[Lecture DIS] Designing Interactive Systems with Capstone Project

  • Date: 20.04.2022
  • Computers have evolved from batch processors towards highly interactive systems. This offers new possibilities but also challenges for the successful design of the interaction between human and computer.  Interactive system are socio-technical systems in which users perform tasks by interacting with technology in a specific context in order to achieve specified goals and outcomes. The aim of this course is to introduce advanced concepts and theories, interaction technologies as well as current practice of contemporary interactive systems.


    The course is complemented with a design capstone project. The students analyze a real-world challenge provided by our partner EnBW and design innovative prototypes based on the lecture content. Students do not only gain hands-on experience with various prototyping tools, but also show their project management and collaboration skills.


    For a detailed insight into previous students work, you can watch the videos of all prototypes on our YouTube Channel.


    The lecture starts next Thursday at 3:45 pm (28.04.) at Hertz Hörsaal (Build. 10.11), click here to go to the ILIAS Folder.
