Investigation into the Usability of “Enquiry”

  • Charlie Tapster


This report evaluates the usability of the Undergraduate Research Journal: Enquiry, as part of a project to redesign the journal.  The report starts by revisiting the main principles of usability and its importance, followed by an outline of methods for usability evaluation. With this established, we then assess the case study using the heuristic evaluation method proposed by Nielsen (1995). The report concludes with a summary of problems established in the evaluation, and a set of recommendations for improvements.  Charlie Tapster studies Digital Media Production, specializing in web and print design..
