Library Student GREAT DAY Poster Presenters!

BriggmannKudos to Library Interns Brianne Briggmann and Emma Medina, who presented “Usability Testing: Testing the Functionality of Library Research Tutorials,” at SUNY Geneseo Great Day 2019.  Brianne and Emma developed online tutorials  for citing information and  IDS services, using the LibWizard application. They then conducted  usability tests in order to make the tutorials more user friendly.

Brianne and Emma  developed a qualitative test  to determine the overall ease of going through the tutorials–the structure, grammatical issues, design format, and general troubleshooting; and a quantitative test to determine the educational results, such as tutorial effectiveness and the students’ understanding of the concepts. Both of these tests were conducted with a sample of 8 undergraduates at various stages of their academic careers. The results allowed Brianne and Emma to indicate the areas of the tutorials that need improvement, which can  enhance the tutorials that were used in this testing process, and also  aid in the development of future tutorials.

Brianne Briggmann is double majoring in English Literature and French. Emma Medina is majoring in English Literature.  Brandon West, Head of Library Research Instruction, is  the faculty sponsor for this project.
