5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process designed for this subject is based on:

  • Continuous study and work, starting from the first day.
  • The learning of concepts and methodologies for the analysis and design of user interfaces during the master classes, in which the students' participation will be fostered.
  • The application of such knowledge in the classes of problem solving. In these classes, students will have an active role in the analysis of cases of good practices or small examples.
  • In the practical classes in the computer laboratory, the student will review use cases and will learn the technologies needed to develop user interfaces in different platforms.
  • Group work will be carried out by developing a project of an user interface for an application proposed by the teachers. This work will be considered for the evaluation in the terms expressed in that section.

5.2. Learning tasks

The program offered to the student in order to help him/her to achieve the expected results include the following activities:

  • In master classes, the program of the subject will be developed.
  • In problem solving classes, cases of good practices will be analyzed and problems about the application of the concepts and techniques will be solved.
  • The practical sessions will be carried out in a computer laboratory. In each session, the student will have to put into practice the activities previously programmed.

5.3. Syllabus

The program of the subject is the following:

  • Definition and basis of User-Centered Design (UCD).
  • Elements for the development of user interfaces for websites and multimedia applications. Compression, quality and formats for multimedia and web.
  • Management of projects of web systems and multimedia development following the principles of UCD.
  • Techniques of analysis for UCD.
  • Principles of design for the development of user-centered solutions.
  • User-centered evaluation methods.
  • Usability and accessibility: Guidelines and rules.
  • Advanced interfaces: ubiquitous, tangible, natural, sensorial and multimodal interfaces.
  • Applications.

 

5.4. Course planning and calendar

The planning of classroom teaching and the presentation of works will be adjusted to the general schedule established by the University of Zaragoza and the corresponding centers.
