HMI 658 - History of Human-Computer Interaction,
Yngve Sundblad (email@example.com)
|Prerequisites||Graduate student status. It is recommended that the student has taken an introductory course on human-computer interaction in order to get the most out of class discussions.|
|Goals||To provide an historical overview of developments
in human-computer interaction. If you ever wanted to know more about where
our modern ways of interacting with computers come from then
this course will provide some answers.
This graduate seminar series serves as an introduction course to the history of human-computer interaction. We will be reading selected original papers that have come to shape our understanding of human-computer interaction. These readings start with Vannevar Bush (1945) and continue on to modern times.
We will also be watching videos and listen to recordings that help to illustrate important concepts and human-computer interaction techniques as these techniques were developed historically.
|Literature||Selected readings. Examples are given below and more will probably be added.|
|Examination||Class work includes reading papers each week and writing a one page reflection paper. Each student must also submit a five page final paper and participate in class discussions.|
