ANNOUNCE: Rensselaer Offers HCI Summer Program 2007

Rensselaer will again be offering an HCI Summer Program
during summer 2007. Students will be able take one or both
of the introductory courses in the well-respected 4-course
graduate Certificate in HCI. The Certificate, designed in
cooperation with industry experts, provides those involved in
HCI design with knowledge and skills to create new and better
ways for people to communicate with and through computers.
Courses provide an overview of HCI usability, in-depth work
in electronic coaching systems, communication design for
the World Wide Web, and a capstone design experience.

Each HCI summer course is a blended learning experience
combining an intense 2-week on-campus experience with on-line
interactions and teleconferencing with Rensselaer faculty.
The on-campus portion for both courses may be completed within
the same 2-week period.

Summer 07 courses include:
* Foundations of HCI Usability: students will consider methods
of gathering users requirements for product functions and
information, ways to test products and information for
usability and suitability, and procedures for incorporating
the results learned through testing. Students will design and
conduct usability tests on products, documents, and
interfaces of interest.
* Communication Design for the World Wide Web: students will
examine the design and use of websites from initial gathering
of user requirement, through design, development, and
evaluation of a sites organizational structure, graphic
and textual content, and interactive design.

From June 1 - June 14, Comm. Design for the WWW will meet
from 4:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., and Foundations of HCI Usability
will meet from 10:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Both classes will work
at a distance on their final projects, then discuss by
teleconference. Software instruction is not included, so
knowledge of web programming software such as HTML, Dreamweaver,
Director, or Flash is necessary. Students choose their preferred
software.

Student may take one or both courses. Each 3-credit course is
offered at the special distance pricing of $1090 per credit hour.

Faculty include Roger Grice, well-respected leader in usability
testing, and Patricia Search, internationally acclaimed multimedia
designer. This program provides an excellent introduction to
those new to the field of HCI, including working professionals
in HCI-related areas and teachers in HCI-related fields such as
technical communication and information technology. It also
allows current Rensselaer students, both on campus and at a
distance, to accelerate their progress toward the M.S. or the
Certificate in HCI. Credits earned in the summer HCI program
may be applied toward the full M.S. in HCI or the Certificate
in HCI, offered on campus or at a distance, during the regular
academic year.

full M.S. in HCI, please contact Kathy Colman, Recruitment
