Dartmouth College is taking a new approach to creating content for their academic department sites by enlisting the help of students to tell their stories.
Educational partnerships have much potential to bridge higher education and the UX industry. To that mission, TryMyUI’s EDU Program is launching two year-round opportunities for students of design and web development: UX Representatives (UXrep) & Contributors…
I had never heard of usability testing, let alone TryMyUI, when I started the UX design class at ECU. The entire class was very intimidating in the first few days. Our task was to test the NC Coastal Atlas website with users and to make recommendations for the design team. The idea was great, but my first thought was, “Where do I start?”
Hands-on learning is invaluable in the technology industry. In the world of UX design and web development, students have much to learn from industry experts.
TryMyUI’s EDU Program supplements UX and design classes with research support, training, and access to industry experts. An educational partnership promises access to TryMyUI webinars, workshops, facetime with UX experts, and connections to TryMyUI partners in the tech industry.
What does the future hold for the UX field? We talked to East Carolina University’s Guiseppe Getto, a UX professor, researcher, and consultant, about teaching UX and looking into the field’s future in the hands of today’s students.
At TryMyUI, we believe that usability testing informs good web design. Even the best UX designers need to take a step back and view their project from the end user’s perspective, simply because as humans we tend to get caught up in our own biases.
We also believe that usability testing is one of the most valuable things a company can do for itself to drive up conversion rates and communicate the right message to visitors.
Simply put, it’s a tool that results in a better outcome on all sides.
