OVERVIEW

The course covers the main issues related to Human-Computer Interaction. In particular, the course provides the theoretical principles, models and methodologies for the implementation of interactive systems based on computer and customized to the needs of the users. Moreover, the execution of monographic projects makes it possible to acquire operational skills for the design and implementation of interactive systems for data input/acquisitiona, learning, communication.

TEACHERS AND EXAM BOARD

Ricevimento: Reception at the end of the lessons or by appointment. In addition to this method students can use the Forum of teaching discussions of the module AulaWeb of the course to ask for explanations and clarifications, both on the theoretical topics of the course and on the performance of exercises seen in class or performed personally by the student.

EXAMS

Exam description

The exam includes a written test and the execution of a monographic project on the design and development of interactive systems for the introduction / acquisition of data, learning, or communication. Alternatively, only attending students can replace the written test with a continuous and detailed assessment during the lesons of the level of knowledge acquired.

Assessment methods

The exam assesses the acquisition of the concepts contained in the course, the ability to apply these concepts to the design, implementation and evaluation of an interactive system for data input/acquisition, learning, communication. The exam is not passed when the theoretical and practical training objectives have not been achieved; in this case the student is invited to deepen the study and to use further explanation by the teacher concerning the theoretical or practical contents of the course.
