"After seeing real users interact with our prototypes, we gained valuable insights that impacted project development. Sometimes user behaviors affirmed our assumptions, and sometimes they made us completely reconsider our approach. Either way, usability testing has been essential to improved user experiences on our donor-facing digital properties."
- Steve Anderson, Director of Digital Strategy, U of M Foundation
"This testing enabled us to customize our local instances of Moodle to improve the user experience for University of Minnesota teachers and learners. We were also able to share the results with the larger Moodle community to collectively build solutions for core Moodle code."
