Heuristic evaluation of user interfaces.

Speaker:  Jean Vanderdonckt – Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Heuristic evaluation is a usability inspection method that consists of submitting any user interface of an interactive system to a set of recognized principles, called heuristics. These heuristics could be set of usability guidelines, style guides, rules of thumb, design rules, ergonomic criteria. Specific sets of guidelines exist for assessing the accessibility of an interactive system, such as W3C contents accessibility guidelines. This lecture provides an overview of heuristic evaluation, a series of real-world examples for web sites, mobile applications, muti-device interfaces, and reviews some software that support evaluators in conducting (semi-)automated evaluation of web sites by guideline review.
