Eye Tracking: A State-of-the-Art Tool to Evaluate Oracle Applications

Joyce Ohgi
Joyce Ohgi

Come see state-of-the-art innovation in user experience evaluation. “Eye tracking” is an important new usability research tool that enables us to determine where a user’s visual attention is focused when completing online tasks. This information helps us make important interface design decisions, so that tasks can be completed more quickly and with less confusion.

This interactive demo will showcase advanced technology, built into a specialized display, that can record where one is looking while using a computer. These recordings can be used to address address usability issues such as: icon design, visual navigation within a table, and distracting elements on a page.

This fun, 2-minute demo will include a short, walk-up calibration to the equipment followed by 2 or 3 short tasks. The results will be reviewed, with discussion of their impact on usability, productivity, and interface design. Finally, the recorded data will be compared with aggregated data from prior demos and directly impact Oracle’s UsableApps website.

Session title: Eye Tracking: A State-of-the-Art Tool to Evaluate Oracle Applications
Session held: M 5-8pm, T 10-3:30, 5:30-7pm, W 10-3:30pm
Location: Booth 4780
