"Usability for the Web and Beyond" METRO workshop Dec 17th (New York, NY)

On Friday, December 17th, join us at METRO for our last workshop of the season, “Usability for the Web and Beyond”. Instructor David Walczyk will take a look at usability concepts that you can apply to both your professional and everyday lives.

This hands-on class provides students with a unified method for accessing the usability of digital information. While specific attention will be given to the usability of information on the web, the principles covered will apply to other media as well. The capacity to transfer usability skills (both thinking and doing) to your everyday life in general and your career in particular are our top priorities. Topics covered will include cognitive usability, affective usability, interaction usability, and visual design usability. The process for constructing a formal usability test and dealing with usability contractors will also be discussed.

This program will take place on Friday, December 17th from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at METRO: 57 East 11th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003.

Registration fees: $40 members; $35 myMETRO; $60 non-members
