchronous testing, which is significantly different from the usual user research methods. The workshop will demystify the basic statistics that will help you understand the results. You will also learn the basics about how to carry out international studies, from the legal issues to how to deal with translation.

The workshop will cover:

- The different methods
- Remote ethnography
- Surveys
- Synchronous remote research
- Asynchronous remote research
- Study design
- Recruitment Methods
- Basic Analysis
- International Studies
- Legal

The purpose of both workshops is to enable you to turn data and observations from Remote Testing into valuable insights upon which you can act.
