Aims

The participants will after the course have a basis for understanding the interaction between human beings and computers and the relations between design and use and practical experience with interaction design and its techniques and methods. The working method of the course will also train the participants to plan and complete projects.

Goals

The participants must at the end of the course be able to:
  • name and define interface types.
  • plan and execute interaction design processes.
  • compare techniques for particular parts of the interaction design process.
  • construct interfaces.
