  • 2010
  • More Than Pretty Pictures Tool Communication Interaction Aesthetics 2 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • In the Beginning… Lack of compiled historical documentation Everything we use has an interface (Jørgensen, 2008) 3 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • History in Computing 1950s – Interface as hardware 1960s – Interface as software 1970s – Interface as terminal 1980s – Interface as dialogue 1990s – Interface as work setting 2000s – Interface as interconnected 2010s – Interface as mobile (Grudin, 1990) 4 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • By Any Other Name User Interface Design Graphical User Interface (GUI) User Experience Design (UXD) User Centered Design (UCD) Window, Icon, Menu, Pointing Device (WIMP) (Marcus, 1990; Rietz, 2010) 5 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Related Areas Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Information Architecture (IA) Information Design Interaction Design (IXD) Usability and Accessibility Heuristics (Marcus, 2005) 6 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Related Disciplines Human Computer Interaction (HCI or CHI) Cognitive Psychology / Behavioral Science Human Factors / Ergonomics Design Anthropology Computer Science Information Technology Graphic Design 7 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Web of Science 8
  • Laws, Models, Theories Fitts’ Hick’s Applied Semiotics Direct Manipulation (Fitts, 1954; Hick, 1952; Kaber, Riley, & Tan, 2002, Rietz, 2010 ) 9 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Fitts Time (in msec) = a + b log2 (D/S+1) (Raskin, 2000; Dix, Finlay, Abowd, & Beale, 2004) 10 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Time (in msec) = a + b log2 (n+1) Hicks Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Example 1 Example 2 11 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010 (Raskin, 2000)
  • Applied Semiotics What do these icons mean? Why do they mean that? (http://www.iconfinder.com) 12 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Direct Manipulation How did we get to this slide? Can we go back? How do we get to the next? Why is this important? 13 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010 (Kaber, Riley, & Tan, 2002)
  • Current Research Usability Accessibility Semiotics Cultural / Demographic Studies 14 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Why Research? Everything has an interface Most interfaces can be made more: Usable Accessible Save designers time in iterating and testing Save user headaches in using (Hollingsed & Novick, 2007) 15 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
  • Potential Research Areas Information Retrieval Usability & Accessibility Digital Divide Cultural Studies 16 Harrelson, SLIS 6000, 2010
