Offering products or services, that satisfy customer's needs and stand out amongst competitors, has become an increasingly tough challenge for many companies today. To successfully master that challenge, it is vital to understand user's needs and tasks, the involved stakeholders, the target market, but also the technology involved and its implications. Usability Engineering offers a number of different tools and methods to solve those problems and gather the required information.


Target

During the summerschool the participants will work in groups on a software project in an early stage and apply one or more Usability Engineering techniques (e.g. Personas, Paper Prototypes, Guerilla Testing). Participants will learn how to use the required Usability Engineering techniques.

There are 40 places for this module of the summer school. Official registration by mail (to: christian.reimann (@) fh-dortmund.de) and confirmation by the trainer is mandatory. Deadline for registration is over.
