DH1622 Human-Computer Interaction, Introductory Course 7.5 credits
Människa-datorinteraktion, inledande kurs
This introductory Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) course presents an overview of human prerequisites and consequences of using information technology as a tool for solving tasks. User interface design is a central part of making an adequate cooperation between humans and technology, but there are few ready to use solutions. Even if interface design is generally associated with human-computer interaction there are many other issues that are equally important. The course will present methods that help the designer to elicit user requirements and structure the design process with a focus on the users. Above all the course will emphasize the importance of paying attention to user needs, motivation and context in order to design usable systems.
