Мета вивчення дисципліни: develop among students a systematic discovery of an effective interface in the "human-computer" system, the principles of its implementation, and provide them with skills in the development of such interfaces.
Завдання: The study of an academic discipline involves the formation and development of students' competencies: general: Ability to coordinate project work, draw up work schedules and work control. Ability to apply and integrate knowledge and understanding of other engineering disciplines. professionals: Knowledge of programming principles and tools of modern programming languages for solving problems in computer systems with a distributed structure. The ability to rationally justify the introduction of new software products, as well as to conduct testing and commissioning of new system and problematic software.
Learning outcomes: 1. Must know: - the subject and basic concepts of the discipline; - principles of operation of user interfaces of computer systems; - features of software design and implementation of user interfaces of computer systems; 2. Must be able to: - design and create interfaces, for users of computer systems of various levels preparation; - to create an experiment scheme for the purpose of research effectiveness of the developed user interface; - use appropriate tools.
Required prior and related subjects: Object-Oriented Programming, Computer systems, Research and design of software systems
Summary of the subject: The discipline "Research and design of user interfaces" provides the amount of knowledge necessary for the study of human-machine interaction, considers the main functional elements of user interfaces, the principles of their development and means of implementation. The discipline expands the skills already formed by previous disciplines in the field of programming, forms practical skills in creating user interfaces of computer systems.
