One organization may claim to present comprehensive coverage of a topic while another may cover just one aspect of a topic. </p><p>Is the web site valuable compared to others on the same topic?

Objective sites will present information with a minimum of bias, with a minimum intention to persuade. </p><p>Is the information presented with a particular bias? Explain particular bias: Organization claims to be unbiased. Reference URL(s): http://www.ted.com/about/our-organization/how-ted-works/debunking-ted-myths </p><p>Yes No </p><p>Does the site uses advertising that may be a conflict of interest with the content? Reference URL(s): </p><p>Yes No </p><p>Does the site employ visible, evident call to actions to persuade you or sell something? Reference URL(s): http://www.ted.com/talks/jamie_oliver </p><p>Yes No </p><p>Does the site employ an unconventional, unique interface design to persuade users to click? Reference URL(s): http://www.ted.com/talks/jamie_oliver </p><p>Yes No </p><p>ACCURACY There are few standards available on the web to verify the accuracy of information. It is the responsibility of the reader to beware of the information presented. Be sure to differentiate fact from opinion. </p><p>Is the information reliable? If the publisher is affiliated with a known institution, this could be a clue. The talks are given by killed professionals, peer reviewed scientists well established artists and designers.

Consider colour in backgrounds, text and navigation systems. Add screenshot of interface indicating the area evaluated and give details about your rating: </p><p> Excellent Good Developing Weak N/A </p><p>CALL TO ACTIONS AND ACTIONABLE ELEMENTS - Follows the TED.com branding - Primary actionable elements Red - Secondary actionable elements Light gray </p><p>Forgiveness Evidence of having created an effective interface, the Web site is forgiving, instilling users with a sense of control and pace. Add screenshot of interface or diagram of a task indicating the area evaluated and give details about your rating: </p><p> Excellent Good Developing Weak N/A </p><p>I noticed that although the site had great design and information architecture but the complete user experience was not thought-through/implemented. </p><p>A lot of places where feedback can be given in the form of JavaScript type validation, it is missing. </p><p>Empty comment box and pressing Submit content goes to blank error page, instead of showing error feedback on same screen so user can make correction. </p></li><li><p>Akshay Chauhan </p><p>User Interface Evaluation Assignment 3 July 22, 2014 Human Factor for Interface Design - New Media Design and Web Development Program Digital Arts Department - BCIT School of Business </p><p>8 </p><p>Search does not have autocomplete. </p><p>Search doesnt provide any related keywords. </p><p>Screenshot added below. </p><p>Feedback Without feedback, users might not be sure that their action has actually been received and processed by the computer. Consider page download times and the use of visual and audio aids to response to expected delays, help features, task oriented help, Hints and tips.

No feedbacks/validations</p><p> Error is on a separate pages</p><p> Search system could be improved.</p><p>2) Design and graphics is clearly at par with print design magazines.</p><p>3) Due to the browsing habits of TED content consumers, they get away without having a good internalsearch engine. </p><p>TED videos are also search via google most of the time as well. Their videos are also present on Youtube. </p><p>4) Content organisers/IA and content curators/managers are of utmost importance to them as each contenthas to be checked for correct tagging and categorization as well as massive amount of information on the site. </p></li><li><p>Akshay Chauhan </p><p>User Interface Evaluation Assignment 3 July 22, 2014 Human Factor for Interface Design - New Media Design and Web Development Program Digital Arts Department - BCIT School of Business </p><p>10 </p></li><li><p>Akshay Chauhan </p><p>User Interface Evaluation Assignment 3 July 22, 2014 Human Factor for Interface Design - New Media Design and Web Development Program Digital Arts Department - BCIT School of Business </p><p>11 </p><p>User Interface Evaluation </p><p>Web site: bhphotovideo.com </p><p>WEB SITE CREDIBILITY </p><p>AUTHORITY Authority reveals that the person, institution or agency responsible for the site and its qualifications and knowledge. </p><p>Is it clear who developed the site?
