We’re proud to announce our forthcoming book Remote Research, which will be published by Rosenfeld Media in 2009! It’s a book for everyone who’s interested in learning why, when, and how to design and conduct remote user research studies themselves.
From the book publisher’s website:
Remote user research describes any research method that allows you to observe, interview, or get feedback from users while they’re at a distance, in their “native environment” (at their desk, in their home or office) doing their own tasks. Remote studies allow you to recruit quickly, cheaply, and immediately, and give you the opportunity to observe users as they behave naturally in their own environment, on their own time. Our book will teach you how to design and conduct remote research studies, top-to-bottom, with little more than a phone and a laptop.
Be sure to follow the Remote Research book blog to get updates, read chapter excerpts, and even contribute your own suggestions and requests for the book; it’s still in progress, so we want to hear your comments!
