Human Computer Interaction

  • College Of Computing & Information Technology |


This course focuses on the interaction between computer systems and people who use them, introducing the analysis and design techniques that can improve the quality of interaction. Topics include design and evaluation of user interfaces, cognitive and social dynamics factors that affect usability, and software architecture considerations. While the emphasis is on conventional graphical and web-based user interfaces, alternative interface devices and technologies are also discussed. Design guidelines, evaluation methods, participatory design, communication between users and system developers.
