Human-Computer Interaction

course description & grading

Overview

The main objectives of the Human-Computer Interaction discipline: to provide a comprehensible vision of the user interface design aspects and the user-computer interaction paradigms.

The enrolled students (2nd semester, Master studies at Faculty of Computer Science, UAIC) will be able to design ergonomic and attractive user interfaces for specific types of audiences, applications, platforms, and devices, including Web and mobile ones – consult the main HCI topics.

Evaluation

The assessment procedure consists of a mandatory HCI project:

Additionally, a set of tests and exercises:

The assessment of D and P components will provide 0—10 points – consult the list of requirements & deliverables. Each Ti and Ei, with i ∈ [1, 4], will be evaluated with maximum 2.5 points.

Grading formula is D * 0.2 + P * 0.5 + T * 0.2 + E * 0.2,
where T = sum(Ti : i ∈ [1, 4]) and E = sum(Ei : i ∈ [1, 4]).

In order to pass, a student must obtain:

  • D >= 5

  • P >= 5

  • T + E >= 7
