Cursusdoelen
Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the communication between humans and computer systems (many different forms of computer systems indeed!). It aims at designing interfaces and interactions to best support this communication.

Upon completion of this course, the student: 
  • knows the basic concepts related to HCI and the interdisciplinary nature of the field
  • knows the evolution of human-computer interfaces, interaction styles, interaction modalities, and devices/ tools
  • knows the human-centered interaction design process and elements of good design
  • can design interactive systems that use different interaction modalities
  • can design interactive systems for different types of users: differently-abled (e.g., users with cognitive or physical impairments); differently-aged (e.g., children, 75+)
  • knows the methods and measures that can be used to evaluate human-computer interaction and use them to design evaluation strategies for evaluating interactive systems
Inhoud
In a nutshell, this course teaches you the basic concepts related to interacting with computers, designing good interactions, and evaluating them. It starts with an overview of the field and with an emphasis on its interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature, physical and cognitive capabilities that inform the design of HCI, and the importance of the careful design of HCI. It will dig deeper into concepts related to interaction (e.g., interfaces, interaction styles, interaction modalities, devices, etc.), interaction design process (human-centered design, iterative development, elements of good design, etc.), and evaluation of HCI (aspects of HCI, evaluation metrics, instruments, etc.).

This course is organized as a series of lectures and guided project sessions. At the end of the course, you will design an interactive system for a specific user group using the concepts you learned during the course.
