Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this thesis issues regarding hierarchical navigation structures on mobile websites have been investigated with focus on usability. The goal has been to provide a complementary basis for hierarchical mobile navigation development.
Two mobile website prototypes with the same hierarchical structured content, but with different types of navigation solutions, were developed and tested on test persons. Due to a relatively low amountof test persons, the tests purpose was to provide qualitative information regarding the issue of hierarchal mobile navigation, which then could be discussed and analysed.
The results of the thesis points to relevant usability issues that can arise if hierarchical structure is used on mobile websites, and explains aspects to considerate during the development of such sites.
