Summary Usability testing and user experience research typically take place in a controlled lab with small groups. While this type of testing is essential to user experience design, more companies are also looking to test large sample sizes to be able compare data according to specific user populations and see how their experiences differ across user groups.

It gives practitioners the guidance they need to collect a wealth of data through cost-effective, efficient, and reliable practices. The reader will develop a solid understanding of the capabilities of online usability testing, when it's appropriate to use and not use, and will learn about the various types of online usability testing techniques. *The first guide for conducting large-scale user experience research using the internet *Presents how-to conduct online tests with 1000s of participants - from start to finish *Outlines essential tips for online studies to ensure cost-efficient and reliable results
