Usability testing EdWeb CMS with an audience

Yesterday I ran a series of usability testing sessions that were observed by nearly 30 colleagues, most of whom are customers of our service. Some teams would want to do this in private, but not us! We’re happy to have our customers help us identify where we can improve.

Plus, we’ve more usability sessions in the next few weeks to showcase our new service, so read on to find out more and come along to the next one.
