Evolving the Learning and Research Experience in Human Computer Interaction: 

Evolving the Learning and Research Experience in Human Computer Interaction Daniel Woo University of New South Wales

Goal: 

Goal Raise the profile of human computer interaction in both teaching and research

Goal - Student Learning: 

Goal - Student Learning Prepare students for user-centred design in software development projects Consider the needs of users and stakeholders Hands on experience Small group teaching Paper designs first

Goal - Research: 

Goal - Research Develop new techniques to better understand what people actually do Feed information back to all aspects of the design process Novel interaction methods

Slide5: 

Teaching Laboratory Research Laboratory

Communicate the vision: 

Communicate the vision In your department Mac-oriented Support Staff Building Facilities Architects Purchasing / Stores Apple Education Representative Apple Supplier

Predicting the Future: 

Predicting the Future Prior experience WWDC Crystal ball Aware of local conditions

July 2000: 

July 2000 3 hour lecture only No tutorials No laboratories No postgraduate students No teaching assistants No honours projects No Macs for CompSci Students

Mac OS X Proposition - Jul 2000: 

Mac OS X Proposition - Jul 2000 Macintosh user interface well known for its “user friendliness” and design Role in education UNIX - terminal window/X Windows Create a practical learning space

Augmenting Learning: 

Augmenting Learning 20+1 G4 PowerMacs with 17” Class room style layout

Considerations: 

Considerations Group discussion vs. class room Students can hide behind 17” monitors Noise from fans Remote Desktop can be used for locking, sleeping and screen sharing

Tutor-Student Ratio: 

Tutor-Student Ratio 300-400 students 20 students maximum Fortnightly laboratories spread the load over 2 weeks Each student - 6 x 2 hour classes 5 x 2 hour (tutorial + lab) 1 x 2 hour - assignment presentations

Laboratory Topics: 

Laboratory Topics Mac OS 9 Evaluation Mac OS X Evaluation Heuristic Evaluation Observation

Laboratory Topics: 

Laboratory Topics Computer Supported Collaborative Work Universal Access Interface Builder

Computer Supported Cooperative Work: 

Computer Supported Cooperative Work Carracho iChat / Rendezvous Hydra

Universal Access: 

Universal Access

Interface Builder: 

Interface Builder

Paper based Approach: 

Paper based Approach Design diaries for Computer Science students

Laboratory Management: 

Laboratory Management Rode the wave of releases of Mac OS X Server Integration with our existing (custom) UNIX management system non-trivial prior to 10.2 Started with stand alone machines

Tools: 

Tools Workgroup Manager Apple Remote Desktop/ANA Netboot Experiments with 10.2 Imaging Apple Software Restore FireWire Hard disk

UDB Integration - June 2003: 

UDB Integration - June 2003 Same username/password for all machines (UNIX, Windows, Mac) Home directories mounted/backed up Disk imaging (conform) Group, IP, Print quota management Eventually, booking system Independent of Workgroup Mgr

Present: 

Present 3 hour lecture only Tutorials - Yes Laboratories - Yes Postgraduate students - Yes - 2 Teaching assistants - Yes - ~4/year Thesis/4th year projects - Yes Teaching Laboratory Login Integration

Other Uses: 

Other Uses Office staff training AUC Other UNSW Staff Training Thesis students Primary School iMovie Workshops XCode

HCI Research Laboratory: 

HCI Research Laboratory

Data: 

Data What did they do/think/say… When did they click/error/… Where did they click/press/… Why did they make error/choose… How did they complete the task… Who interacted with who…

Infrastructure: 

Infrastructure Multi-camera Scan converter Video and audio editing Video matrix control DV recording equipment

Usability Data Collection: 

Usability Data Collection Investigating automated ways to collect usability data - COAR Synchronisation with other video material via QuickTime Analysis and reporting

Applications: 

Applications Interviews/focus groups Speech dictation Speech preferences TTS Discover X UserScan chemistry software School Web Site Novel user interfaces

Mac OS X: 

Mac OS X iMovie, Final Cut Pro iDVD, DVD Pro Cubase Custom software development Matrix Usability Observer COAR suite

Other Uses: 

Other Uses Audio applications Subjective testing Video material development DVD production

It about the people…: 

It about the people… Teaching Staff Postgraduate students Students who understand the needs of users Students who can develop software systems for people

Conclusion: 

Conclusion Raised profile, student numbers, awareness Created two facilities based on Mac OS X Tool development phase Need to train more students in user centred software development aspects
