Abstract

Usability evaluation is one of the most important stages inside the user-centered design. Heuristic evaluation is a highlighted method due to its great capability to detect a high number of usability issues, its low cost and simplicity; however, the search and selection of the best heuristics is probably the most difficult task of the methodology. This paper describes the process carried out to enter a set of heuristics (for interactive digital television environments) to Open Repository of the Open-HEREDEUX, which aims to minimize the effort to select the most suitable heuristics to evaluate an interactive system.
