Human-Computer Interaction

2019-2020

Course Objective

Students will learn:

1) the fundamental concepts of human-computer interaction and
user-centered design through lectures and practical sessions. (Knowledge
and understanding) (Applying knowledge and understanding)

2) to evaluate and design usable and effective graphical user interfaces
for interactive systems. (Making judgements) (Communication)

Course Content

The lectures in this course will discuss and present examples of
concepts and methods in the field of human-computer interaction. The
course will outline general usability challenges associated with
existing case studies. It will also cover in detail the most important
methods used in requirements gathering, iterative testing of interfaces,
and summative evaluation phases of the user-centered design process. In
practicums, students will be able to practice the use of relevant
methods within the context of the case study systems. Some of the topics
covered in the course are: User Needs Analysis, Conceptual Design,
Mockups and Prototypes, Usability Evaluation of Prototypes.

Teaching Methods

Lectures, practice sessions.

Method of Assessment

The final grade is composed of the several sub-assessments, most
importantly:
- course assignments (group and individual);
- exam (individual).

The final grade will be calculated based on the assignment grades and
the exam grade (FINAL GRADE = 0.5 ASSINMENTS + 0.5 EXAM). To pass the
course, students need to pass both parts (Grade >=5,5).
