About «Human-Computer Interaction»
This website is desgined to serve as a first course in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in computer science curriculum. Besides the basic concepts of HCI, different testing techniques in user experience design are also introduced.
In no way this website must be considered as a complete self-learning course. The aim of this website is to help to teach a classroom course. However, it is possible to use it as a guide for self-learning, but with a great effort.
Topics covered include: history of HCI, basics of HCI, card sorting, information and interaction diagram, prototyping, levels of prototyping, paper prototyping, and testing paper prototypes.
You should expect to spend approximately 30 hours on this course when delivered face-to-face. If you want to use this course as a self-learning course, the duration should be at least twice, you will need to look for additional information to supplement what is not explained in these pages.
- To explain students the basics of HCI.
- To show students the importance of prototyping.
- To demostrate students how to design better user interfaces.
- To show students some tools that can help them to design user interfaces.
You must have some background in software development, such as software development activities (analysis, planning, designing, implementation, testing, deployment, maintenance, and documenting) and modeling techniques, such as flowchart.
