ITGS330. Human-Computer Interaction

Human-computer interaction (HCI) affects the creation of interactive systems, and in this course we discuss HCI’s wide variety of significant issues. You will learn to better organize the selection, design, implementation, and use of technologies such that the results are positive rather than negative. You first must understand the user's perspective and technology's impact on the user. The course will go through the most recent research to discover known facts, as well as relevant factors yet to be discovered regarding HCI. The user is at the core of the design process, which is based on a blend of computer science, cognitive science, and psychology. You will understand how HCI designers use analytical and empirical methodologies to analyze, forecast, and evaluate whether a design satisfies user needs.
