Duration: 7 min.
Caroline is one of the authors of User Interface Design and Evaluation, a beginning text for technical communicators moving into user interface design. Caroline says this book is a perfect start for users looking to add usability basics to their toolbox. Caroline also talks about forms, and how the best forms are ones you barely notice.
