2018 17th International Conference on Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training (ITHET)

The convergence of current technologies provides the infrastructure for transmitting and storing information faster and cheaper. For information to be used in gaining knowledge, however, environments for collecting, storing, disseminating, sharing and constructing knowledge are needed. Such environments, knowledge media, brings together telecommunication, computer and networking technologies, learning theories and cognitive sciences to form meaningful environments that provides for a variety of learner needs. ITHET 2018 will continue with the traditional themes of previous events. However, our special theme for this year is a fundamental one. We have previously had MOOCs as our special theme, but now they are just infrastructure. Even “Blended Learning” is what we all do anyway. In a time of the unprecedented access to knowledge through IT, it is time for us to revisit the fundamental purpose of our educational system. It is certainly not about knowledge anymore.

  • Universal Usability: Past, Present, and Future

    Computers are used all over the world in a variety of contexts by users with all levels of technical experience. This includes users such as kindergarteners, older users, people with various impairments, people who are busy doing other tasks (such as driving a car), and users with differing levels of education, literacy, and socio-economic means. The concept of computer interfaces that will be easy to use, for all of these users, in all of these different situations, is known as universal usability. Making progress towards this goal requires innovations in techniques for gathering and understanding requirements; designing and developing interfaces; evaluation and assessment; standards practices; and public policy, and much work in this field remains to be done. This survey presents an overview of universal usability as it currently exists in the human-computer interaction literature, and presents some future directions for work in universal usability.

  • USABILITY: Stereotypes and Traps

    In very few years, the term usability has degenerated into a stereotype: “draft tested in a usability lab.” Although such testing is an important part of usabe documentation, it is not necessarily the essential part. Moreover, usability testing, as currently described in the professional literature, is powerless to eliminate the most intractable problems of user documentation: failures of analysis and design. There are two main flaws in the current stereotype. First, it is wrong to believe that usability can be substantially enhanced after the draft is complete; the most resistant and elusive usability flaws in a publication a rebuilt into a draft and are not likely to be ameliorated by after-the-fact testing. The second flaw is that usability testing of manuals seems prone to the same mistakes as the testing of program code: the “unit test” fallacy (failure to test interfaces); tester biases; and others. This paper argues that after-the-fact usability tests are best regarded as merely a late stage in a formal process that engineers usability into a library of information products before-the-fact.

  • User-Centered Agile Methods

    With the introduction and popularization of Agile methods of software development, existing relationships and working agreements between user experience groups and developers are being disrupted. Agile methods introduce new concepts: the Product Owner, the Customer (but not the user), short iterations, User Stories. Where do UX professionals fit in this new world? Agile methods also bring a new mindset -- no big design, no specifications, minimal planning -- which conflict with the needs of UX design. This lecture discusses the key elements of Agile for the UX community and describes strategies UX people can use to contribute effectively in an Agile team, overcome key weaknesses in Agile methods as typically implemented, and produce a more robust process and more successful designs. We present a process combining the best practices of Contextual Design, a leading approach to user- centered design, with those of Agile development.
