Usability Topics

Usability is a growing field of study and practice as system owners and managers become more aware of the impact of good usability and the value usability adds to any system. Within the last decade, the focus has shifted from simply getting information online to having web-based user interfaces be easily understood by the target users.

Very few accurate sources of information about usability, and web usability, exist. Some of this is due to disagreement among the experts in the usability world concerning what is most important to make a web-based interface usable. Eventually, we hope this site will become a resource anyone interested in usability can come to learn more. For now, these few links provide a basic understanding of usability, why we are interested in usability, and an explanation about a standard questionnaire that can be used to compare usability tests during site redesign or across sites.
