Student Usability Challenge Competition

Usability is an exciting topic, which becomes more and more important and at the same time it’s a booming job market. The specific group for software ergonomics in the human-computer interaction department of the computer science association would like to know what students can achieve today and advertises therefore a contest for the best usability analysis of a website. The three best entrees will be rewarded at the “Mensch und Computer 2012” conference with 500€ each.

What to do? Show us what you’ve achieved during your studies. Choose suitable methods and apply them convincingly. Find relevant usability problems, make up a report and submit your results.
