User Interface Design
Design is not just about pretty displays. Design can also be used as a powerful method to tackle vaguely defined real-world problems, i.e., for finding creative solutions to difficult problems. Students will learn the design process and its activities. They still apply it to find good and creative solutions to problems that can include things like electronic gadgets, business services, easy-to-fill-out forms, classroom layouts, and many more.
We are reading recent articles from proceedings and journals about emerging interface technologies and approaches to UX design. In addition, the students are designing a novel user interface where they have to deal with many difficult issues rarely encountered in designing your basic bread-and-butter interfaces.
