Eye Tracking: Actionable lessons for improved website design

Half Day Workshop, presented by James Breeze.

A hands-on and highly practical workshop examining how Eye Tracking provides insights and learnings which can improve your website designs.

Eye Tracking is a precise method of defining the exact position of a person’s point of gaze on a screen by reflecting infra-red light off the cornea of the eye. James Breeze (IT Psychologist and Eye Tracking expert) will teach you all about Eye Tracking; covering what it is, how it works and how it can be used to see where your customers are looking.

James will also demonstrate a Tobii T60 eye tracker and show you how to run a testing session, as well as interpret the data gathered.

You will discover how Eye Tracking can be used on websites, intranets, mobile phones, TV ads and even supermarket shelves. You will be able to get really stuck in, and even conduct an Eye Tracking test yourself!
