LUX - a creature from far-far-away?
A workshop on User Experience, Accessibility and Usability in Learning
across Multiple Devices
@ ICALT 2012, Rome July 4-6

Deadline 13 February

More information at:

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from different
areas of research with different approaches to User Experience in learning.
Engineers talk about Quality of Experience (QoE), psychologists debate
funology and flow experiences, web developers discuss User Experience (UX).
However all these fall short, as they do not include other aspects heavily
impacting on UX, for example usability, technical environment or web
accessibility. Additionally, mobile and touch screen devices are becoming
increasingly prominent in technology enhanced learning. These devices raise
additional challenges in the area of UX. Making learning for all come true,
web accessibility and the guidelines in their current version of WCAG 2.0
expand the issue further. Research shows that mobile users have similar
needs as people with disabilities. Aspects of all these issues have been
studied, but rarely in combination, although they will impact on the
experience of the learner as a whole. The workshop wants to encourage a
holistic discussion and we hope to find some answers for the following

    Where do we go from here?
    What happens when we combine all these aspects of Learner User
    How will this change learning and how can technology support this?

The target audience for the workshop are researchers working in the areas
of Quality of Experience, psychology, user experience, usability,
accessibility or a mix of those in a learning context, researchers who have
something to say and ask questions about learning across multiple devices
and who are bold enough to create a visionary design.

I hope many will find the topic interesting, the venue is definitely worth
a trip, our committee is an interesting mix of people representing the
different areas and the workshop itself has a very interactive format:
fishbowl discussion & UX cafe in world cafe format.

Hope to see many of you on the submission list and in Rome :)

Thanks & best regards
