MMDI 111 - Introduction to Interface Design

3 credits
The software interface represents the focal point of user interaction with the various modes of multimedia communication. Readings by interface theorists inform discussions on the evolution of the software interface, conceptual models, prototypes, interaction design, deliverables, and basic concepts of human-computer interaction. Avenues for pursuing interactive media design in entertainment, publishing, and education are also addressed. Current technologies, including the trend from soft to hard interfaces are studied, in terms of their potential short- and long-term influence on communication and multimedia. Basic methods for rapid prototyping and testing are considered.
