Class description:This is an introductory course to the field of Human-Computer Interaction. It concentrates on the effectiveness and efficiency of computer technology from the user's point of view. While we will present basic human factor results and develop some technology to build interfaces, the focus is on user experience.
In this course, we look at the complete life cycle of interface
development. Following a standard pattern of product development, we will
discuss key aspects of the design process including: the Analysis of
users needs, the formalization of these needs (Definition), the
exploration of possible solutions to address these needs (Ideation),
the evaluation of the potential of these solutions (Idea Evaluation), the Implementation
of prototypes and their Evaluation.
