Oak Brook Terrace, IL, United States, 2009/10/05 - The Usability Marathon, a series of webinars in usability and user experience (UX), opens on Monday, October 12, 2009 and goes through Wednesday, October 21, 2009.
It is organized for the second time by UIDesign Group (Moscow, Russia), however, this year the event will be held solely online. All webinars will be in English and free of charge to attendees to listen and participate in.
Last year UIDesign Group (uidesign.ru) decided to organize an educational event for Russian usability and UX experts, interaction designers, and people from related areas since most industry events take place abroad, making it harder for Russian participants to attend regularly. Thus, several distinguished experts were invited to Moscow in order to host practical workshops in usability testing and interaction design. It turned out to be a very live event, which was the inspiration to arrange it again this year.
The Usability Marathon 2009 will consist of a series of free online webinars. The webinars are scheduled according to Moscow time; however the online format enables participants from all over the world to attend.
Each guest speaker is an exceedingly experienced international professional from countries including the United States, Germany, Australia, and China. They are leaders in user experience, usability research and interaction design, authors of popular books and publications, participants in the largest conferences, or chief consultants and directors of UX companies.
The Marathon audience is both experienced and novice usability and UX specialists, interaction designers, developers, project managers, UX team leaders and managers of companies developing digital products and services.
Registration for the webinars is now open at the event’s website.
