West Lafayette Campus
Lecture Schedule Type
Learning Outcomes: After successful completion of this course, a student will be able to: • Apply HCI methods such as semi-structured interviews and contextual inquiries to uncover user needs and realistic problems that can be solved by computational methods • Apply user-centered design principles to iteratively develop interface designs to address those needs • Develop prototypes to concretize a design idea in different levels of fidelity • Critique a design idea or prototype and pinpoint design flaws and usability issues based on commonly agreed upon design principles and usability heuristics • Iteratively evaluate and improve upon the prototypes based on feedback from potential users • Communicate your design ideas and findings to target users, other designers, funders, etc. • Work in a team and succeed
