Course description: What makes products usable? How can products be designed for usability? Students develop an in depth understanding of product-user interactions by redesigning product concepts they have developed prior to taking the course for better usability. They identify the user requirements that drove the development of their product concepts, treat those requirements as hypotheses for a series of user experiments, and redesign their product concepts based on experimental findings. Video interaction and protocol analyses are introduced as research methodologies. Fundamental usability theories are covered.
