Prototyping Interaction

The course builds on the students' previous knowledge of prototyping in the context of human-computer interaction (HCI) and interaction design. The central theme is how different interaction contexts involves different conditions for prototyping as part of the design work. With starting point in the desktop, screen and mouse-based interaction, new contexts, technologies and environments with changing demands of prototyping, are explored.
