Course Description

Course Prerequisite: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENC 3211 or ENC 3241. (To enroll in this course, you must have previously taken either ENC 3211 or ENC 3241. Failure to meet the prerequisites for a course can result in failing the course).  This course will cover usability theory and techniques for evaluating manuals, online documentation, and other technical communication genres. 

Course Overview

This is a project-based course involving collaboration designed to provide you with the knowledge and practical experience of usability testing.

Course objectives include:

  • Providing students with a basic overview of usability practices and procedures

  • Building familiarity with conducting and testing usability outside a formal lab setting

  • Building team skills and collaboration tools

  • Discussing and analyzing modern usability practices as well as design features of various technical communication genres

In this course, you will learn usability testing principles and strategies for planning and conducting a test outside the confines of a traditional usability lab. Because this course is fully online, we will extend this to conducting many of the activities online as well. Once the basics are established through meetings and discussion, you will focus your efforts on working with your team to plan, prepare, and conduct a usability test on a procedure/interface of your choice, then analyze and present the results in a written report, oral presentation, and highlights tape or embedded video clips.

This course centers on a real-world project, which should come from a real company with a real product. You will work to find project and client early in the semester. The important project deliverables will be directed to both your “client” and your instructor.

Desired Learning Outcomes Include:

  • Collaborate successfully as a team to plan a usability test

  • Demonstrate the ability to conduct an effective usability test, based on a test plan

  • Analyze the results accurately and coherently

  • Present the results in effective oral and written forms
