Course Description

This course introduces students to fundamental concepts and challenges pertinent to HumanComputer Interaction (HCI). Students will learn the importance of user's experience and human-related factors in the design and use of effective information systems. Students will also learn how HCI integrates concepts from different fields (e.g., cognitive psychology, design, computer science, etc.) to identify and understand human factors that influence systems design, accessibility, usability, and acceptance. Moreover, students will be introduced to user-centered design methods, techniques, and tools that could be used to design, evaluate, and choose effective human-computer interfaces.
