* COS 436 / ELE 469
Human-Computer Interface Technology
Introduction to human-computer interaction, with emphasis on design, implementation, & evaluation of interactive hardware/software systems. Will examine a variety of input techniques (mouse, multi-touch, gesture, tangibles, bio-sensing, etc.), as well as computational mechanisms for creating sophisticated interactions (machine learning, signal processing, human computation, etc.). Also covered: interaction design, usability evaluation, accessible computing, ubiquitous computing, mobile interfaces, multimedia & gaming, others. Culminates in a team project involving design and implementation of an interactive system.
Sample reading list:
Dan O'Sullivan & Tom Igoe, Physical Computing
Rogers, Sharp, & Preece, Interaction Design: Beyond Human Computer Interaction
8 Assignments/Labs and 1 Final Project. Hands-on labs will build new interfaces with microcontrollers, sensors, and actuators. Culminates in a team project involving design and implementation of an interactive system.
