Musings from Mike Atkinson on Internet strategy, usability, and more...

Free usability guide

I recently came across this lil’ ditty from our UK brethren. It’s a free Web Usability Guide and it’s worth a whole lot more than free.

It’s a 30-page PDF ebook that covers the following topics:

  • Usability – 4 basic principles
  • Writing for the web – 8 guidelines
  • E-commerce – 10 guidelines
  • User-centered design (UCD) – 6 methods
  • Usability testing – 8 guidelines

It’s written in a very engaging style, with quotes and stats peppered throughout. It’s very simple to digest and covers important 101 concepts.
