Course Description This class will give you hands-on experience with usability evaluation and user-centered design. In this class you will not learn how to implement user interfaces, but rather how to design these based on the needs of users, which you will determine, and learn how to evaluate your designs rigorously. This is a class for those who wish to know more about usability, human-computer interaction, the psychological aspects of computing, evaluation, and/or experimentation. The bulk of your grade will be based on a group project, where you will propose, prototype, and evaluate your own novel IT solutions. These projects will be presented to the whole school at the end of the term.

Course Assignments and Grading This class is meant to be a hand-on course. This means that you will be required to work on group projects (3-4 person groups) and class-work (in addition to doing readings) outside of class time. This class will also be very interactive. Participation will count towards your final grade, and I want a healthy discussion in each class session.
