Anmerkungen

In case the number of registered participants exceeds the maximal number of participants (35), students in the Media and Convergence Management program will be favoured over any other students since it is a mandatory course in the Media and Convergence Management program. After that, students in the Games Studies and Engineering program will be favoured over any other students, since it is an elective course in the Games Studies and Engineering program. After that, students in any other program will be enrolled.

LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

By the end of this class, successful students have: 

  • 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 their vocabulary with the relevant domain-specific vocabulary.

Lehrmethodik inkl. Einsatz von eLearning-Tools

lecturesdiscussionsin-class hands-on exercisesgroup work – based on literature studies, each group prepares a written description of one user-centered design method and present their work in class

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.

Literatur

Most introductory books on human-computer interaction, interactive systems, usability, interface design, etc. include the basics we will cover early on in the class, as well as some of the methods we will explore later on. Below is a list (in random order) of some suitable books. The list could easily be extended. The university library has a good collection, including many of the listed books.
