IMM 100 - Interface Design and Rapid-Prototyping

Course Description

Design and create interfaces from a human-centered, activity-based approach. Students learn to evaluate and analyze user interface requirements, follow an interactive design model, and develop highly usable and aesthetically pleasing real-world applications. Using rapid-prototyping tools students will develop interactive prototypes for websites and applications that employ interface design standards. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to: Why the user interface is a critical component of computer-based training (CBT) and Web programs The goal of human-computer interaction To analyze and evaluate user interface requirements To use an interactive design process model To design applications employing user-centered design techniques To identify solutions to real world, instructional design problems How to use color effectively in its relationship to layout and design To identify and apply the principles of gestalt theory to visual screen design To use graphics and animation tools To compare and contrast digital image types: vectors and bitmaps To use rapid-prototyping tools to develop user interfaces that utilize interface design standards
