Dr.Mullen MIS 371 M 2-4:30pm Ch.10 Pg 351 1) Three principles for user interface design are 1. Layout, this refers to the organization of the screen, form, or report. Most software has a design layout that divides the screen into tress areas. The top usually is the main area that provides the navigation of the system, the middle area is for the display of the users work, and the bottom area is the status for what the user is doing. 2. Content awareness is the ability to let the user know exactly what information they are viewing. For example, a menu might light up when you are on the page containing that menu’s information. All pages should have titles, and be clearly defined as to the content it contains. Fields should have field labels, so there is no uncertainty what they may be typing into. 3. Aesthetics are the ability to design that is appealing to the eye, and has an uncluttered appearance. The aesthetics of a page can designed according to the potential user.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
