Human computer interaction user interface design. Module 1 the essence of interaction design. The purpose of a ui is to enable a user to effectively control a computer or machine they are interacting with and for feedback to be received in order to communicate effective completion of tasks. Module 2 non traditional and multimodal user interfaces. It deals with the design execution and assessment of computer systems and related phenomenon that are for human use.
User interface design refers to the aspects of hardware or software which can be seen or heard or otherwise perceived by the human user and the commands and mechanisms the user uses to control its operation and input data. Despite that some differences remain between hci and ux design. Transparent user interface. Designers aim to create interfaces which users find easy to use and pleasurable.
User interfaces that are screen based are virtual and do not make sense to try to design for real affordances at the interface except when designing physical devices like control consoles where affordance like pulling and pressing are helpful in guiding the. Does not distract the user. User experience design encompasses traditional humancomputer interaction hci design and extends it by addressing all aspects of a product or service as perceived by users. Module 6 the future direction of human computer interface.
User interface ui design is the process designers use to build interfaces in software or computerized devices focusing on looks or style. Module 5 multimedia speech and vision in computer interaction. Early user interfaces complex commands and graphical user interface gui. Module 3 collaborative computer interaction.
In many ways hci was the forerunner to ux design. Humancomputer interaction studies the design and use of computer technology focused on the interfaces between people and computers. Human computer interface hci was previously known as the man machine studies or man machine interaction. A user interface ui is a conduit between human and computer interaction the space where a user will interact with a computer or machine to complete tasks.
Hci is a broad field which overlaps with areas such as user centered design ucd user interface ui design and user experience ux design. Ui design refers to graphical user interfaces and other formseg voice controlled interfaces. As a field of research humancomputer interaction is situated at the intersection of computer science behavioural sciences design media studies and several other fields of study. Hci can be used in all disciplines wherever there is a possibility of computer installation.
