CS247 is a theoretical and practical exploration of Human Computer Interaction design.

Successful participants will become well-versed in observation, idea logs, brainstorming, bodystorming, personas, end user testing, iterative prototypes, design presentations, etc - and - have practical experience using these techniques for design projects.

We offer an optional 1-unit lab covering design tools and technologies relevant to the course. We intend the lab to enrich the academic content of the course!

There are no formal prerequisites, but CS147 Introduction to HCI is strongly recommended. CS107 or equivalent programming experience is required.
