Accessibility and user experience

Information Technology and Communication Sciences        1 ECTS



The module introduces the very basics of user experience evaluation in the context of human-technology interaction. These are described through concrete evaluation cases, that demonstrate how special characteristics of certain user groups may affect, and need to be taken into account in, the evaluation design. The examples consist of field studies conducted with special user groups, such as individuals with developmental disabilities, visually impaired users, physically disabled users, and children.


After completing the module, the student will  be aware of the most basic techniques employed to evaluate interactive applications, be aware that not all methods are suitable as such to be used with different kinds of user groups  and  be able to consider items requiring extra attention when designing accessible user experience evaluations.
