Anyone conducting usability testing (e.g. watching users navigate a software product and taking notes) using Open Source tools?
I saw an interesting description of using OBS Studio + infowriter plugin (cross platform) + nohboard plugin (windows only), which allows watching a user from multiple cameras, recording their key presses, and easily storing events with timestamps at given times (like flagging a problem or success). I believe it should work both locally (looking over the user’s shoulder, recording for reference), as well as remotely (giving instructions and streaming + recording the results).
That stack is all Open Source. See: https://www.quora.com/Are-there-any-open-source-usability-testing-tools/answer/Brad-Jensen-14
I tested it locally without the plugins and it was easy to use. I’d be interested to hear if others have used this.
