With the introduction of World Wide Web, users are able to connect and interact with each other anywhere in this world easily. However, elderly users may not be familiar with these technologies, some are even unable to cope with the rapid changes of World Wide Web. In fact, they are slow and unfamiliar with the latest trends and technology. This paper aims at addressing the problem of the gap between elderly users and the rapid changes of Internet Technologies. We use different techniques of user centred design in order to abstract design requirement for elderly users. These techniques help to gather the necessary user requirements from the elderly users. We apply these techniques to a simple case study - Web Site Design. We develop a combination of low-fidelity prototype and high-fidelity prototype to get the different perspectives of the elderly users for establishing usability requirement.
