CS 5340: Computer/Human Interaction
Lecture - 4 credits
- Covers the principles of human-computer interaction and the design and evaluation of user interfaces.
- Topics include an overview of human information processing subsystems (perception, memory, attention, and problem solving); how the properties of these systems affect the design of user interfaces; the principles, guidelines, and specification languages for designing good user interfaces, with emphasis on tool kits and libraries of standard graphical user interface objects; and a variety of interface evaluation methodologies that can be used to measure the usability of software.
- Other topics may include World Wide Web design principles and tools, computer-supported cooperative work, multimodal and “next generation” interfaces, speech and natural language interfaces, and virtual reality interfaces.
- Course work includes both the creation and implementation of original user interface designs, and the evaluation of user interfaces created by others.
- Requires knowledge of C programming language/UNIX.
