Chapter Introduction | Web Resources | Assignment Comments | Teaching Materials



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.

This paper by Michael Levi and Frederick Conrad discusses a study in which heuristic evaluation was used to evaluate a World Wide Web prototype.

David Kieras has worked to extend GOMS by developing the NGOMSL notation and others, for which he provides links on this page. A useful selection of 'how to' resources is also available.

This site provides a short description of Fitts' Law and has links to other sites.

Scott MacKenzie's home page contains links to his many papers on Fitts' Law and there is also a section with links to introductory material.

This link to Scott MacKenzie's (1991) Doctoral Thesis provides a lot of information for those who want to study Fitts' Law in depth.
