Autodesk China presents: World Usability Day 2011

World Usability Day

World Usability Day

World Usability Day was founded in 2005 as an initiative of the Usability Professionals’ Association (UPA) to ensure that services and products important to human life are easier to access and simpler to use. Each year, on the second Thursday of November, over 200 events are organized in over 43 countries around the world to raise awareness for the general public, and train professionals in the tools and issues central to good usability research, development and practice

In 2011 we will focus outwardly on how our organizations, our cultures, and our world impact usability.

We will explore and celebrate:

  • Designing with an intentional outcome of sparking change in how people behave, communicate, and do things in the world; and
  • Examining the concept of cultures and how culture impacts usability
