Synopsis:

While human-computer interaction (HCI) may have emerged from within computing, significant contributions have come from a variety of fields including industrial engineering, psychology, education, and graphic design. The resulting interdisciplinary research has produced important outcomes including an improved understanding of the relationship between people and technology as well as more effective processes for utilizing this knowledge. Derived from select chapters in The Human-Computer Interaction Handbook, this volume highlights the development process with a focus on task analysis, contextual design, personas, scenario-based design, participatory design, and a variety of evaluation techniques.

Synopsis:

Hailed on first publication as a compendium of foundational principles and cutting-edge research, The Human-Computer Interaction Handbook has become the gold standard reference in this field. Derived from select chapters of this groundbreaking resource, Human-Computer Interaction: The Development Practice addresses requirements specification, design and development, and testing and evaluation activities. It also covers task analysis, contextual design, personas, scenario-based design, participatory design, and a variety of evaluation techniques including usability testing, inspection-based and model-based evaluation, and survey design.

The book includes contributions from eminent researchers and professionals from around the world who, under the guidance of editors Andrew Sear and Julie Jacko, explore visionary perspectives and developments that fundamentally transform the discipline and its practice.
