Most recently I’m looking for something web usability and got great tips which is shared by Regnard at webstandards. Just Three Ways To Improve Web Usability. Still, I’m looking for new something, if you have — share in comments.
Web designers and developers can do three simple steps to improve their working usability skills:
- Know Your Users – This step puts almost everything into context. By using any available method to elicit feedback from the target users, you can have a better what they really need to do effectively on the website.
- Design For the Users – Upon having a better idea what the users need, the next step is to make it more easy for them to complete their tasks. Let’s take an online store for example: Place critical links in easier to access areas and make prioritized buttons like checkout or emptying the cart more conspicuous.
- Test! – A wise man said that simple testing beats zero testing any day, so try to test your design. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate lab set-up, but having an open mind get weird and unexpected from a user helps.
