Announcing World Usability Day 2008 Events at the University of Minnesota

"Making Life Easy"

The Office of Information Technology and the Digital Technology Center are sponsoring a free program of events on Thursday November 13th for World Usability Day. The purpose of the program is to promote awareness of the benefits of usability engineering and user-centered design. World Usability Day was started in 2005 by the Usability Professionals Association and involves 36 hours of usability-related activities around the world in 41 countries.

You are invited to join us for a program including speakers and discussions on usability and accessibility topics, an Adaptive Technology Fair, a participatory activity on signage and way-finding, and an Open House at the Usability Services Laboratory.

All students, staff, faculty, and the general public are invited to the World Usability Day events. Events will take place in Walter Library on the East Bank of the Minneapolis campus. All events are free of charge and no registration is necessary.
