Description & Coverage
Description:

As interactive hypermedia systems take an increasingly prevalent role in the workplace, at home and on the web, their usability becomes vitally important to meeting the expectations of users and fulfilling the promise integrating technology into daily life.

Quality and Communicability for Interactive Hypermedia Systems: Concepts and Practices for Design explores ways to overcome obstacles to successful communication from theories of communicability to the various levels of design and integration. With a heuristic focus on how current system design affects user understanding, this reference source goes beyond simple usability and fills an important gap in present research by illustrating the importance of communicability in modern technological advancements.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Accessibility and Usability
  • Aspect Mining
  • Communicability
  • E-Governance
  • Educational Simulations
  • Intelligent agents
  • Interactive Systems
  • User Participation and Collaboration
  • Virtual Object Lessons
  • Web 2.0
Reviews and Testimonials

The strength of the book is the consistent organisation of chapters and the presence of rich referencing sources for each topic.
