Description

In an age of ubiquitous computing it is essential that Interaction Design be based on the rich foundation of HCI research and knowledge. The Resonant Interface does that and more. It moves beyond the traditional scope of human-computer interaction (HCI) and is based on the concept of active learning that integrates theory and practice. Each chapter begins with a discussion of a particular HCI topic or concept that is then explored and put into perspective for interface design. The topics are then set in a design scenario using authentic interface problems and solutions. With a practical, engaging style, author Steve Heim moves beyond a focus on research findings and extends student learning into the processes of building useable interfaces for software and Web sites.

1 . Active Learning Approach: Using active learning, readers gain the experience necessary to truly understand underlying HICI theory. Each chapter begins with a discussion of a particular HCI topic or concept, which is then explored and put into perspective for interface design.
2 . Maxims: Maxims, or generally accepted truths, are presented to frame the context of the HCI theory, connecting supporting research to pedagogy.
3 . Design Scenarios: Topics from each section are set in a Design Scenario, a concrete, full-scale example that covers actual interface problems, demonstrating the relationship between HCI and interaction design. At the end of each chapter after chapter 3, students are given assignments and labs to further emphasize the application of HCI theories to interface design.
4 . Writing style: By integrating numerous viewpoints into one coherent narrative to motivate readers throughout the chapters, Heim’s style is appropriate for a variety of readers.
