Herzliche Einladung zum CSLEARN-Talk mit Assoc.-Prof. Pejman Mirza-Babaei (Ontario Tech University) am 18.10.2019. Thema: "Insights on methodologies for games usability and user experience research".

Abstract

Usability and User Experience research is becoming more integrated into the game development cycle. However, conducting evaluation sessions are not always straightforward, as they often require specialized approaches, equipment and expertise. In addition to leveraging established user research methods, game researchers increasingly incorporate novel combinations of methods, measurements and visualizations to better understand player experience. In this talk, Dr. Mirza-Babaei will provide a summary of his research in developing new evaluation methodologies, user research tools and data visualisations for usability and user experience research on under-development titles.
