Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies
As the design of interactive media and digital interfaces moves beyond desktop and laptop modes of interaction, these older modes are reconfigured and repurposed for new types of hardware. Likewise, new modes of interaction, such as gesture, touch, augmented, and geolocation, are now part of mainstream design. In this class, students will first learn to assess the usability of modes of interaction and then design for these modes of interaction by prototyping an application. Students who complete the class will have the assessment and design skills necessary for working with new and emerging modes of digital interaction.
