LV-Beschreibung

Lehrmethodik

Lectures, practical assignments, discussions and presentations.

Inhalt/e

This class is split in two parts. The first part provides an introduction to human centered computing (HCC) and human centered design (HCD) with a focus on the ultimate goal thereof: to build digital artifacts that are easy, efficient and pleasurable to work – or interact – with. In the second part we will focus on the user-centered design process and discuss and practice the methods used to achieve the ultimate goal of HCC/HCD.

Themen

  • – Introduction to Human Centered Computing/Design
  • – Usability
  • – The user-centered design process and its methods

Lehrziel

By the end of this class, students should have: – acquired a broad understanding of HCC/HCD – acquired a good knowledge about the user-centered design process – acquired practical skills in applying a selected sub-set of the methods used in the user-centered design process – have extended their vocabulary with the relevant domain-specific vocabulary

Erwartete Vorkenntnisse

None.

Literatur

Most introductory books on Human-Computer interaction, interactive systems, usability, interface design, etc. include the basics we will cover early on in the class, as well as some of the methods we will explore later on. Below is a list (in random order) of some suitable books. The list could easily be extended. The university library has a good collection, including many of the listed books. I also have several books on the topics that I’m happy to lend you. – Nielsen, J.: Usability Engineering. Morgan Kaufmann. – Leventhal, L. & Barnes, J.: Usability Engineering: Process, Products, and Examples.
