Aiming at both those who are new to the field and experienced designers, we present a comprehensive overview to the field of user interface design and evaluation:
- the benefits of a user-centred approach to the design of software, computer systems and websites;
- the practicalities of requirements gathering and developing interaction design from user requirements;
- and evaluating the user interface.
Reviews for User Interface Design and Evaluation
“User Interface Design and Evaluation is comprehensive and clear. It’s an amazing achievement – a textbook in plain English that works both for the classroom and for practitioners learning on their own. It covers the entire user-centered design process with details on the steps and techniques for requirements gathering, design, and evaluation. It includes great stories and case studies as well as engaging exercises. This is a superb book that puts all the pieces together.” Ginny Redish, Redish & Associates, Inc.
” This book offers much more of the sort of material that students yearn for but find too little of in existing textbooks: extensive, concrete, and realistic advice and examples about how to proceed while designing and evaluating user interfaces. With a steady stream of brief examples and some longer case studies; with ‘how-to-do-it’ advice and worked-out solutions to problems, the student is constantly confronted with – and guided through – the multifaceted real world of user interface design. The book also contains the material that we are accustomed to finding in HCI textbooks: presentation of well-known HCI concepts, principles, results, and methods. This material is woven together with the more concrete, practical information in a creative way that enhances the appreciation of both types of content.” Anthony Jameson, Professor, International University in Germany and Principal Researcher at DFKI,the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence
