Transforming your staff's potential

Friday, April 4, 2008 Tidbits: Usability

Here is the weekly sampling from my favorites list. This time I chose the tag "Usability". Here's what I found I have:

Top Five Ways to Improve your Blog's Usability: A good article on the "it's so obvious we often don't see it" pointers for good blogging. From ProBlogger

Designing Usable, Self-Paced e-Learning Courses: A Practical Guide: This guide, from eLearn Magazine, is primarily designed to help teams of instructional designers and content experts create effective, self-paced e-learning. It teaches best practices for improving usability that can be applied by any instructional designers or content experts and was created so that no prior knowledge of usability is required to use the techniques.

What Do You Mean When You Say "Usability"?: Again from eLearn Magazine, an article creating a working definition for the term Usability and discussing how to apply it in practice.

Usability Toolkit: This resource, from the Society for Technical Communication, is a collection of forms, checklists and other useful documents for conducting usability tests and user interviews.

Templates & Examples from These templates, forms, and examples are organized by steps in the usability process. They can be customized for. All are in the public domain and can be freely downloaded.

LMS Usability Testing: From Christy Tucker at Experiencing eLearning , a laundry list of functions to test for usability when piloting an LMS.
