Course description and aims

This course introduces the computer foundation, cognitive model, and design methods for human-computer interaction.
1) Introduction of multimodal processing, extended senses as VR/AR, and cooperative support techniques such as CSCW or groupware.
2) Introduction of real-world computing such as the next generation of interactive systems.
3) Explanation of the cognitive model of interaction, sensation/perception, motion/control, and human communication.
4) Explanation of the human-centered design as a method of interaction design and its evaluation methods.

Student learning outcomes

1) Have an understanding of the research background, design concept and constitutive principles of current typical HCI system and advanced HCI system.
2) Acquire the ability to design and implement techniques of typical HCI system.
1) Have an understanding of the cognitive model of interaction, sensation/perception, motion/control, and human communication as a cognitive process of HCI.
2) Have an understanding of human-centered design, usability and UX, evaluation methods and communication design as in HCI design theory.
