The Usability of Usability Guidelines
University of Borås, School of Business and IT.
2009 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper is challenging the usability of traditional usability guidelines. The claim is that guideline descriptions and explanations are not satisfactory. Analysis results demonstrate vagueness and are ambiguous in explanation. The aim of the paper is to propose a set of principles (meta-guidelines) to be used for improving the usability of guidelines.
