Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) MSc HLTI

This course addresses the fundamentals of Human-Computer Interaction with emphasis on interaction design for multimodal systems. The main part of the course will focus on User-Centred Design, providing concepts and hands-on practise on techniques for collecting user requirements, lo-fi and hi-fi prototyping, formative and summative evaluation.

Additional topics covered include basic notions of cognitive ergonomics, pyschometric theory and a crash course on a rapid prototyping tools (like, for example, Macromedia Flash). During the course, students will have the opportunty to work in real projects, designing and evaluating prototypes of multimodal systems.
