Belén & Bernard
Belén Barros Pena is a lead interaction designer with LBi London. She is nuts about mobile and prototyping, in that order.

Bernard Tyers is a mobile packet core engineer with Nokia Siemens Networks. He has a knack for human factors in technology, and for building things.

They've joined forces to solve the riddle of how to record usability testing sessions with mobile devices on a tight budget. They also like keeping things short.

Usability Testing with Mobile Devices: A Crash Course

If you were tasked tomorrow with organising usability testing for a mobile application or website, would you know what to do? Where would you test, in a lab or in the field? Which handset would you use? Which connection type? How would you record the tests?

We won't actually tell you: we'll show you! We'll usability test a mobile website in front of your eyes, and answer the basic questions in the process.

After attending this session, you'll be ready to face the challenges of usability testing for mobile software.

Thursday, 12 May @ 14:20-14:50
