Lecture: Mensch-Computer Interaktion (winter 2019)

Within the lecture Mensch-Computer Interaktion (Human-Computer Interaction), usability engineering methods are introduced that aim at measuring and improving the interaction between humans and computer systems. These methods support the systematic analysis of user goals and requirements, the participation of end users in development processes as well as system evaluations with analytic and empirical methods. Among others, the following topics will be covered in the course:

  • Task and requirements analysis
  • Content layout and feature architecture
  • Conceptual design of navigation structures and dialogues
  • Model-based system evaluation
  • Usability inspection methods and walkthroughs
  • Usability testing and eye tracking analysis
