What is a Remote Usability Video?
In the field of user experience research (UX research) Remote Usability Videos are unmoderated remote usability tests where participants and facilitators are in different locations. If you’re facing a tight timeframe, limited resources, or need a lot of testers or testers from all over the world – remote usability testing is especially useful. Testers can conduct the test whenever they want and wherever they are, as they use their own devices to conduct the test.
Since there’s no opportunity to help or interact with the testers if they struggle with a task, it’s especially important to prepare detailed test cases for this kind of user research. Testers will then conduct the given tasks and record themselves while doing so. Using the think-aloud method they describe what they see, whether they like it or not (and why), and explain if something confuses them and why. When you analyze the usability video afterwards the testers thoughts and actions are comprehensive and clear.
The Challenge: create truly user-centered products
In software development and user experience design, the main focus lies on creating clear and user-friendly products. However, it’s extremely difficult to predict what your target group thinks, especially when creating complex applications. Developers and designers asking themselves “What would I like” or “How would I use it” is not enough to create a truly user-centered product, and may even be counter-productive. You need user testing with real users if you want to make sure you’re building a product your customers will really use, and like.
Operational blindness makes it harder and harder for development teams to take the perspective of end-users into account. What seems to be logical during the conceptual phase might be contradictory for customers upon release.
Even if your software might be functional, essential parts of your digital product, like the navigation structure, might still be unintelligible for the user. This makes an external perspective on UX design very necessary, because even the best features of a product are useless if they’re too difficult to use.
The Solution: an in-depth look into the mind of your customer
The Crowd turns on their cameras for you, so you can see every detail of the testing process. By using the think-aloud principle, your test group performs various use cases and narrates what they have on their mind while doing so.
This is how you get an insight into what your target group thinks about your user interface and how fast they find their way to the core features of your product. Every hesitation and every quest for a button or area of the menu is recorded. You have the opportunity to track every single move of our testers as they test your product.
