Proliferation of play/pleasure oriented applications, such as games, social computing, art, has pushed interaction design from just being usability to more designing for experience/pleasure focused. In this unit students will learn how positive experience can greatly affect the success of a product, service or system. We will examine different theories to help understand how attitudes, expectations and motivations of consumers play a significant role in acceptance and use of a service/product. Through designing artefacts, we will explore contemporary strategies to express emotion through a product and build affinity between a product and consumer.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Critically identify what constitutes an experience and how to deal with users? emotions;
2. Identify aesthetic practices and user experiences and analyse their role in the design for affect process; and
3. Apply relevant research approaches and industry practices to the designing and evaluating for affect.
Three hours of on-campus lectures, group work, practical exercises, user testing, design critique, reports and seminars per week.
