DAAT 370 Psychology of Human/Computer Interaction

College of Art, Media & Design

3 credits 45.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

Students explore the ways humans perceive interacting with computers. How do humans treat computers? Why? Should we interact with them the same way we do with other humans? The reasons behind why some computer interfaces work and some do not are discussed in depth. Should computers be able to perceive our emotions? Or should computers themselves have emotions? The final for this course allows students to take part in designing an original interface solution.
