CSI 5122: Software Usability

This page contains general information about the course CSI 5122 (Winter 2017), taught by Professor Tim Lethbridge.

My objectives in teaching this course are 1) to raise your awareness of usability as a key software engineering quality; 2) to teach you up-to-date knowledge regarding usability engineering and human-computer interaction; 3) to teach you skills in UI design and evaluation; and 4) to help graduate students to learn to be be better researchers by emphasizing research techniques and paper writing.

Some students will have taken a user interface design course (such as SEG3125) before taking this course, but not all students will have had the opportunity to do this. If you have not, don't worry. I will review key undergrad knowledge in the first part of course. I will also ask you to do some extra reading, but not an excessive amount of this.


Course notes

Please click here for the course notes. As we work our way through the course, I will update these from the previous offering of the course, so they should only be considered final just before each week's lecture.
