In the future, effective user interfaces and attractive user experience will play an increasingly important role for products that are getting more and more functionally similar and immaterial.
Especially the development of novel, more natural user interfaces – including multi-touch tabletops, pen- or gesture-based interaction, mobile UIs and tangible UIs – places completely new demands on a structured development process. With classical software & usability engineering approaches, this process cannot be covered.
In this context, the lecture will explain modern development processes ranging from analysis to evaluation and present the involved techniques (focus: scenario-based design and user experience design). In addition to the engineering-centered approaches, creative design phases play an important role as well. These phases comprise the creation of sketches, drawings and early prototypes. In a semester-long project, the conveyed concepts and techniques will be used by small student teams for the development of novel UIs.
Course work (CW) generally take place on Wednesdays and lectures (L) on Fridays.
