I am currently pursuing my Masters in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). I was always curious to learn more about human tendency to digital products, behavior and psychology behind it. The list of courses I have taken are as follows:
- Foundations of Human-Computer Interaction
- Information and Interaction Design
- Research Methods
- Usability Testing
- User-Centered Design Methods
- Human Computer Interaction with Mobile Devices
Research methods course had introduced me to the practical approach of various research methods. Literature reviews, hands-on experience with the qualitative, survey and experimental research methods were main goals of this course. Below are the list, of course worked both individual and as team based projects:
Information and Interaction design has enabled us with working on prototyping tools, building prototypes, conducting the contextual inquiry, building affinity diagrams and design lo-fi and hi-fi mockups of the product design.
Info & Interaction Design
Foundations of HCI mainly dealt with the design process, evaluation and implementation of an interactive computing system for human use. The course has covered the cognitive psychology, human factors, interaction styles, user analysis, task analysis, interaction design methods and techniques, and evaluation. Below is the course work on the heuristic evaluation.
