Registrations are invited for 6 weeks Online Course on Human-Computer Interaction I- Fundamentals & Design Principles by Georgia Tech. Online registrations are open on the official website.
About the Course
This course takes you through the first eight lessons of CS6750: Human-Computer Interaction as taught in the Georgia Tech Online Master of Science in Computer Science program.
In this course, you’ll take the first steps toward being a solid HCI practitioner and researcher. You’ll learn the fundamentals of how HCI relates to fields like user experience design, user interface design, human factors engineering, and psychology. You’ll also learn how human-computer interaction has influence across application domains like healthcare and education; technology development like virtual and augmented reality; and broader ideas like context-sensitive computing and information visualization.
What you’ll learn?
- The overall goals of human-computer interaction.
- The relationship between HCI, user experience design, human factors engineering, and psychology.
- The relevance of HCI to domains like healthcare, education, and cybersecurity.
- The trends in HCI technology including virtual reality, augmented reality, and robotics.
- The emerging ideas in HCI research, such as context-sensitive computing, gesture-based interaction, and social computing.
- The three main schools of thought in HCI: the processor, predictor, and participant views.
- The feedback cycle in user interaction, including gulfs of execution and evaluation.
- The notion of directness in interaction, and the role of direct manipulation.
- The strengths and limitations of the human user, including sensation and memory.
- The role of design principles and heuristics in user interface design.
- The most important principles for design, including discoverability, affordances, perceptibility, and error tolerance.
By the end of the course, you’ll have an understanding of where HCI sits in the broader field, a grasp of the goals of HCI, and a foundation in core principles that inform interface design.
6 Weeks (5–6 hours per week)
