OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The aim of the course is to introduce the principles, design methodologies and the various implementation choices to build software that can be used in a simple, intuitive, productive, reliable and enjoyable way by the users to whom it is addressed. The achievement of this goal requires the study of three different themes: human factors (psychological characteristics of the user); the machine (possibility offered by existing input / output devices); interaction (analysis, design, evaluation of user interfaces). In addition to presenting the core concepts of the discipline, the course also emphasizes some recent major developments such as groupware, 3D interfaces, social networks, and on-line communication between people. The course also includes participation in a real evaluation of a user interface so that the student can effectively apply the evaluation techniques learned in the course.
