Human-Computer Interaction teaches the fundamental issues that underlie the creation and evaluation of usable and useful computational artifacts. Over the term, students will learn how to design novel computational artifacts that enable a well-defined user group to achieve specific goals more effectively than via current means. More specifically, students will learn and directly apply:

  • Rapid ethnography and contextual design techniques to identify a well-defined user group's needs
  • Rapid, user-centered design techniques, including low-fidelity, high-iteration prototyping practices (e.g., paper-based prototyping and Wizard-of-Oz studies)
  • Evaluation methods for measuring how a design compares to existing methods of accomplishing a task.

Some re-arrangement of topics and due dates for Parts 2 and 3 of the project have occurred. Please check the Progress page.
