Digital Doorway Usability and Accessability Evaluation Project

 Digital Doorway Usability and Accessability Evaluation Project

During 2008 MEKE (then HuFEE) was approached to assist with evaluating the usability and accessibility of the software installed on the Digital Doorway

Funmi Adbesin, a full-time member of MEKE, tackled this task as part of her masters studies in information systems at the University of South Afria. The project has now been completed.  A report on the outcome of the project is available here.

 

A number of peer-reviewed publications emanated from the work done on this project:
