Evaluating a Multimedia Authoring Tool.
John, Bonnie E.; Mashyna, Matthew M.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v48 n11 p1004-22 Nov 1997
Presents a case study of a computer scientist learning and using the Cognitive Walkthrough (CW) technique to assess a multimedia authoring tool. Compares predictions by the analysis to the usability problems found in empirical usability tests. Presents several hypotheses about the cause of low effectiveness, which suggest that additional knowledge, currently tacit in CW-experts, could be used to improve the technique. (AEF)
