Current Issues in Assessing and Improving Information Usability (Invited SIG of the UX Community)
- SIG Meeting
Contribution & Benefit: This SIG will help UX practitioners and educators create and/or research more effectively a wide variety of information, including user assistance, blogs, menus, onscreen messaging, and website content.
Abstract » The usability of information is vital to successful websites, products, and services. Managers and developers often recognize the role of information or content in overall product usability, but miss opportunities to improve information usability as part of the product-development effort. This meeting is an annual forum on human factors of information design, in which we discuss issues selected by the group from the facilitators’ list of topics, augmented by attendees’ suggestions.
