|Skills to be acquired in this module||
With the help of suitable resources, the students can design, prototype, and evaluate a human-machine interface following the user-centered design process (HCD).
The module covers research methods in the field of human-computer interaction. It discusses the core principles of human-computer interaction and the human-centered design process and its phases, context of use, requirements, and task analysis, prototyping and evaluation. Research methods used in the different phases of the process are introduced and discussed.
Available design options for human-machine interfaces are presented and discussed with regard to human perception capabilities and their limitations. The module discusses methods for user research, including surveys, diaries, case studies, interviews, and focus groups, as well as physiological measurements.
The module goes into further detail on evaluation methods, and introduces the foundations of experimental research in human-computer interaction, including types of research, research hypotheses, experimental design, and statistical analysis.
During the practical project, a concrete human-computer interface will be designed, developed and evaluated.

The completed practical projects will be presented on a single project day, which will take place at the end of the lecture period. The oral exam takes place within the last two weeks of the lecture period. If necessary, re-examinations will take place at the end of the term. Details on the schedule can be found on the websites of the department and in Stud.IP.
Practical group project which progress has to be presented regularly during the tutorials. Oral exam on the topics of the lecture. Practical project and oral exam count 50% each to the final grade. Both practical project and oral exam have to be passed individually.
