liginlals home 67-315: Interaction Design for the Web

This course explores the relationship of how personal technology can bring meaning to the human experience, the employment of design values in the creation of digital spaces, and the importance of fine craftsmanship and beauty both front and back. A combination of programming, human-centered design attitude, and the craft of interfaces will be supported by lectures, readings, and labs. At the end of the course, the students are expected to have a more developed understanding of the project development process and the grammar of building web sites, understand emerging web standards, learn state-of-the-art testing methods, and the application of heuristic methods and testing tools such as Tobii eyetracker and Morae.
