FSE Program: Sign up for usability testing by June 24th

Building off of the high level feedback and in line with the goals around refinement and unification for 6.1, the outreach program is going to try something new and pair up members of the program with community designers. The aim is to directly learn what kind of refinement is needed by watching someone use the current experience. In the process, perhaps this effort can also engage folks in a new way who might not have been able to participate as much before!


Designers will be paired with 1 or more folks, depending on their capacity and interest, from the outreach program based on ideal timezone matches. Once paired, they will then find time between June 20th and July 1st to record a 15 minute call on Zoom going through one of two tasks: Creating & applying a new headerHeader The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes.; using and customizing patterns.
