World Usability Day

We are organizing an event (together with UP) regarding usability. It’s a worldwide event created to help everyone know more about the ways to help create a better user experience. The date is Nov 3 but the Manila leg would do it on Nov 10 (at UP) and Nov 11 here at La Salle 2:30-5pm at Gokongwei Bldg, Intellect Seminar Room.

We originally targeted a small audience (about 20 – 30) but Dr Caslon Chua of College of Computer Science (CCS) will be fielding in 2 sets of class so we accommodated it. Another set of Class from Jazmin Chong of Industrial Engineering (IE) will also be attending. Webmasters from the Department of Health and a speaker from UP will be there.

For World Usability Day in Manila, we offer basic usability training for students that covers applications and usability testing.

The event is targeted for graduating students who would be working as software/web developers in the near future.

It aims to give students an idea and increase awareness about the importance of usability in design.

Our contact person for UP is Regnard Raquedan, President of MMMUG (MetroManila Macromedia Usergroup) and contact person of the World Usability Day Org. He is also one of the speakers. Another speaker will be Leo Valdes (video only) who is the Philippine govt’s consultant on web accessibility and usability. I will be speaking on web Standards and web Usability to complement Mr. Valdes’ video.
