The Most Fundamental Concept in Usability

The Most Fundamental Concept in Usability | UX Design | Scoop.it

There are a number of methods to improve the usability of an interface.  While it's hard to identify one overarching concept that's fundamental to the whole idea of usability, I think there's one that underlies most methods and desirable outcomes.  That concept is that the developer is not the user.

Are Severe Problems Uncovered Earlier in Usability Tests?

Are Severe Problems Uncovered Earlier in Usability Tests? | UX Design | Scoop.it

The advantage of looking at multiple studies using different devices, facilitators, and evaluators is that we don't need to rely on a single study with its potential flaws and idiosyncrasies to draw a conclusion about the relationship between frequency and severity.

Rating the Severity of Usability Problems

Rating the Severity of Usability Problems | UX Design | Scoop.it

Accounting for problem frequency and severity are two critical ingredients when communicating the importance of usability problems. They are also two of the inputs needed for a Failure Modes Effects Analysis (FMEA), a more structured prioritization process.

Hannes's curator insight, April 3, 2013 12:19 PM

Photos are among the first things people pay attention to while browsing the Internet. They influence the first impression, and consequently might have a crucial impact on whether users want to continue exploring content or not. We can find photos everywhere in web design, and by representing the real world they complement information, explain concepts and augment atmospheres that we can relate to emotionally. But it's challenging to manage content in the currently growing multi screen landscape since the original purpose is easily lost in translation from one device to another. So I think it's a good idea to have a usability perspective on photos and maintain a consistency through every channel.

Accuracy vs. Insights in Quantitative Usability (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox)

The Next UX Revolution: Transforming Stodgy Enterprise Applications Into Engaging Experiences | UX Magazine

The Next UX Revolution: Transforming Stodgy Enterprise Applications Into Engaging Experiences | UX Magazine | UX Design | Scoop.it

As consumer UX underwent a renaissance over the last decade, enterprise software stagnated with a design sensibility from the dial-up era.

Usability—much less beauty—was never a priority for business software. All that mattered was that large and complex applications worked. What’s the point of tweaking and beautifying when basic functionality is challenging enough and all of your competitors are equally sub par?

The point is users. Not yesterday’s users who eventually adapted to whatever complex software product you put in front of them. Those users are retiring. I’m talking about millennial workers who know better than to settle for unwieldy, confusing applications that only make their jobs harder.

Creating the Windows 8 user experience - Building Windows 8 - Site Home - MSDN Blogs | UX Design | Scoop.it

This blog often focuses on the bits and features and less on the “philosophy” or “context” of the product. Given the level of brand new innovations in Windows 8, however, we think it is worth putting Windows 8 in the context in which we approached the design.

Thinking Aloud: The #1 Usability Tool (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox)
