Welcome to UQ Usability Laboratory (UQUL)

A state-of-the-art facility for user-centered design

The University of Queensland Usability Laboratory (UQUL) hosts the research of CERG and is now part of UQ's contribution to NICTA's Cognitive and Organisational Systems Engineering (COSE) project.

On this page we describe the UQUL itself as well as some of the equipment we use in our research --- both UQUL equipment and more specialised CERG equipment. In 2009 we received funding from UQ's Major Equipment Infrastructure fund to perform a major upgrade of the UQUL equipment and also to equip the laboratory with portable units for AV recordings in field environments.

See photos of our first industry Short Course in 2004. We covered all aspects of user-centred design, including user testing of prototypes in the UQUL.
