- Course objectives
- The course deals with basics of human-computer interaction . It is focused on psychological and physiological aspects of interface design, graphical user interface design and its usability assessment. Students should be able to evaluate existing screen designs and to develop human-copmuter interfaces with respect to a usability.
- Introduction to human computer interaction. Task-Centered System Design.
- High level models of H-C behaviour.
- User Centered Design and Prototyping.
- Evaluating interfaces with Users.
- Evaluation - Controlled Experiments.
- Design of everyday things, concepts, useful designs.
- Representations, visual variables, metaphors and direct manipulation.
- Evaluation based on Cognitive Models.
- Graphical screen design
- Physical User Interfaces
- Interactive Tools and Techniques in Virtual Environment.
