This webinar is based on a workshop that was presented at the 2016 Aging in America Conference.

Most senior service organizations want to provide a senior-friendly website. Yet few have an in-depth understanding of web usability issues for older adults. Few organizations understand the impact of a sub-optimal web experience on the elders they serve or on their business activities. In this web seminar, we will share insights based on our experience developing web technology for seniors and senior service organizations. We will discuss market research on website usability challenges facing older adults. We will enumerate techniques and tools organizations can use to make their websites more usable for seniors. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the key usability issues for seniors on the web;
  • Discuss techniques and technology for creating more senior-friendly websites; and,
  • Understand how the to measure the impacts of more senior-friendly websites.
