Next Generation User Interfaces

Level: Master
Semester: 1st Semester (September - December)
Language: English
Teacher: Beat Signer
Assistant(s): Audrey Sanctorum ,   Payam Ebrahimi
Course Description

After attending the course on Next Generation User Interfaces, the student has an understanding of the interaction principles introduced by new devices such as smartphones, multi-touch tables or gesture-based interfaces as well as the theoretical background behind these interaction principles. The student is able to reflect on the qualities and shortcomings of different interaction styles, while placing the user at the core of the interface design process
