MetadataShow full item record
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is the study of the principles and methods with which one builds effective interfaces for users. HCI is a field of study that evolves to changes in the technological landscape. During the past decade, the emergence of personal mobile devices, agent-based technologies, and pervasive and ubiquitous computing is motivated by the technique of human computer interaction which has profoundly changed the way people use technology for work and leisure. This course introduces the student to the theory and practice of developing user interfaces. Practical hands-on will be balanced by discussion of relevant literature of computer science e.g. graphics, user interface design, multimedia and visual design of HCI, cognitive psychology, and scientific information design.
