Abstract

This paper describes the development of the “Usability and Accessibility” course for M.Sc. students at the IT University of Copenhagen. The aim is to examine whether this course provides an effective and useful method for raising the issues around Universal Access with the designers of the future. This paper examines the results and conclusions from the students over 5 semesters of this course and provides an overview of the success of the different design and evaluation methods. The paper concludes with a discussion of the effectiveness of each of the specific methods, techniques and tools used in the course, both from design and education perspectives.
