Week 7 – More Eye tracking

I have had a lot to think about over the last week about eye tracking and the types of tasks one would create with it.  I spoke with a coworker at my work and in his 10+ year career and he stated that he had only used eye tracking one time.  It seems that it has its uses but is not necessarily a go-to tool for usability testing.  It is more for getting an in-depth perspective on usability issues rather than an initial test.  My coworker stated that he had used it for testing forms and how the user navigated around them.

I’m glad I learned about eye tracking in this last segment but I am not sure how much use I will get out of it, especially since this was a two week unit.  I guess I’m okay with it though, work/life balance and all that.  See you in January.
