The websites in this section provide additional information about some of the analytical methods discussed in chapter 15, and examples of their application; particularly in the design of mobile technologies such as cell phones.
http://usableweb.com This site contains links to sites that deal specifically with heuristic evaluation for the web. For example, http://usableweb.com/topics/000606-0-0.html offers useful guidance on how to apply Nielsen's heuristics to website evaluation. http://www.useit.com/papers/heuristic Not surprisingly Jakob Nielsen's site has a large section on heuristic evaluation, including his own papers, 'how to' information and a list of references to studies that compare the efficacy of heuristic evaluation with other evaluation methods; particularly user testing and walkthroughs.
Scott MacKenzie's home page - http://www.yorku.ca/mack/ - contains links to his many papers on Fitts' Law and there is also a section with links to introductory material. http://www.yorku.ca/mack/phd.html This link to Scott MacKenzie's (1991) Doctoral Thesis provides a lot of information for those who want to study Fitts' Law in depth.
http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2647364 This paper by researchers at Georgia Tech, USA describes touchscreen interaction for working dogs in domestic settings. They explore how dogs trained to use touchscreens could provide a way for the dogs to communicate critical information to humans. Fitts’ law is used to test the efficacy of different design solutions.
