First meeting

Thank you all for coming today. There were 11 of you present today and one more student has signed up to the course in ÕIS. In order to start with the group work next time you should form groups and complete the first three assignments:

There is also one individual assignment that you should complete between 04.02-10.02 — commenting the project ideas.

I shared out a folder in Dropbox with some additional readings. You should have received an e-mail about that. You can also find e-mail addresses of other students from Dropbox. Open the Shared folder options pop-up window and move your cursor over the gear wheel icon.

IMKE students know each other but some other students don’t. If you need help with finding the group members, then please leave a comment under this post.

If you have not yet registered to the course, then please do it before 04.02 in ÕIS. If somebody else is interested in joining the course, then it is not late yet. New students who join the course should contact me to get assistance in finding the group and access to Dropbox folder.


Welcome to the Interaction Design Methods course

IFI7156 Interaction Design Methods is a compulsory course in the Interactive Media and Knowledge Environments (IMKE) master’s program in Tallinn University. The course is provided for the first time in spring term 2013.

IMKE master program that was originally opened in 2006 was redesigned in 2012. The curriculum has shifted focus from new media towards human computer interaction. New compulsory courses include Foundations of Human Computer Interaction, Evaluating the User Experience, and Interaction Design Methods.

This course is based on the Interface and Interaction Design course that was provided in 2008-2012. The course has been redesigned according to the changes in the IMKE curriculum. The amount of credits has been increased to 5 ECTS and additional assignments have been included in the group work. However, the number of contact lessons has been decreased.

First meeting of the course will take place on Saturday 26.01 at 16.00 in room A-428. More information about the course is available in this website and in course program (PDF).
