CS 3140 - Human-Computer Interaction

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): CS 2050 with grade of “C” or better, or permission of instructor

Description: This course explores and develops knowledge that enables computer scientists to improve human-computer interaction through the exploitation of cognitive science theories about how people interact with their environments. Topics include: how people interact with each other and with computers; insights provided by models of cognition, memory, perception, attention, and thought; defining, specifying and assessing usability; and the roles of computer interface elements and behaviors. Students will examine theories and use interactive computer systems as the vehicles for the study of human-computer interaction and design for usability. Students will evaluate the effectiveness of existing interfaces and will experiment with authoring their own.
