Course Description

Ask yourself, is your website or app being used effectively? Are your users/customers as satisfied as they could be? What makes your users/customers come back? In this course, you will learn the methods to answer these questions with confidence - and backed by solid evidence.

Great usability is one of the key factors in keeping your users engaged and pleased on your website or app. For example, mobile users are five times more likely to abandon a website if the usability for mobiles is poor and 79% of them will find a competitor website to complete their task(*). In addition, a recent Google study shows that you have about five seconds to show users exactly what they are looking for before 61%(*) of them will move on. This means that you need to continually perform usability testing as a core part of your development process.
