OBJECTIVES This course will introduce students to investigate the core concepts of HCI and the process of interaction design, which are identifying needs and establishing requirements, developing alternative designs, building prototypes of the designs and evaluating what is being built throughout the process. Methodologies for accessing users' needs and requirements and evaluating the alternative designs will be introduced as the basic tools of design practice. Students will be expected to be familiar with the essential contextual design methodologies and graphical representation skills using words, images, sound, and time to communicate efficiently through the course project.
