Remote moderated testing

There are times when remote testing is the best way to capture data depending on budget, geography, or participant access.

Observe research live via any number of remote-viewing platforms. Remote testing works well for usability testing of websites and mobile applications, exploratory interviews, and investigating current practices when paired with digital ethnography. This approach is also useful if the target group is spread across large geographies. Higher sample sizes are also easier to achieve due to cost-effectiveness.
