Human Computer Interaction
This course covers the principles of human-computer interaction and the design and evaluation of user interfaces.
Topics include an overview of human information processing subsystems (perception, memory, attention, and problem solving); how the properties of these systems affect the design of user interfaces; the principles, guidelines, and specification languages for designing good user interfaces, with emphasis on tool kits and libraries of standard graphical user interface objects; and a variety of interface evaluation methodologies that can be used to measure the usability of software.
Other topics may include World Wide Web design principles and tools, computer-supported cooperative work, multimodal and "next generation" interfaces, speech and natural language interfaces, and virtual reality interfaces. Course work includes both the creation and implementation of original user interface designs, and the evaluation of user interfaces created by others.Selengkapnya »
