The course provides the students with abilities to use coherent design language on digital artefacts. The students obtain an expert posture in analysing design choices in a focused and insightful manner. The skills in understanding interaction principles, learned during this course, are beneficial for interaction analysts and designers in business, as well as in research.
The course introduces and discusses design principles that focus on the affordances of the digital medium. Interaction design is approached both as a cultural process and as a technical implementation. Taking the course alongside with a practice oriented programming, designing, testing, or a project course is beneficial for both courses. Also, this is a great course to take while you are starting to work on your Master's Thesis.
