We originally targeted a small audience (about 20 – 30) but Dr Caslon Chua of College of Computer Science (CCS) will be fielding in 2 sets of class so we accommodated it. Another set of Class from Jazmin Chong of Industrial Engineering (IE) will also be attending. Webmasters from the Department of Health and a speaker from UP will be there.
For World Usability Day in Manila, we offer basic usability training for students that covers applications and usability testing.
The event is targeted for graduating students who would be working as software/web developers in the near future.
It aims to give students an idea and increase awareness about the importance of usability in design.
Our contact person for UP is Regnard Raquedan, President of MMMUG (MetroManila Macromedia Usergroup) and contact person of the World Usability Day Org. He is also one of the speakers. Another speaker will be Leo Valdes (video only) who is the Philippine govt’s consultant on web accessibility and usability. I will be speaking on web Standards and web Usability to complement Mr. Valdes' video.
