Interaction design involves creating meaningful and intuitive experiences for the users of digital products and services. This course introduces students to the theoretical and practical issues involved in interaction design. Through readings and hands-on studio projects, students explore and develop appropriate solutions for a range of design contexts where interaction is critical, such as an information kiosk, a mobile device, or a service. Students develop user-centered scenarios with narrative scripts, personas, and storyboards to develop wireframes that can be translated into testable screen-based simulations or prototypes of their final designs.
