Introduction to user interface design evaluation
Methods of instruction will include some or all of the following: lectures, labs, and self-directed learning (assignments and group projects).
Evaluation will be carried out in accordance with the Douglas College Evaluation Policy. The instructor will present a written course outline with specific evaluation criteria at the beginning of the semester. Evaluation will be based on the following.
|Assignments||0% - 15%|
|Quizzes*||0% - 15%|
|Project||25% - 35%|
|Term Tests*||20% - 35%|
25% - 35%
* In order to pass the course, in addition to receiving an overall course grade of 50%, students must achieve a grade of at least 50% on the combined weighted examination components (including quizzes, term tests, and final examinations.)
Upon completion of this course, successful students should be able to:
- Describe the process of interaction design and user experience.
- Identify the problem space and conceptualize human-computer interaction.
- Identify the role of psychology and human factors in the user interface design process.
- Describe interface metaphors, models, and paradigms.
- Identify various types of interaction, including social and emotional interactions.
- Utilize different user research methods to sketch an effective design.
- Use theoretical frameworks in data analysis.
- Evaluate, apply, and adapt various user interface design patterns.
- Utilize standard tools and techniques to design an appropriate user interface based on the requirements of the specific context and platform of use.
- Use scenarios to create a conceptual design.
- Generate prototypes using design rationales.
- Evaluate the quality and usability of the designed user interface.
