ITE 340 Human Computer Interaction

3 Credit(s)
This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), a discipline that focuses on designing highly usable software systems. The study of human-computer interaction enables system architects to design useful, efficient, and enjoyable computer interfaces. This course teaches the theory of human psychology, principles of computer systems, user interface design procedure, and programming practices behind effective human interaction with computer. The course considers the interdisciplinary nature of HCI and introduces various issues involved in using technologies for different purposes in the organizational and social contexts. The course will thus provide a background for students to practice system design, selection, evaluation, and use the knowledge of human characteristics, interactions styles, user and task analysis, and design and evaluation procedures. Three lecture hours per week.
Prerequisites: ITE105 , ITE201 .
