Human-Computer Interaction IV: Evaluation, Agile Methods and Beyond

Course Description

Complete your understanding of the design life cycle by learning to take interface ideas, prototype them quickly, and evaluate them with real users. In this final course in the professional certificate, you’ll complete your understanding of the design life cycle and learn about the modern relevance of human-computer interaction (HCI). You’ll tie principles and methods together, while also learning the next steps you could take in HCI.

This course takes you through the last nine lessons of C S6750: Human-Computer Interaction as taught in the Georgia Tech Online Master of Science in Computer Science (OMSCS) program.
