Our User Experience Focus

Accessibility and Usability focuses on the expectations and needs of all users in the planning, design, development, and implementation of  information, products, and services at MIT. Understanding users and their needs is integral to optimizing the user experience.  We are part of the Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming (UAAP) under the Dean for Undergraduate Education.

Usability, Accessibility, Assistive Technology

Usability is the measure of how well users can learn and use a product to achieve their goals and how satisfied they are with that process

Accessibility is the inclusive practice of making products and services usable by people of all abilities and disabilities.

Assistive Technology is designed to bridge access for persons with disabilities.
