Interaction Design

Course Description

The course continues on the Human-Computer Interaction course, addressing the more advanced procedures of modeling, designing and evaluating interactive products with respect to enhancing user experience. Through hands-on independent work, students will gain insight into these procedures by developing an interactive product within the context of multi-modal interaction and a post-WIMP interface.

Learning Outcomes

  1. synthesize and apply a methodology for designing interactions on WIMP and post-WIMP interfaces
  2. model the targeted users for whom an interaction is designed
  3. create and integrate a multimodal interaction on WIMP and post-WIMP interfaces
  4. develop both conceptual and physical design for the targeted interactive product on WIMP and post-WIMP interfaces
  5. iteratively develop an interactive product based on prototyping
  6. evaluate an interactive product using measurements and/or analytical evaluation
