NCI to participate in User Experience Workshop at I-HCI 2009
September 2, 2009
My colleague Dr Stephan Weibelzahl and I are pleased to be part of the upcoming usability workshop entitled ‘Experience, Usability, and Functionality: Exploring the components of interaction. This workshop is organised by Dr Jurek Kirakowski from UCC and his colleagues and will form part of two day HCI conference 17-18th September in Trinity College, Dublin.
The aim of this workshop is to discuss McNamara and Kirakowski’s (2007) recently proposed three factor model for understanding and describing the interactions between humans and technology. They contend there are three areas of importance when exploring this relationship: experience, usability and functionality.
During this workshop we will be presenting our first experience of usability testing and will discuss how any of lessons we learned might relate to this model. In particular, we are interested in exploring how and what subjective measures of ‘user experience’ might relate to e-learning.
Register on-line for the conference.
