Ideen und User Experiences visuell erfassen und festhalten Ausführlich beschriebene Methoden und Übungen, auch für ungeübte Zeichner Sehr praxisorientiert, mit illustrierten Beispielen und ausführlichen Schritten zu jeder Methode In diesem praktischen Arbeitsbuch finden Sie alle Skizziermethoden für das perfekte Design! Skizzieren ist ein Mittel, um neue Ideen zu finden sowie schnell vorhandene Ideen zu erfassen und festzuhalten. Das kann eine Herausforderung sein, wenn Sie weder künstlerisch begabt noch in einem herkömmlichen Designbereich ausgebildet sind. Die Autoren machen Sie nicht zum Künstler, sondern zeigen Ihnen einfache Methoden, um Skizzen mit dem Fokus auf User Experiences zu erstellen. Zunächst erfahren Sie, wie Sie mit verschiedenen Übungen und Methoden Einzelbilder erstellen und welche Basiselemente eine Skizze enthalten sollte. So können Sie auf anschauliche Weise Ideen entwickeln, verfeinern und auswählen. Wenn ein Designer User Experiences skizziert, müssen seine Zeichnungen aber auch die Aktionen, Interaktionen und Änderungen der Benutzererlebnisse umfassen, die sich mit der Zeit ergeben. Die Autoren zeigen Ihnen, wie Sie Storyboards als Serie von Einzelbildern erstellen, die visuell erzählen, was in jeder Szene geschieht. Um die User Experience zu animieren, lernen Sie außerdem, wie Sie Storyboards in einen interaktiven Film verwandeln. Auch das Feedback anderer kann Ihre Arbeit wesentlich verbessern, wenn Sie Ihre Ideen mit anderen besprechen, austauschen und bewerten lassen. So erfahren Sie, wie Sie z.B. Skizzenwände vorbereiten und strukturieren, um anderen Ihre Ideen zu präsentieren. In Sketching User Experiences erlernen Sie anhand von Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen und Übungen verschiedene Skizziermethoden, mit denen Sie Ihre Designideen für User Experiences unter Berücksichtigung des Zeitaspekts ausdrücken können. Gemeinsam bilden diese Methoden Ihr Skizzierrepertoire: Sie erhalten einen Werkzeugkasten, aus dem Sie die beste Methode für Ihre Ideen auswählen können.

Designing Interaction

Psychology at the Human-Computer Interface

Designing Interaction, first published in 1991, presents a broadbased and fundamental re-examination of human-computer interaction as a practical and scientific endeavor. The chapters in this well-integrated, tightly focused book are by psychologists and computer scientists in industry and academia, who examine the relationship between contemporary psychology and human-computer interaction. HCI seeks to produce user interfaces that facilitate and enrich human motivation, action and experience; but to do so deliberately it must also incorporate means of understanding user interfaces in human terms - the province of psychology. Conversely, the design and use of computing equipment provides psychologists with a diverse and challenging empirical field in which to assess their theories and methodologies.

Semiotic Engineering Methods for Scientific Research in HCI

Semiotic engineering was originally proposed as a semiotic approach to designing user interface languages. Over the years, with research done at the Department of Informatics of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, it evolved into a semiotic theory of human-computer interaction (HCI). It views HCI as computer-mediated communication between designers and users at interaction time. The system speaks for its designers in various types of conversations specified at design time. These conversations communicate the designers' understanding of who the users are, what they know the users want or need to do, in which preferred ways, and why. The designers' message to users includes even the interactive language in which users will have to communicate back with the system in order to achieve their specific goals. Hence, the process is, in fact, one of communication about communication, or metacommunication. Semiotic engineering has two methods to evaluate the quality of metacommunication in HCI: the semiotic inspection method (SIM) and the communicability evaluation method (CEM). Up to now, they have been mainly used and discussed in technical contexts, focusing on how to detect problems and how to improve the metacommunication of specific systems. In this book, Clarisse de Souza and Carla Leitao discuss how SIM and CEM, which are both qualitative methods, can also be used in scientific contexts to generate new knowledge about HCI. The discussion goes into deep considerations about scientific methodology, calling the reader's attention to the essence of qualitative methods in research and the kinds of results they can produce. To illustrate their points, the authors present an extensive case study with a free open-source digital audio editor called Audacity. They show how the results obtained with a triangulation of SIM and CEM point at new research avenues not only for semiotic engineering and HCI but also for other areas of computer science such as software engineering and programming.

View: 9943

Chalmers kritische Reflektion über wissenschaftstheoretische Schulen ist zu einem Standardwerk universitärer Lehre avanciert. Seine Popularität verdankt das Buch der Tatsache, daß es Chalmers gelingt, die komplexe Thematik in eine auch für Laien verständliche Form zu bringen und mit zahlreichen Beispielen zu illustrieren. In dieser völlig überarbeiteten und erneut um einige Kapitel erweiterten Auflage bleibt Chalmers dieser Tradition treu. Er bietet nicht nur einen hervorragenden Überblick über klassische Ansätze der Wissenschaftstheorie, den Induktivismus, den Falsifikationismus, den kritischen Rationalismus sowie den sogenannten "Anarchistischen Ansatz" und stellt die Theorien von K. Popper, I. Lakatos, Th. Kuhn, P. Feyerabend vor, sondern geht auch auf neuere wissenschaftstheoretische Entwicklungen ein. Sein besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei dem Bayes'schen Ansatz, der Bedeutung des Experiments, den naturwissenschaftlichen Gesetzen und der Debatte zwischen "Realisten" und "Anti-Realisten".

Wir befinden uns inmitten eines epochalen Wandels im Kräfteverhältnis unserer Gesellschaft, denn während die Ökonomien den Schwerpunkt von industriegefertigten Gütern auf Dienstleistungen und Erlebnisse verlagern, treten die Unternehmen die Kontrolle ab und nehmen ihre Kunden nicht mehr als „Endverbraucher“ wahr, sondern als Beteiligte an einem wechselseitigen Prozess. Im Laufe der jahrhundertlangen Geschichte der kreativen Problemlösung haben sich Designer das nötige Handwerkszeug zugelegt, das ihnen hilft, die „drei Räume der Innovation“, wie Tim Brown sie bezeichnet, zu durchlaufen: Inspiration, Ideenbildung und Umsetzung. Seiner Überzeugung nach müssen diese Fähigkeiten nun über die gesamten Unternehmen verstreut werden. Und das funktioniert mit einem der innovativsten Denkwerkzeuge zur Entwicklung von Ideen und zur Lösung von Problemen, dem Design Thinking. Im ersten Teil dieses Buches wird ein Rahmenwerk vorgestellt, das hilft, die Grundsätze und Methoden zu erkennen, die großartiges Design Thinking ermöglichen. Hier wird gezeigt, wie Design Thinking von einigen der innovativsten Unternehmen der Welt praktiziert wurde und zu bahnbrechenden Lösungen inspiriert hat. Der zweite Teil soll dazu anregen, nicht zu kleckern, sondern zu klotzen. Anhand drei großer Bereiche der menschlichen Aktivität – Unternehmen, Märkte und Gesellschaft – zeigt Tim Brown, wie aus dem Design Thinking heraus Wege entstehen können, um Ideen zu entwickeln, die unseren heutigen Herausforderungen gerecht werden. Dabei muss sich das Design Thinking in den Organisationen „aufwärts“ bewegen in die Nähe der Vorstandsetagen, wo strategische Entscheidungen getroffen werden. Denn Design ist zu wichtig geworden, als dass man es allein den Designern überlassen sollte. Tim Brown zählt zu den prominentesten Personen auf dem Gebiet von Design und Innovation weltweit. Er ist CEO und Präsident von IDEO, das Unternehmen, das die Apple-Maus und den Palm V entwickelt hat. Tim Brown spricht regelmäßig über den Wert des Designs und von Innovationen, unter anderem auf dem Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos oder bei TED Talks. Er berät zahlreiche Fortune 100 Unternehmen. Seine Arbeiten wurden bereits in der Axis Gallery in Tokio, dem Design Museum in London und dem MOMA in New York ausgestellt.
