Human Interfaces

EMM 550
Description: What are the physical and psychological constructs shaping human interaction? Students will discover fundamental interaction, communication, and design concepts through a myriad of perspectives: dance, music, language, crafts, architecture, and engineering. Did mechanical and early computing devices take these into account? Students will explore the evolution of computer interfaces from command line to GUI, from hypertext to hypermedia. Insights gained will be applied to constructing computer-mediated environments that support human interaction.
