The explosion of digitally available information is driving the
need for more effective, efficient, and natural user interfaces to
intelligently support access to information, applications, and
people. This course provides an overview about the state of the
art in text based, 2-dimensional, and 3-dimensional
(collaborative) interface design. It will cover task and user
analysis, interface goals & interface design methods, empirical
evaluation, and conclude with a discussion of remaining
fundamental issues in the field.
Students will be expected to do readings, provide a
presentation on specific readings, and participate in discussion.
They will extensively use web design tools (e.g., Fireworks),
number of highly interactive user interfaces in diverse projects.
Students will conduct task and requirement analysis, learn basic
through application, and design, develop, implement, and evaluate
collaborative 2-D and 3-D environments.
