Interaction Design 2E: Beyond Human Computer Interaction
New to this edition:
- Completely updated to include new chapters on Interfaces, Data Gathering and Data Analysis and Interpretation, the latest information from recent research findings and new examples
- Now in full colour
- A lively and highly interactive Web site that will enable students to collaborate on experiments, compete in design competitions, collaborate on designs, find resources and communicate with others
- A new practical and process-oriented approach showing not just what principals ought to apply, but crucially how they can be applied
"The best basis around for user-centered interaction design, both as a primer for students as an introduction to the field, and as a resource for research practitioners to fall back on. It should be labelled 'start here'."
—Pieter Jan Stappers, ID-StudioLab, Delft University of Technology
Jenny Preece: Professor of Information Systems at UMBC, Regular keynote and invited speaker at SIGCHI and other conferences, prolific author and commentator. Her research focuses on online communities and social computing.
Yvonne Rogers: Professor of Informatics and Cognitive Science at Indianna University and teaches mainly in the areas of HCI, CSCW, ubiquitous computing. Her research focuses on augmenting and extending everyday learning and work activities with interactive activities that move “beyond the desktop”.
