Learning outcomes

The course aims to give students a basis for designing user interfaces that take inherent human capabilities into account and to enable students to take these topics into account when evaluating interfaces. As a result, students will also be prepared to compare human and machine perception and processing as related to new interface techniques.


The course focuses on the basics of human cognitive functioning. Topics include visual and auditory information processing, memory processes, and basic mechanisms related to thinking and problem solving. The emphasis will be on the applicability of the covered topics to interactive technology.
