(3cr.) Human-Computer Interaction Design (HCID) describes the way a
person or group accomplishes tasks with a computer - what the
individual or group does and how the computer responds; what the
computer does and how the individual or group responds. Sometimes
known as “interface design,” HCID becomes increasingly important as
computing intelligence and connectivity spread ubiquitously to home,
work, and play environments. This course will be organized around a
collection of readings and three design projects concerned with
applying human-computer interaction principles to the design,
selection, and evaluation of interactive systems.
