課程概述 Course Description

課程概述如下:
According to the book description of The Design of Everyday Things on Amazon.com that “Even the smartest among us can feel inept as we fail to figure out which light switch or oven burner to turn on, or whether to push, pull, or slide a door. The fault, argues this ingenious -- even liberating -- book, lies not in ourselves, but in product design that ignores the needs of users and the principles of cognitive psychology." We will firstly discuss how and why some products satisfy users while others frustrate them and come up with some principles of cognitive psychology. With these principles in mind, we will run a redesign project to improve the mental model of the original design. Through this course, we will learn that good, usable design is possible.
