The newest lab addition to the GIT family is the Web Device and Usability Lab. It’s located in Santa Catalina 157, and the official opening is fall 2014. The lab contains numerous devices, from a big-screen TV to smartphones, for testing websites and web applications. The lab also has software available for students to test websites for user experience and usability issues.
“This lab is going to allow for students, faculty and community members to test websites for usability and for any display issues that can happen when transitioning between different screen sizes,” said Deborah Prewitt, lecturer in GIT and co-director of the lab. “It’s also going to allow students to use Morae, a great click-tracking software that will test whether the elements on your webpage are placed where users are looking for them.”
Students are welcome to use the lab. Contact Christina Carrasquilla or Deborah Prewitt for access.
