Book News Annotation:

It's been five years since publication of the first edition, and there's no doubt that changes since then have been profound. Eight new topics are incorporated in chapters on information design for collaboration, online portals, international accessibility standards, analysis and modeling of user activity, mobile user interfaces, online games, and the use of avatars for educational and organizational learning. The handbook contains a total of 37 chapters discussing what web designers must consider as they try to organize and present information in a manner that works smoothly for users. Accomplishing optimal design requires an understanding of online consumer behavior as well as technical issues, task analysis and performance modeling as well as security and privacy issues in various contexts, among other topics. The presentations include data in numerous tables as well as 250 screen-shot illustrations. Editor Kim-Phuong L. Vu is affiliated with the psychology department at California State U., Long Beach; Robert W. Proctor, with the psychology department at Purdue U., Indiana.
