May 12: Learnability

with Chauncey Wilson of Autodesk

Join us on Tuesday, May 12, in a joint session with Boston CHI for this special presentation by usability guru Chauncey Wilson. 

Learnability is an important aspect of usability, yet there is little agreement on exactly what learnability is, how to measure it, and the guidelines and principles that design teams should follow to make products and services easy to learn. Learn about the many faces of learnability, and join in a practical discussion of principles, guidelines, and patterns that can be applied to support learnability that focus on both user interface and learning content.

Interchange Was a Success!

On March 27-28, 2015, an energetic group of Technical Communication professionals gathered to network, share knowledge, and grow their careers by learning about new trends, technologies, and soft skills. We were filled to capacity!

Many thanks to the organizers, speakers, and attendees for making the event a great success. We look forward to an even larger conference next year!
