Folks who gather and share research using Morae, I'd love to hear how long it took you to get comfortable using the software efficiently.
A potential employer has asked me to estimate how long it would take me to ramp up to a high level of competence in Morae - the position they're hiring for is responsible for most of the usability testing in the group, so I'm hoping to come up with an estimate how quickly I could reach a high level of competency with the software. I tend to be a decently quick study on new software, but I haven't had an opportunity to work with eye tracking software yet; I'd be starting from scratch.
It would be especially helpful to know:
- How long did it take you to use Morae efficiently for testing and for presenting findings?
- How would you characterize Morae's learning curve? Are there a lot of moving pieces to learn up front that cover most of the program's functions, or is it more of a quick start on the basics with big jumps in knowledge needed later as complex projects arise?
- If you've taught others to use Morae what challenges did you discover in that process?
- How would you characterize the relative functionality of Tobii and Morae, for folks who've used both systems?
Thanks in advance for your guidance. As a long-time lurker on these threads I've picked up invaluable perspective here. I appreciate your time on this question as I get deeper into beautiful data-collection nerd-com.
