Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
The student can design, develop and evaluate low fidelity and high fidelity prototypes of an intelligent interactive system that is well justified in context.
The student is able to take real users into account in the analysis, design, and evaluation of interactive systems with respect to both usability and user experience.
The student can formulate a research question and answer it by choosing and applying various research methods to collecting data

In the academic year 2023-2024 this study unit is only open for registration by repeat students who need to re-take the exam from last year.

All others please refer to the new module Interaction Design 202300215 . 

This study unit is about designing, realising and evaluating the interaction between people and technical systems. Within the unit, students design an interactive (and possibly intelligent) system and evaluate it with potential users. In the project, the students work in  teams to design and evaluate an interactive system. Through lectures, colstructions and self-study on design and evaluation of human-computer interaction students learn about various methods for conducting user studies, and quantitative and qualitative methods to analyse the resulting data.

Manual enrollment via Osiris is only for Creative Technology students. If you want to enroll, please contact K. Zalewska (
Assumed previous knowledge
We expect students to be able to take human factors into account when iteratively developing interactive products and to apply appropriate evaluation methods to test the usability of these products.
