Subject Description
The subject provides students with an understanding of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) principles and practices, and how to apply them in the context of developing usable interactive computer applications and systems. The subject also emphasises the importance of taking into account contextual, organisational, and social factors in the design of computer systems. Students will be taken through the analysis, design, development, and evaluation of user interfaces. They will acquire hands-on design skills through an interaction design project. The subject will cover topics including user-centred design, the development process, prototyping, usability testing, measuring and evaluating the user experience and accessibility.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Identify and describe HCI principles and design issues.
2. Discuss and justify HCI solutions based on design principles.
3. Demonstrate an understanding of the HCI design process.
4. Acquire skills to design and implement user-centred design.
5. Select and use suitable methods of measuring and evaluating the user experience.
