5.0 out of 5 stars Best HCI /Usability Textbook for Web Design, Nov. 25 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: User-Centered Web Site Development: A Human-Computer Interaction Approach (Paperback)
I use this book in the classroom to teach the web usability
component of a combo HCI/web design course. It has many
examples, contains review questions that are reasonable for
students to use, and is very clear and precise. The color
plates are the best I've seen in a book of this type. I
highly recommend this. Because it is so clear and concrete,
undergraduate students can quickly grasp the material. Further,
the authors responded quickly to a question I had. Everything
you need is here, from foundational concepts rooted in
cognitive psychology, to complex social/technology issues
like privacy and globalization. And of course, guidelines
for working with colors, and fonts. The book draws on Gestalt
psychology and Constructivism to discuss layout, placement
and visual hierarchy. If you teach HCI, consider this.
