Usability test note taking, how to do it and what to write?

We at Bunnyfoot complete a lot of user tests on a day to day basis, many of us having years, and some, even centuries of experience in moderating user testing sessions. With each of us adopting our own unique ways of note taking, I want to share with you our top tips and tricks to get the most out of your notes when running a session.


The Pros and Cons of conducting Usability Testing with multiple participants at the same time

Our lead Usability Testing course trainer Cathy Carr recently encountered an interesting question from one of her attendees: ‘Would you ever test with more than one participants in a single session?’. The short answer is ‘yes’. Surprised?


Five users will find 85% of the usability problems – and other myths about usability testing

I recently had the pleasure of attending Rolf Molich’s “Five users will find 85% of the usability problems – and other myths about usability testing” talk hosted by UX Sheffield. This was part of a series of Rolf Molich talks, held in Oxford, Sheffield and London – all sponsored by Bunnyfoot.

Firstly, what is the ‘context of use’?

It’s an obvious thing to say but people don’t live in a vacuum; they’re subject to all sorts of influences which can affect their experience of using products.

These influences can come from a variety of sources, e.g.:

  • The physical environment (e.g. ambient temperature and light levels)
  • Social settings (e.g. are they working alone or in a team? What are the social norms?)
  • The technical environment (e.g. is WiFi available?)
  • Commercial and legal requirements (e.g. what procedures have to be followed?)

All of the things that affect someone’s usage of a product can be defined as the ‘context of use’.


The reality of Virtual Reality user testing – our top tips

We have had a lot of questions recently about how we run usability testing in virtual reality environments so we put together some tips that should help you avoid pitfalls your first time around.

At Bunnyfoot we spend a lot of time looking at new technology. In particular, virtual reality has been a hot topic this year and has become a lot more accessible to the mainstream with devices like Samsung’s Gear VR headset being so affordable.


UX Guru Rolf Molich to deliver official certification

This week we added a new course to our hugely popular CPUX-foundation certification course and exam. From November, those who have successfully passed the foundation exam can take our new Certification in User Testing which will be run by UX Guru Rolf Molich.


Doing it for the kids

Earlier this week, we ran a workshop with the third year Product and Interaction Design students at Ravensbourne’s campus in North Greenwich. As Alumni of Ravensbourne who benefited from the University’s connections with industry during our time there, we were privileged to go and share our industry knowledge and experience with the students.


The guide to UX testing with kids

Technology and kids go together like peanut butter and jam. It’s not healthy, but they’re inseparable. As anxious adults, we tend to limit our children’s exposure to technology, but this could be worse for their development and our own understanding of technology today. This week, Cathy Carr, our Expert Consultant and Course Instructor takes a look at how to create a model environments to observe technology usage by our future generation.


Mobile and Tablet Testing at Bunnyfoot

Here at Bunnyfoot we’re always looking to improve and innovate on our processes, methodologies and equipment. As a User Experience Consultancy, testing our products on customers is at the very centre of what we do. Innovation in testing is pivotal for us to have the most natural way to observe our participants. Over the last 3 years we’ve seen a huge increase in the amount of mobile and tablet testing we carry out on a weekly basis – mainly driven by the rise of ‘mobile-first’ design.


Leap day charity event

I don’t know if you realised this, but we have a free day this year! Yes, 1 free day. How would you spend it? Let’s be honest, you’d probably just go to work.

At Bunnyfoot, we decided to donate the extra day to charity so we got in touch with some exceptionally brilliant charities that make a difference to our world but are just not big enough to provide the super slick websites that established charities can.
