"Adapting Usability Investigations for Agile UCD" published

Several people were asking about resources/case studies/help
to do agile user-centred design. The Journal of Usability
Studies has just published an article I wrote that describes
in detail the adaptations to usability investigations (such
as rapid formative usability testing and contextual inquiry)
that the Autodesk (was Alias) UX team made in order to
support UCD:

I hope there is some helpful material in it.

Usability as Feature

I'm branching from an earlier topic in which this statement was made:

"Maybe you can re-frame your usability improvements as features?"

I've thought about this several times in recent months while reading
this list.

Usability testing software for Mac?

Hi everyone,

My company's working on a new Mac product that we will be doing usability
testing on. We use Morae for our Windows products and like the features it
provides.

We're looking to find something comparable for testing Mac software. We are
doing testing on-site, so remote testing software is not necessary.
However, we would like reliable screen capture. Remote observer capability
and real-time marking/flagging would also be nice to haves. For those who
have experience with testing Mac software, would you be able to share your
experiences and process?

Anyone succeeded in getting a usability-only release?

Have any of you ever succeeded in getting a software release dedicated solely to usability fixes? I guess I'm primarily addressing in-house specialists... presumably consultants are often engaged to address solely usability.

Thanks, www.jackbellis.com

Testing usability of mobile applications

Hi,

I'm planning on usability-testing a S40 application, and would like
to hear about the ways you tend to test usability of mobile
applications. Paper prototype is always an option, however, is that
all you do, or do you test with real devices? If so, do you capture
the input some ways, possibly with a software or a camera, or do you
just watch the user use his mobile?

Regards,

LePo

Usability and meaningfulness of our mailing list

Hi all,

I was wondering what others thought about our mailing list, is it not hard
to read and scroll through posts? On the one hand, I could conform to the
current standards of the format (which humans are very good at,
thankfully?), but isn't design about making things easier to use, and in
terms of present trends, full of beauty and goodness?

>From a young designer to experienced designers,

Nick Hausman
