Crowdsourced Web Site Evaluation with CrowdStudy
Many different automatic usability evaluation tools have been specifically developed for web sites and web-based services, but they usually cannot replace user testing. At the same time, traditional usability evaluation methods can be both expensive and time consuming. We will demonstrate CrowdStudy, a toolkit for crowdsourced testing of web interfaces that allows, not only to efficiently recruit larger amounts of test users, but also to evaluate web sites under many different conditions.
