About this course

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of user interface personalization in the context of web sites and web applications.

You will learn how user interface (UI) personalization can enable web pages to adapt to a diversity of needs, especially the needs of people with disabilities. The course will explain the difference between adaptable and adaptive user interfaces, and why adaptable user interfaces have been only moderately successful.

You will receive an introduction to the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) framework and its infrastructure of automatically adapting a user interface to a user’s needs and preferences.
