Module Description, Aims and Objectives:
Module Description, Aims and Objectives: This
course is designed to train the computer science student in
how to apply the theories of HCI to the task of design. It
surveys the techniques available in the discipline,
demonstrates where and when they are applicable and proceeds
to demonstrate via a combination of scientific theory
understanding and engineering modeling, and the solution of
design problems facing a user interface designer.
The course surveys a wide range of psychological theories
beginning with organizational behavior approaches to
understanding work and workflow within organizations and
moving to understanding human psychological architecture and
processing constraints. It also covers new design methods and
techniques available and the new conceptual mechanisms used in
HCI such as the metaphors for describing user interaction.
