Come learn about The Research-Based Usability Guidelines book, an authoritative resource on web design and usability that contains nearly 200 guidelines based on the latest industry research. It’s become the "bible" for government web managers, to guide them in their daily work. Experts from across government, industry, and academia have reviewed and contributed to the book, based on peer review of hundreds of studies and research reports on web users and user behavior. The Guidelines book, published jointly by the Department of Health and Human Services and the General Services Administration, was updated this year to reflect the most recent research. In this presentation, we’ll review some of the most important guidelines, discuss changes reflected in the 2006 edition, and review how the latest research affects how we design and manage our government websites. We’ll also focus on strategies that you can use at your agencies to implement the new guidelines.
