International Workshop on Enabling User Experience with future Interactive
Learning Systems (UXFUL 2010)

held in conjunction with USAB 2010: HCI in Work & Learning, Life & Leisure
4 & 5 November 2010
Klagenfurt, Austria

*** Extended Deadline: July 6, 2010 ***

Standard Information Systems for learning purposes have matured, technology
is stable and masses of information can be made available to the learner.
Most educational institutions are already using such learning systems either
in a blended or purely online form for delivering parts of courses or fully
online courses to their students. 

Besides such formal learning systems, we are surrounded by multimodal
interfaces which enable the inclusion of all human senses, and mobile,
ubiquitous and pervasive technology is available everywhere and at all time.
Current research deals with using such new technologies for the purpose of
learning, integrating them in current learning systems, and building
learning environments where students are provided with more authentic
learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Furthermore,
new technologies allow students to interact with the learning environment in
more natural and intuitive ways, using multimodal and smart interfaces from
various types of devices ranging from mobile phones to smart boards.

The focus of this special workshop is on the provision of enhanced user
experience (UX), including making information more useful, usable and
enjoyable. This is a challenge for interdisciplinary research on the
intersection of Psychology and Computer Science.

This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners from
Psychology and Computer Science, bridging classic Human-Computer Interaction
research (HCI) with Usability Engineering (UE), aiming at bringing clear
benefits for learners!
