Human Computer Interaction

This course focuses on the interaction between computer systems and the people who use them, introducing analysis and design techniques that can improve the quality of that interaction. Topics include design and evaluation of user interfaces, cognitive and social dynamics factors that affect usability, and software architecture considerations. While the emphasis is on conventional graphical and web user interfaces, alternative interface devices and technologies are also discussed.. Design guidelines, evaluation methods, participatory design, communication between users and system developers
