This workshop covers best practices of eyetracking for usability and UX purposes. We start with how to properly set up and prepare an eyetracking study as well as which participants are suitable and what to consider regarding the test environment. When and how eyetracking should be used will be another discussion topic. The core element of the workshop will be hands on exercises with stationary and mobile eyetracking equipment. After recording sufficient data live within the workshop we analyse and discuss the test results.
