User Research is critical to user-centred design. Ultimately if you’re not involving users in your design process you’re not practicing UX. However, you don’t necessarily need to get participants in a lab to do high quality user research. On the other hand, you may feel that self moderated research tools (UserTesting.com) etc don’t provide all the valuable insights that you get in the lab.

During this talk, Adam will discuss how Remote Moderated User Research can blend the quality of lab based research with the speed and value of guerilla methods.

In this talk, we’ll explore:

Pros and Cons of remote moderated research
Lessons from triumphs and disasters of over 500 remote moderated sessions
How to plan this type of research
How you can introduce iterative research into your design process
Answers to your questions
