Topic: The Future of Usability
When: 12:30-1:20 pm, Friday, March 12, 2010
Where: Loew Hall, room 216
Abstract: Computing, information, and communication technologies are changing rapidly and new products appear every day, designed to serve increasingly diverse audience niches, technology platforms, and contexts of use. In this turbulent, short-fuse development world, how can questions of usability best be addressed? What tools and techniques are emerging to help us design usable products? How can we best keep user needs and desires in the forefront of design thinking? In this talk, Rosenbaum looks at the problem from the design, development, and organizational perspective.
