[presentation] Marketing and Dissemination strategies #tugraz

Today I will talk a little bit about our marketing strategies for different elearning projects at the Educate conference in Klagenfurt. Here you can find the slides:

[publication] iPhone/iPad Human Interface Design

Our workshop proposal on „iPhone/iPad Human Interface Design“ held at the 6th Symposium (USAB 2010) of the Workgroup HCI&UE of the Austrian Computer Society in Carinthia (Southern Austria) is now online. The slides are already available here and also a short video summary.

Abstract:

In this tutorial, we will present the Human Interface Guidelines for both iPhone and iPad and offer hands-on experience in designing user interfaces for these devices. We will also discuss how to integrate the guidelines in higher education and give examples from our lecture on iPhone application development. The goal of the tutorial is to provide the participants with a basic understanding of the iPhone Human Interface Guidelines and enable them to review and design iPhone apps according to the standards.

[publication] The XAOS Metric – Understanding Visual Complexity as measure of usability

Our publication about „The XAOS Metric – Understanding Visual Complexity as measure of usability“ held at the 6th Symposium (USAB 2010) of the Workgroup HCI&UE of the Austrian Computer Society in Carinthia (Southern Austria). The slides are already available here.

Abstract:

The visual complexity of an interface is a crucial factor for usability, since it influences the cognitive load and forms expectations about the subjacent software or system. In this paper we propose a novel method that uses entropy, structure and functions, to calculate the visual complexity of a website. Our method is evaluated against a well known approach of using the file size of color jpeg images for determining visual complexity. Both methods were applied on a dataset consisting of images of 30 different websites. These websites were also evaluated with a web survey. We found a strong correlation for both methods on subjective ratings of visual complexity and structure. This suggests both methods to be reliable for determination of visual complexity.
