mLearning For Veterans: Designing For Diverse Audiences And Accessibility

A session at User Focus 2012

Friday 19th October, 2012

10:35pm to 11:05pm (EST)

Mobile apps are an amazing and popular way to make information available to the masses. For American Veterans looking for jobs after leaving the military, apps can make career-related information accessible. But are they truly accessible? Veterans have enough to deal with between physical and psychological injuries, translating military experience into civilian terminology, reentering society, and changing careers. A useful career-related mobile app must use excellent user-centered design and interaction techniques to be accessible, not just useful, to Veterans. Come discover how we developed an app that is useful and reusable, accessible, and scalable for our very geographically and technologically diverse audience!
