CPSC 681: Human Computer Interaction II
This specialized course stresses evaluation methodologies for performing research in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). In particular, students will:
- investigate, compare and contrast a wide variety of existing evaluation methodologies,
- understand where and how each methodology is appropriate to particular interface design and evaluation situation,
- apply several of these methodologies to HCI problems,
- gain first-hand in-depth experiences with a particular methodology by designing, running, and interpreting a study of the student's choosing.
CPSC 681 is not an introduction to the field of HCI. If you are looking for a general course concerning user experience design, CPSC 481 and CPSC 581 would be a far better choice.
