Michigan seeks volunteers to help improve websites

The Associated PressJuly 9, 2014 

— The state of Michigan is seeking volunteers to participate in usability studies to help improve the state's websites.

Yvonne Morrison, service manager of the User Experience and Quality Assurance team, says in a statement that the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget is looking for "all types of users," from experts to inexperienced ones.

Anyone 18 years of age or older who is interested in taking part in a usability study may fill out an online participant questionnaire. As the need for testers arises, state employees plan to contact people who have completed the questionnaire.

Some tests may be done from home, while others require visiting the Usability Lab in Lansing. The state says it's a way people can help government improve its websites and applications.
