Details:

As increasingly organisations are taking the "digital by default" approach to the provision of their services to the public, we all are becoming dependent on digital services in our daily lives. When designing and implementing a digital service, the service provider must ensure that no group of users is put at a disadvantage. Using first-hand examples of the communities at risk of being excluded, from both "bottom of the pyramid" and "disabled" communities, Tim Murdoch will give an overview of the inclusive digital service design.
