CS 247 is a theoretical and practical exploration of Human Computer Interaction design.
Successful participants will become well-versed in the utility of observation, idea logs, brainstorming, bodystorming, personas, heuristic evaluations, end user testing, iterative prototypes, design presentations, etc -- and have practical experience using these techniques for design projects.
Guest lectures will include talks from SimCity creator Will Wright, interactive artist Scott Snibbe, and IDEO co-founder Bill Moggridge.
We offer an optional 1-unit lab covering design and implementation tools relevant to the course. We intend the lab to extend and enrich the academic content of the course!
There are no formal prerequisites for CS 247, but either CS 147 Introduction to HCI or ME101, Visual Thinking is recommended. CS106a is also recommended.
