Scotland’s environment website: volunteers wanted to test new site


The Scotland’s environment website team are looking for volunteers to help carry out usability testing of the Scotland’s environment website.

The Scotland’s environment website brings together environmental information and data in one place so that it is easy to search, discover, view, analyse and interpret. Following user feedback, a number of improvements have been made and a new look test version of the website will be launched in June. The site will be very much a work in progress, with more development planned, but feedback is needed on the changes made so far.

To help do this the team are looking for volunteers to take part in online usability testing. This would involve completing a series of short tasks and then feeding back on how you got on. The tasks involve the new map tool, finding information and data on key environmental topics and the general look, feel and design of the website. You can choose to take part in one or more of the test tasks, with each taking 10-15 minutes. Full instructions will be provided. All user testing is anonymous so responses will not be attributed to individuals.

Your help with usability testing will provide valuable feedback that will help inform further improvements to the website.

If you would like to take part in online user testing, please get in touch with the Scotland’s environment Team by using one of the links below to indicate which test tasks you would like to participate in:

We look forward to hearing from you.
