Cordelia has over ten years of experience with web design and implementation. From 1996 to 1999 she served as the first Webmaster at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and got to witness the growing pains of the graphical web browser first hand.
She then spent a year as a Senior Instructional Designer working with a team of specialists to produce interactive distance-learning courseware for delivery over the WWW and via CD-ROM. Since then, she has returned to the University of Illinois and is passionate about Usability. Spreading the word about the benefits of Usability Testing in website design is a favorite endeavor and she loves nothing more than to see it pay off in the creation of beautiful and functional websites.
