Prof. Barbara Bernal NEW Office in J 126 Office Hours: M 4pm - 5:30 PM Class Lecture: M 6 PM - 8:30 in J133 Weekly Web Lecture between Tuesday to Sunday in D2L SITE: cse.spsu.edu/bbernal Email email@example.com@kennesaw.edu
A course that presents the fundamental knowledge, processes, skills, and practices leading to the user-centered design of computer systems and applications. The course addresses the effectiveness of human interactions with computers by examining issues of physical ergonomics, cognition and perception, human memory and information processing, and evaluation of prototype software in a Usability Lab. Usability engineering techniques are covered leading to improved system effectiveness in supporting use of computers, user learning, diversity in interaction styles, and individual versus group work. Class exercises provide practice of needed skills. A major design and development project that integrates all aspects of user- centered design is included. Prerequisite: SWE 1302 or CS 1302 or IT 1124 or CSE 1302
Textbook: User Interface Design & Evaluation by Stone Edition 05 ISBN 9780120884360 Course Goals/Objectives: 1. Know and use Human Computer Interactive (HCI) usability principles and guidelines. 2. Gather the user, task, and environmental characteristics to form the user profile for a system. 3. Design and build prototype for two inter-related systems (Desktop and PDA) which meet the goals of user centered and task oriented. 4. Perform an HCI usability team test in the SPSU Usability Lab.
Policies: This course is done in two formats for the 4 hours of credit: Weekly Class Lectures - Weekly class lecture which includes power point presentations with examples, diagrams and hints to cover the course material and class interaction to experience the content. Class exercises, role-playing, and small group discussions are also part of the class activities. Attendance/participation to the lectures is taken at a varied time of the lecture; often with a written component that needs to be handed in at the end of class. Weekly Web Activities - Activities are always posted on cse.spsu.edu/bbernal and have a deliverable in D2L drop box. These WEBs have a due date to be submitted via D2L. At times a Activities will have graded items that need REDO - Please redo them and hand in the original graded stapled with your redo by the next class meeting (Not via email or D2L). *All students are responsible to keep notes on both formats.
1. Class attendance and participation is expected and will be recorded at different times from both formats. Turn off all beepers, cell phones, etc. during class lecture. The recording of the attendance will be binary (1/0), with no provision of late or left early, so if you are not present at the time of the "attendance taking" you will get 0. Attendance will be taken at different times of the semester in different input formats (calling roll, class exercise roll, etc.). 2. Students are responsible for all announcements and assignments made in the class lecture and on the website. If you miss part or the entire class lecture, call/email another student. Do not call/email me to repeat the lecture. Further, if you know that you will be absent for an extended period of time during the semester, you MUST notify me for discussion of consequences. You are responsible for all material covered, announcements made and discussed in class. 3. One and only one alternate test schedule will be arranged if and only if in advance and for valid reason. Tests are closed books but students can bring one sheet (8 1/2 X 11) with notes on both sides to all tests. This sheet must be turned in with the tests. Projects, tests, exercises, assignments and home works must be completed in the format and requirements specified and MUST include your name, class (SWE 4324) and professor name (Bernal). Each student must keep a copy of their original work and all returned graded work. All work submitted for credit is expected to be the work of the individual student or the students in the group project. All code, research material, or sources used (i.e. not original work created by student) must include the source, location, and date of the original. According to university policy academic dishonesty (cheating, collaboration, and/or plagiarism) is not permitted and will receive a mark of zero.
4. All work submitted for credit is expected to be the work of the individual student. In cases of team work - all the students contributing will have their names on the work. Any material taken from the book, web site, etc. must be footnoted with the origin of the material. The definition of the CSE Academic Integrity Policy may be found on the CSE web site at http://cse.spsu.edu/CurrentStudents/academicintegrity.shtml. http://cse.spsu.edu/CurrentStudents/academicintegrity.shtml 5. The assigned reading is to be done before the lecture. Group discussion and group study of the assignments is permitted and encouraged, but when you begin to prepare your individual assignments all collaboration must cease. 6. The instructor will be available during the stated above office hours unless specified in the homepage (cse.spsu.edu/bbernal). You may make an appointment for the times not posted through EMAIL to firstname.lastname@example.org
7. Assignments, projects and homework are due on or before starting class time of the due date. Students that come to class on time on the due date can sign a 24 hour extension for their work and/or students who put their work on time on D2L can redo that work if needed. The redo is graded towards the end of the term for additional credit. Late work will be deducted 10% per day as long as the work has not been graded and returned, i.e. NO LATE work would be accepted once the work is graded and returned. Exceptions of this rule is directed redo work (or re- submitted work) as per Bernal is due the following class from when given to class. Late penalty of 10% per day is assessed on all late work. If a class meeting is canceled, the class schedule is adjusted accordingly, but the exam dates would remain the same. 8. Sending Web Assignments is best done via D2L dropbox. The final GUI project and the final Team Usability Evaluation must be printed out and handed into Prof. Bernal during the due day. Your teams can have all the drafts versions in the correct D2L folder – but the final version must be printed out. 9. "Students with disabilities who believe that they may need accommodations in this class are encouraged to contact the counselor working with disabilities at (770) 528-7226 as soon as possible to better ensure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion." "If you are majoring in Computer Science and have questions about your schedule or you are having registration problems, please contact the CS Student Services office located at J 393 or call (770) 528- 7406 and ask for an appointment."
