    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assignment for an undergraduate course asks students to go beyond evaluating digital content with criteria provided by someone else. Here, they must develop their own “collection of customized usability and accessibility testing steps and procedures,” or “protocols,” to be used for such evaluation. Allison Hitt asks students to consult Steve Krug’s Don’t Make Me Think, Revisited when creating their usability testing protocol and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines from the World Wide Web Consortium when creating their accessibility testing protocol. As a result, Hitt requires students to think critically about the impact of design choices that go into creating digital content as well as the technical standards that govern such content’s code and markup.
