The first was a heuristic evaluation of our low fidelity mockup. The purpose of this test was to identify any obvious improvements based on the evaluation of an expert in HCI.
Heuristic evaluation is a research method where the usability of a software is evaluated by presenting it to an expert trained in usability. The expert uses the “heuristics” prevalent in the industry to evaluate the product. We recruited one HCI graduate student for the study to evaluate our first low fidelity mockup.
