Human-Centered Design Process & Methods (INFO 310)

This course introduces the process of human-centered design of interactive user interfaces. Teaches some of the basic approaches to design and evaluation of interactive user interfaces. Delivers practical advice on interaction design challenges. Applies human-centered design principles in the design of the user interface to an interactive computer system.

Upon successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:

  • Apply at least two methods for user data gathering and analysis
  • Asses user needs and make design decisions based on user needs assessment
  • Explain design principles and the iterative process of user-centered design
  • Perform user interface prototyping using at least one prototyping tool
  • Perform usability testing and user interface evaluation
  • Apply the principles of user-centered design to multiple interaction modes, such as mobile, wearable, and tangible interfaces
  • Describe the principles of accessible and universal design
Human-Computer Interaction (INFO 608)

This graduate level course focuses on the design of human-computer interfaces, covering topics such as task analysis, techniques for gathering design information, iterative design through prototyping, theoretical foundations of HCI and cognitive modeling of user interactions, and the integration of HCI techniques into the software development life cycle.

Upon successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:

  • Describe the general areas of study within the field of human-computer interaction
  • Describe the interaction between people, the work they do, the information systems they use, and the environments in which they work
  • Apply a user-oriented approach to the design of interactive computer interfaces
Social and Collaborative Computing (INFO 616)

Examines selected human, social and technical issues and concepts of computer-supported cooperative work, computer-supported collaborative learning and social networking. Topics include: the way that groups work in the networked organization; analysis and design of groupware; social networking and community-learning technologies; and future directions of these technologies. Includes theoretical and research literature on the design of social and collaborative systems.

Upon successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:

  • Apply collaborative, cooperative and social computing concepts and techniques to analyze potential organizational requirements
  • Apply selected collaboration and social computing systems to meet specific application requirements
  • Evaluate behavioral aspects of collaborative work environments
  • Discuss research literature on social and collaboration computing
