It’s Tuesday and I’m back with more definitions for our Usability ABC. This week, I’d like to start with the following terms regarding usability testing: Usability lab, user, task, user case, and think-aloud protocol. As always I appreciate feedback and input to extend our list of usability related terms.

Today I’ll complement our Usability ABC with five online marketing related terms. Even though the online marketeers among us are most certainly familiar with the terms, for those who aren’t these definitions might come in handy: SEO, traffic, Conversion rate, Weblog, Unique site visitor. Again, these items are added to our growing page of usability terms.
This week I’d like to continue our Usability ABC with some even more basic terms. Those of you who are familiar with the Internet will know them, others maybe not. But even for the keen ones, it might be useful to recall the basic definitions of the following terms: Website, Web page, Homepage, Header, and Footer. As always, these items are added to our growing page of usability terms.
This week I’d like to continue my list of definitions with five terms that also occur on a frequent basis: UCD, User interface, Prototype, Fidelity, and Iterative design. Again I’d like to encourage you to comment on this post for feedback and suggestions you might have for further definitions.
I studied Information Design, and besides to my fellow students and people who work in the field, explaining what I do is not always easy. I believe it is not because really smart people study information design and others just naturally have a hard time getting it. It’s rather that Information Design belongs to a quite new field of studies which most people are not yet familiar with.
