Prerequisites for registration: none
 
Assessment methods:
Two individual projects evaluated by 25% and 25%, final examination is written by 50%, maximal final evaluation 25+25+50=100%, minimal success is 56% grade E.
 
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Introduction to the basic problems of interface design. Theoretical principles, methods of evaluation and practical examples. Individual projects are oriented to interface testing and own interface design. The problem of human-technology interaction is extended to the understanding of basic features of electronic devices and their limitations and shortcomings.
