Get A Free User Experience Audit and Help Train UXers

people workingWould you like to get FREE advice on how to improve the user experience of your product, website, or app? And help train the next generation of UX designers?

I am an Adjunct Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point Human Technology Interaction program. This semester I’m teaching a course on Human Information Processing. We’ll be covering:

  • Decision-making
  • Social communities
  • Motivation
  • Thinking and Memory
  • Vision and Perception

In the class we use real life case studies. A team of 3-4 students is assigned to a client. They perform a User Experience (UX) Audit and make suggestions for changes to improve the user experience.

If you have a project/product that you would like evaluated you can apply to be a team case study. If chosen you receive a free audit and you will be helping to train the next generation of UX designers.

What you should expect:

  • You will  spend about 2-3 hours a month for February, March, April, and early May working with your team. This will be via email, Skype and/or teleconference. You will be speaking with them about your website, software, or app, your target audience and goals and giving them feedback on the  Audit report that they prepare for you.
  • At the end of the semester you will have suggestions for how to re-design your product to improve the user experience, and you will have some example mock-ups. Please note that you should not expect an entire re-design of your product and you should not expect actual progamming/coding.

Here are the requirements:

  • You have an existing or prototyped website, software, or app, in English.
  • The team can access the product or prototype.
  • If it is a prototype it needs to remain stable during the duration of the semester.
  • You have time to meet with the team remotely, answer their questions and give feedback in a timely manner.

Here’s what you need to submit in an email to:

  • Your Name:
  • Your Contact Info:
  • Brief Description of the product/website/app etc:
  • Brief Description of your user experience challenges:
  • Instructions for how we can access the product:
  • Who the product is for — /users/visitors/intended audience:
  • What the users/visitors/intended audience want to do with the product:
  • What YOU want them to do with the product:
  • Anything else you think we should know:

Let me know if you have questions, and thanks in advance for submitting your product for a possible evaluation.
