Timeframe

Description

The students will get a comprehensive overview of aims and research topics in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. They will achieve a basical understanding of developing interactive products while taking user and task requirements in account. Aim of this development process is the design of usable products, that enhance the joy of use. Therefore, basic design principals, methods and tools are presented and intensified in practical exercises. Because of the course's character as basic course only an overview can be given of the comprehensive and strong interdisciplinary field of Human-Computer Interaction (connected to computer science, design, psychology, ergonomics, education science etc.). Interested students get the possibility to intensify their studies by visiting continuative courses like Usability Engineering 1 and 2 or Visual Seeking Systems.
