Usability tutorial

Originally created for Girl Geek Dinner in Ottawa, you can use this tutorial to start a discussion about how you can integrate usability principles into your website planning at your department or organization. Alternatively, re-use the prezi to create your own presentation. If you do, I’d love to know about it. The video was made using Camtasia Studio.

    You are very welcome and thanks so much for inviting me to speak Kelly & Veronica, I had a blast!

    I really felt like I had to make it better than the speech since the attendees were so smart and experienced already. Nothing like a little spark of professional competitiveness to bring out the best in us, eh Charles? ;)
