Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

No specific courses are mandatory, but general knowledge in computer science is necessary and in addition experience with using computers is required. Those that have taken the mandatory courses in computer science have met the required prior knowledge.

Aim

In human-computer interaction the main objective is to perform analysis, establish requirements, design and evaluate interactive computer-based systems and products. The purpose of this course is to give the student basic knowledge about human-computer interaction. It will discuss how to understand human cognition and human perspective by working with computers. Designing interactive computer systems to be efficient, easy, and enjoyable to use is important. The course will cover a broad knowledge regarding the human-friendly interface design.

Goal

After this course, the students shall be able to solve certain interface design problems and also to go deeper into any specific design area by taking advanced courses or even by self-study.

Content

The course is to give the participants knowledge about basic human cognition, human mental behaviour when it comes to interact with the system, the environment, social and organization issue related the design of user interface, various user-centered methods for evaluation with or without users participation, qualitative and quantitative methods for analysis and evaluation, guidelines for interface design, among other things, prototyping, and architectures for implementation and approaches in designing interactive systems.

Organisation

The education is based on lectures, excercies, tutoring and assignments.

Literature

Human-Computer Interaction, 2003, 3rd Edition, By Alan Dix, Janet Finlay, Gregory D. Abowd, and Russell, Beale, Pearson and Prentice Hall, ISBN: 0130-461091.

Examination

Written or oral exam on both theory and applications of theory. Compulsory assignments.
