Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • elements of software design and development processes
  • recap of principles of object oriented programming
  • general principles of interaction programming
  • Graphical User Interface interaction programming
  • interaction-intensive internet programming 
  • mobile interaction programming
  • advanced frameworks for programming interaction
  • advanced interaction (augmented reality, multitouch surfaces, sensors and actuators)

Tehcnologies used in the labs and projects are Java Swing, Java FX, Android SDK, JavaScript and other JavaScript libraries.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student will be able to (DH2641 goals):

  • choose a user interface technology platform that is most suitable for a new system
  • prototype digital interactive systems using specific tools for running prototypes
  • program digital interactive systems based on various technology platforms and approaches to interaction
  • judge usability of and improve existing interaction programming
  • work together with other peers to design, prototype, and implement interactive systems.

To achive that, the student will:

  • get familiar with techniques, technologies and processes allowing them to prototype, develop and improve digital interactive systems based on various user interface technology platforms.
