Usability requires a user-centered and task-oriented design of information systems. After considering the basic physiological and cognitive properties of humans, the formal-language, the natural-language and the graphically-direct-manipulative user interfaces (GUI) as well as design guidelines are discussed in this course. The core is the evaluation and embedding of the user perspective in the software development process. Innovative interaction approaches such as virtual worlds, avatars, social interaction and mobile systems are also part of this course.This lecture is meant to be the English equivalent to the lecture “Einführung in die Mensch-Maschine-Interaktion” that takes place during the summer term.
