Methods in Human Computer Interaction

Methods in Human Computer Interaction

Goal edit

We will develop content for a new wikibook where we describe, document and critically assess methods relevant to the field of Human Computer Interaction.

Foreword edit

Being that the nature of the field of Human Computer Interaction is that it is interdisciplinary, methods proceed and are adapted from many other disciplines. There are but a few of which we could call "genuinely native" HCI methods. To complicate matters, computerized systems change at a vertiginous pace and changes are often surreptitious. It seems as if Kurzweil was not as far off from fact with his predictions. Through this book, we will learn, critique, apply, and expand different methodologies to make them suitable to the study of the interfaces between humans and computerized systems.

We will use our textbook and articles to guide our discussion and we will collaborate in documenting the state of matters through this WikiBook.
