Human Computer Interaction Design introduces students to the principles and practices of interaction design within the context of emerging technologies. Students work on a semester long design project to learn a human centred process of interaction design, finding and solving problems in a real life context. Using analysis, design and evaluation tools introduced in the unit, students work in collaborative groups to solve a people technology problem they have identified in their real life context building a proof of concept mobile application prototype.
This unit is reliant on on-line materials. This unit is reliant on on-line materials. Students must have access to a reliable high-speed broadband connection. Students will also need to have access to a digital camera/video camera and simple digital editing tools for use in the learning activities. Some web programming skills are required to build interactive prototypes.
