Thank you to everyone who participated inWorld Usability Day 2016 - Sustainable [Green] UX
Mark your calendars for November 9, 2017 our next World Usability Day.
A theme will be posted here shortly.
World Usability Day 2016 was a huge success. Thank you to all our volunteers.
World Usability Day is single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use. It is about celebration and education – celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better. It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and that human error is a misnomer
No-one should have to suffer through products and services that get in their way. People should not be made to feel stupid by technology.
WUD on Earth
Just as Earth Day celebrates and brings awareness to a better, more sustainable world, World Usability Day celebrates successful user experience, bringing awareness to holistic solutions to create a better world.
A usable product not only incorporates the end user but also the overarching product lifecycle, including what happens to a piece of technology when a person no longers uses it. Designing with the earth in mind creates a multifaceted client base. When a team designs a product, they should incorporate how the product can compliment, not harm our planet earth. Sustainablity should be a key element of a successful user experience.
