Dear Colleagues,

Thank you all again, for your good projects and participation in my 
courses over the past two decades.

I'm again teaching Info251 Web Usability, for the SJSU iSchool for the 
Spring 2023 semester. The 2023 Spring semester runs January 25 - May 15

I require each student to work with a 'client' to practice usability 
testing methods on an existing library Web site, area of a Web site or 
tool on a Web site with a specific group of users in mind. I prefer they 
work with a library or library organization.

Students need to make their choice of project topics by February 6.

My students will report to you, and to me, their analyses of the 
usability testing they perform on your site, area, or tool in the 
context of the user group you are interested in.

I cannot guarantee that any of my students will choose your 
site.Students may also choose the library they currently work in or a 
non-profit organization known to them to work with. So, if you would 
like to be on the list for my students to consider please email me with 
the following information:

What I need from you:

1. Contact person(s) with email and telephone numbers (this would be the 
'client' that students are expected to interview and interact with 
cooperatively perform usability testing)

2. The URL of the current Web site, Web site area, or Web tool you'd 
like to have usability tested and a description of the patron group(s) 
you'd like them to focus on.

3. We may need you to recruit/supply 3-5 typical users to interact with 
my students as they practice usability testing methods. All interactions 
are online via email, chat, etc.

4. A commitment by the contact person(s) to be available by email or 
chat to work with my students. Availability of a contact person is critical.

I will respond to you with additional questions and/or whether your 
site, tool, and/or patron group(s) fits our scope in terms of time and 
expertise of students and verify you want to be on the list.

Thank you!
