eLab has received a mandate from the web service of Canton Ticino (Area dei servizi amministrativi e gestione del web,¬†Cancelleria dello Stato, Repubblica e Cantone Ticino) to run a usability analysis of the new¬†website of¬†Canton Ticino:¬†www.ti.ch.
The analysis has¬†been done¬†through an eye-tracking tool, which has¬†monitored the movements of the eyes¬†on the screen, thus allowing a detailed analysis of the¬†paths that visitors follow while navigating in a¬†website.
For the usability analysis a combination of empirical methods, i.e., the observation of the users while navigating¬†in a website, with inspection methods, through which the website has been¬†analyzed and evaluated by an expert, has been¬†adopted. The empirical part has been¬†run through some tests done by the final users of the website (user testing), giving them a series of¬†tasks to perform¬†in the website, and observing their behavior, specifically through the eye-tracking tool. This part has involved 18 users: 11 young users, selected from the students of USI;¬†4 deaf users (2 young professionals and 2 retired users) associated to the¬†Schweizerischer Geh√∂rlosenbund¬†SGB-FSS; 3 professionals active in different¬†fields¬†(legal, forensic, touristic). The expert inspection has been¬†run in order to analyse some parts of the website, specifically the internal search engine.
The report with the results of the analyis was released¬†at the end of June¬†2016.
