This course presents scientific approaches to making software that is “intuitive” and “powerful”. Lecture notes (text) on Human Computer Interaction
Type of Material:
Faculty lecture notes.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
No learning goals per se, the lecture notes support the instructor's lectures on the subjects covered by the textbook.• The scope and challenges of HCI and Interaction
• Visual representation. Segmentation and variables of the display plane. Modes of correspondence
• Text and gesture interaction. Evolution of interaction hardware. Measurement and assessment of novel methods.
• Inference-based approaches. Bayesian strategies for data entry, and programming by example.
• Augmented reality and tangible user interfaces. Machine vision, fiducial markers, paper interfaces, mixed reality.
• Usability of programming languages. End-user programming, programming for children, cognitive dimensions of notations.
• User-centred design research. Contextual observation, prototyping, think-aloud protocols, qualitative data in the design cycle.
• Usability evaluation methods. Formative and summative methods. Empirical measures.
Target Student Population:
Not students, but faculty at a university level institution.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Faculty using these notes are assumed to have expertise in the subject matter.
Notes are well detailed and thoroughly the subject material of each chapter in the book.
Presence of summary at the end of each paragraph is helpful • Good for general culture about HCI
• Lack of figures (even though the reason was explained in the resource: copyright issues)
• Lack of examples
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
Having this sort of detailed written discussion of the subject matter from the textbook would make working up weekly lectures easy to do and also aligns the lecture well with the textbook.
• Interesting content but HCI evolved a lot since 2010
• Relation between different concepts is difficult to identify
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
• Contents are organized
• Presence of references
• Design could be improved
• Absence of table of contents
Other Issues and Comments:
The lecture notes are presented as a typical word processor type document, easy to print off and use, no issues seen.
