Tutorial 2: Human factors in the design and testing of hypermedia-based interfaces

Instructor: Andy Dillon

Time: Saturday, June 3 (full day)


The user interface to any application determines the usability of the application. Poorly designed interfaces lead to increased user error, lower user efficiency and decreased user satisfaction. The present tutorial will provide attendees with data on the empirical findings on usability for hypermedia and web-based interfaces. As well as covering what is known, the tutorial will also examine how to determine usability for new interfaces through the design of reliable and valid usability tests.
