This course covers the design, prototyping, and evaluation of graphical user interfaces by exploring topics like human capabilities, input technologies, heuristic evaluation, and design methods, principles and rules. We will learn how to design aesthetically pleasing user interfaces, covering important design principles (learnability, visibility, error prevention, efficiency, and visual design) and the human capabilities that motivate them (including perception, motor skills, color vision, attention, and human error).

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
