Usability Testing for utk.edu — Student Edition!

Before we redesigned utk.edu earlier this year, we conducted usability testing with prospective students to gain a better understanding of how one of our most important audience segments uses higher education websites. Going forward, we want to know how our internal community interacts with our primary website.

With that in mind, the UT Web Team will be conducting usability testing on utk.edu with students (9/27) and faculty and staff (9/28) in the UT CCI-ORNL User-Experience Laboratory. The insight we gain from this research will guide us as we continue to make improvements to one of our most important online resources.

We Need Your Help!

We invite current students (undergrad and grad) to show us how you use utk.edu. If you have an hour on Thursday, September 27, to show us how you navigate the site and offer feedback on your experience, please let us know by completing this simple registration form. We’ll be in touch soon regarding scheduling.

Please note that due to lab size limitations, we are only able to schedule two people per time slot. We are planning to continue this research with the university community, so we will keep your contact information on file and may reach out to you regarding future tests.

Thanks in advance from the UT Web Team!

Registration is now closed. Thanks for your interest! If you’d be interested in participating in future testing, let us know by e-mailing the UT Web Team. Please include “Usability Testing” in your subject line and note your current student status (e.g. freshman, sophomore, graduate student, etc.) and campus contact information.
