This course will equip the students with the tools and techniques required to design user-friendly interactive systems, latest theories, principles guidelines in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), User Experience (UX), usability and Interaction Design, Moreover the students will be able to understand  the entire user-centred design and evaluation process; from understanding user needs to design  interactive systems that meet those needs, to evaluate  the usability of those (and existing systems) through user research. The students will be able to explain the capabilities of both humans and computers from the viewpoint of human information processing.  The students will analyze and discuss HCI issues in groupware, ubiquitous computing, virtual reality, multimedia, brain computer interfaces and Word Wide Web-related environments and in Moblie Apps.
