Universal Design of New Emerging Interfaces
Have you thought about how people with visual impairment or dyslexia can access your website? Or about how to design digitalized services like Internet banking systems so that elderly people can use them easily?
Course specific requirements:
- One half year (30 ECTS) of university education.
Course specific requirements come in addition to the general requirements, and most be completed before the application-deadline 1 March. It is recommended to have completed one full year of university studies (60 ECTS) before the program starts.
We strongly recommend that a minimum of 30 ECTS of your total 60 ETCS be within computer science.
The main topic in this course is the design, evaluation, and testing of everyday technology new and emerging user interfaces in technologies such as augmented, virtual and mixed reality; artificial intelligence user agents; brain-computer interfaces; and autonomous vehicle – among others. This is developed in accordance with principles for universal accessibility. This is and acquired through many practical exercises coupled with lectures presenting theories relevant to the field.
The course will also provide both theoretical principles of universal design and hands-on experience on how to design and evaluate ICT systems using these principles.
The course will be offered both with 5 ECTS and 10 ECTS – the assignments differ between the two.
More information on the course will follow in January 2017.
