This course introduces the basics of human-computer interaction and user-centered design. It will both teach the theoretical background and foundations but also involve a class project where students have to design their own product or software.

Upon completion, students will be able to

  • Understand the different types of computing devices and user interfaces and how their design impacts human-computer interaction
  • Understand models of human characteristics that impact and inform the design of usable interactive systems
  • Understand user-centered design methodologies and usability engineering techniques
  • Gather and specify user characteristics, tasks, context of use as well as usability goals
  • Understand design knowledge and best-practices and how these can be used effectively to support interaction design
  • Develop low and high fidelity prototypes including storyboards, software and paper prototypes
  • Plan and conduct usability tests with end-users before, during and after software development and deployment
  • Explore new challenges in human computer interaction such as universal design and accessibility as well as adaptability and context-aware applications
