Interaction Design for Immersive Systems

Interaction Design for Immersive Systems

Explores interaction design issues for immersive media experiences.

Objective & Outcomes

This course explores interaction design issues for immersive media experiences that are enabled by visual formats such as multiple displays and immersive displays (e.g. head mounted displays) and are used for applications such as vehicle simulators and augmented reality environments. In particular, we will look at the use of interaction models and techniques to provide users/participants with useful performance support by understanding principles and applying strategies for managing multi-modal interaction, task delegation, and adaptive interactions. 

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to create and present designs that use advanced principles and demonstrate their understanding of immersive systems concepts.
