Multimodal Interfaces COMP 8022

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

Course details

​This course provides a hands-on introduction to combining different input and output devices for human computer interaction, with a focus on the application of concepts. Lab exercises and assignments are used to help student understand the differences in input modalities and display devices and learn when and how to combine different input devices to create effective 3D user interfaces. Topics include visual representation of data, tactile and gesture input, wearable computing, user body tracking, context-aware computing, and multi-modal and 3D user interfaces.
