Student Accessibility Services Presents: World Usability Day at UMaine

November 9, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The University of Maine joins with organizations across the globe to learn, share, and celebrate user-friendly educational practices, products, and services. We advocate putting people at the center of design, beginning with their needs and wants, so that education and educational technology is affordable, available and usable by all teachers, students and parents. Usability, accessibility and assistive technology allow persons of all abilities to engage in learning, employment and enjoying life to the fullest.

World Usability Day UMaine will include events to engage faculty, staff, and students for a day of learning, professional development and networking.

We invite all faculty and staff to join us for an open discussion and Q&A about accessibility at UMaine.
