The University of Waikato Usability Laboratory (G1.13)

The Usability laboratory is an environment where researchers are able to study and assess the usability of products while being used by their intended users. Our focus is the application of usability practices in IT development. Our main goals are to promote and facilitate the use of usability practices through the provision of usability testing facilities, resources and services.

The laboratory offers two testing rooms, a viewing room, an overview room and a reception area. The viewing room provides a range of video, audio and computer equipment and tools to record proceedings. Digital video is used, and all the equipment is under computer control and can be configured from a computer. The laboratory provides some of the most comprehensive usability facilities available.
