Starting with the user: User Experience methods as a framework to assess and improve the usability of CC licenses
Good user experience is pivotal to the evolution and continued longevity of CC licenses, their use, and uptake by new users. This talk proposes using the broader concept of User Experience (UX) as a framework for approaching the continued development of CC tools and services, with a focus on CC licenses. Common UX methods will be introduced with a view to intentionally including a diversity of community voices to improve the way that CC licenses are explained, promoted, and applied.

For the users, by the users
The session resonates with the 2nd goal of the summit, which says "Leverage the power of the CC Network through inclusive and diverse participation: shared objectives, collaboration, and communication." The talk revolves around how the practice of crafting the user experience changes drastically when a community is involved. What a team of UX researchers and usability testers could probably miss to address sitting in isolation in a glass room, can hardly go unseen by a community.
