CPSC 581: Human Computer Interaction II (Fall, 2013)
This second undergraduate course in Human Computer Interaction concentrates on having students acquire skills in creative aspects of Interaction Design. It is an unusual course for computer science as it somewhat follows the structure of a design studio: students mostly learn by doing vs. listening to lectures.
Advanced topics and applications in human computer interaction, with emphasis on developing skills for designing highly interactive human-computer interfaces.
