Interaction Design (also known as IxD) is the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, services and products for use by people. In this course students will explore the capabilities of humans in terms of emotion, perception and cognitive ability, and use this knowledge to conceive, design and build human-centric interaction systems. Students will investigate key theories, concepts, tools and contemporary interaction design techniques and learn how people engage with different digital technologies based on screen, mobile and virtual platforms. The course includes a variety of projects which lead to an impressive body of work demonstrating the student's creativity, problem-solving skills and technological know-how. Graduates will be well-rounded interaction designers and future leaders who specialise in finding novel ways to help people access and seamlessly interact with technology.
