- Course objectives
- The course deals with basics of human-computer interaction. It focuses on psychological and physiological aspects of interface design, graphical user interface design and its usability assessment.
- Learning outcomes
- After finishing the course students
- will be able to evaluate existing screen designs;
- will practise in developing human-computer interfaces with respect to a usability;
- will be able to asses the usability of SW products;
- will understand the usability issues in general;
- will gain practical knowledge of designing process based on in-depth understanding of high and low-level models of human-computer interaction.
- Introduction to human-computer interaction. Task-centred system design.
- High level models of human-computer behaviour.
- User-centred design and prototyping.
- Evaluating interfaces with users.
- Evaluation - controlled experiments.
- Design of everyday things.
- Representations, visual variables, metaphors and direct manipulation.
- Evaluation based on cognitive models.
- Graphical screen design
- Physical user interfaces
- Heuristic evaluation of interfaces.
- Teaching methods
- Theoretical lectures+labs. Lab work based on presentations and the mutual evaluation of several homework assignments covering the lifecycle of development of systems' interface - from scenarios to hi-fi prototypes. All students solve the same problem, solutions are individual.
- Assessment methods
- The project split in 5 HWA solved mostly in a lab using specialised software. Steps include a design of an interface for a specific purpose: from a paper prototype to complete GUI design. Every step graded with 0-10 points. Points exceeding limit 20 added as the bonus to the grading of a written exam, five questions, 90 minutes.
