Testing the Testing Software: Morae 1.3 is put through its paces

A new version of Morae ...

"Morae is an indispensable tool for anyone who conducts PC-based usability studies. It's indispensable for two reasons. Firstly, it’s good. Secondly, it doesn't have any competitors. There just isn't anything out there that enables you to do live logging and easily generate picture-in-picture full resolution highlight videos from your user studies.

If you don't already have it, I recommend contacting techsmith and requesting a copy of the trial version. It's fully functional for 15 days so you'll have enough time to run at least one study. The interface is quite simple and doesn’t have an overwhelming set of features, almost anyone who has done a little video editing before should be able to just pick it up and start making highlight videos. However, it doesn’t really tell you how to structure and run a user study, so if you are a new-comer to user research, you will benefit from getting yourself a usability textbook like Kunivasky (2003), Rubin (1994), or one of the many others that are available."   continued ...   (Via Usability News)
