Build on your foundational knowledge of Human-Computer Interaction’s (HCI) core principles by learning to design interfaces in the real world. From the investigating user needs to brainstorming potential designs, creating prototypes, and evaluating those prototypes, you’ll learn the four-stage design life cycle. The course will also cover the ethics of human subjects research, critical methods for requirements gathering, and how to brainstorm design alternatives.
This course takes you through lessons 14 through 18 of CS 6750: Human-Computer Interaction as taught in the Georgia Tech Online Master of Science in Computer Science (OMSCS) program. The design life cycle framework will provide the structure for the third and fourth courses in this professional certificate.
