Designing Usable Web and Mobile Interfaces for Older Adults
Principal Investigator: Khaled Hassanein
Co-Applicant: Milena Head
As the population ages and older adults increasingly use web and mobile interfaces, web usability for older users is becoming increasingly relevant.
This study aims to discover the impact of various web and mobile navigation system elements on the performance of this substantial and growing group of users.
In particular, this research will result in web usability guidelines for navigation design which reduce the perceived disorientation experienced by older users, thereby improving their performance and satisfaction with the interface.
