LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

By the end of this class, a successful student has: 

  • acquired a good knowledge about the user-centered design process,
  • acquired a broad theoretical understanding of the methods used  in Human Centered Computing, and
  • extended his/her vocabulary with the relevant domain-specific vocabulary.

Lehrmethodik inkl. Einsatz von eLearning-Tools

Lectures + discussions, exercises, and student presentations, written exam (closed book).

Inhalt/e

This class is split in two parts. The first part provides an introduction to human centered computing (HCC) and human centered design (HCD) with a focus on the ultimate goal thereof: to build digital artifacts that are easy, efficient and pleasurable to work – or interact – with. In the second part we will focus on the user-centered design process and discuss and get familiar with several methods and techniques  (e.g., A/B Test, Heuristic Evaluation, Controlled Experiments, Personas, Storyboards, Diary Studies, and Usability Tests) used to achieve the ultimate goal of HCC/HCD.
