Attila Bekkvik Szentirmai is an Assistant Professor and Ph.D. research fellow at the Department of Design at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
His current research focus is Universal Design of ICT, Human-Computer Interaction, and the novel implementation, design, and development of Augmented Reality concerning e-Learning and e-Health applications.
The impact, possibilities, and challenges in utilising Universal Design in Educational Augmented Reality Application design, evaluation, and development.
Talk Description :
Under current Norwegian legislation, all digital educational materials must be universally designed. The practice of Universal Design (UD) promises to deliver the best possible solution to the broadest audiences, including users with special needs, without the need for adaptation or often stigmatizing special equipment.
However, the evaluation, design, and development of Augmented Learning materials are currently in a gray zone.
During this talk, I would like to discuss
1) Universal Design,
2) How Universal Design can benefit AR’s mainstream adaptation, and
3) share my research and design method utilizing universal design as a design practice.
I would close the talk with
4) sharing my findings and discussing future work needed to deliver AR for all.
