BUILDING USABILITY IN INDIA: REFLECTIONS FROM THE INDO EUROPEAN SYSTEMS USABILITY PARTNERSHIP
2005 (English)In: People and Computers XIX: The Bigger Picture, 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we address the big picture of developing HCI in a global context. We focus on India, one of the world’s most populated countries, with a growing international IT industry yet limited internationally recognized HCI expertise. We report and reflect on the activities of the Indo European Systems Usability Partnership, an EU funded project linking the British HCI Group with the Computer Society of India and supported by three European universities. We focus on the themes of interaction design and user centred systems design and their place within India and the Indian software industry. We conclude with our views of what is needed next for HCI in India and on global HCI from an Asian perspective.
