Welcome to CS 2610 Fall 2015: Research Topics in Human-Computer Interaction


Class Number: 25788


3 Credits. Two lectures per week.


Overview

CS 2610 Research Topics in Human Computer Interaction (a.k.a. Interface Design and Evaluation) is a broad graduate-level introduction to HCI research. The course covers both seminal work on interactive systems and recent literature of the field. Students will become familiar with important techniques in the design, prototyping, and evaluation of user interfaces; and gain hand-on experience on how to conduct a research project in HCI.

The majority of the homework in this class will be oriented around the project. Many of these homework assignments will be done in with your project group, but some assignments (or parts of assignments) must be completed individually. We provide a rough schedule of the assignments here (the schedule may change over the course of the semester and we may choose to add or drop assignments).
