Published in:Proceedings of MOBILE HCI 2015: 17th ACM International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices and Services, ACM Press, New York, August 2015, pp. 878-882.
Abstract:Mobile apps are a very promising tool to promote
healthy and safe attitudes and behaviors in users, and
their number is rapidly growing in app stores. However,
to create effective and successful mobile apps in the
health and safety domains, we need to build bridges
between Mobile HCI and other areas such as persuasive
technology and health psychology. This tutorial will
focus on principles and theories that must be taken into
account in designing persuasive mobile apps for health
and safety promotion, and on how to rigorously extend
Mobile HCI evaluation methods to measure the
effectiveness of such apps.
