LV-Beschreibung

Lehrmethodik

Lectures, practical assignments, discussions and presentations.

Inhalt/e

This class supplies an introduction to human centered computing and human centered design. That is, how do we design digital artefacts that are easy, efficient and pleasurable to use – or interact with? A good knowledge about the human user and the perceptual and cognitive characteristics of people is key. The overriding aim with this course is to provide this knowledge.

Themen

  • In this class we will cover the following topics (some more thoroughly than others):
  • - Human Centered Computing/Design (definitions, foundations, holistic view)
  • - Usability
  • - The human user (sensory system, memory system)
  • - Interaction with everyday things
  • - Characteristics of interaction
  • - Interaction frameworks
  • - The design process
  • - Design guidelines & principles

Lehrziel

By the end of this course, students should: - have acquired a broad understanding of the field of human centered computing/design - have acquired a basic knowledge of the human aspects most relevant to design - have extended their vocabulary with the relevant domain-specific vocabulary - understand how to ground designs in reality

Erwartete Vorkenntnisse

None.
