I E 418 Human/Computer Interface Design (3)

The objective of this course is to enable students to design, implement, and evaluate human-computer interfaces according to principles outlined in foundational human-computer interaction readings. Students will be engaged in the active learning of design, programming, and usability concepts by way of building interfaces on the personal computer as well as on the Palm computing platform. A major component of the course is the capstone design project for which student teams will communicate with users to design, implement, and assess interfaces to improve existing work processes in an actual work domain (e.g., safety office, power plant).
