1on1 learning model (every student has a personal device) has been widely considered as the trend for schools in near future. But what’s the right technology? We introduce the design principles based on results from comprehensive ethnographic and human factors studies in real classrooms across the world.

How can we include usability aspects in an agile development project? That was our main issue. We have tried to answer three questions. What is the stead of the usability expert in the project? How to organize his/her work? How to adapt his/her practices? We also present the results of our experimentation.

Rule-Based Prototyping of User Interfaces
for Advanced Practitioners (AP)
Elaborate user interface guidelines are of crucial importance for the design of business software since in this area the production of high numbers of homogenous and consistent screens is required. The approach presented here demonstrates how guidelines can be efficiently integrated in software prototyping and development tools.

The effects of preferred text formatting on performance and perceptual appeal

Legal researchers were tested to see whether their preferred settings for reading documents online resulted in better perceived visual appeal and performance.

Understanding organizational cultures to improve UX of Business Support System (BSS)
for Advanced Practitioners (AP)
A complicated business firm has many functional organizations. In an IT age, CEOs, CIOs, CFOs, and other officers and managers use Business Support System (abbr. to BSS) to shorten time of product to market, business internal-operation, lead to cash and assure custom satisfaction by improving service qualities. But each organization has its own value orientation and motives that these are fundamentals of organizational culture. We will show our process for identifying the user groups, and how we used that information to create the new system, and different practices in every phase.

Undreamed-of possibilities of MS Visio
for Advanced Practitioners (AP)
See what is possible: In our company an in-house developed Visio solution is used for designing user interface concepts. The Visio solution comprises shapes, templates and add-ons to visualize our concept ideas. By using Visio in this way, we generate high quality deliverables for user interface concepts – wireframes as well as click prototypes - in an efficient and effective way. Furthermore, the Visio solution contributes substantially to the implementation of our corporate design in all relevant artefacts.
