Abstract [en]

This is the 12th revised edition of a compendium used to introduce students to the area of interaction technology and design. In particular it has been studied in the first course of the Interation and design master of science programme given at Umeå University. 

The text introduces a system view on interaction design where the interactors are the human, information and the thing. A wide range of topics are covered with a system view. Examples are human perception and unique abilities, e.g. emotion, the difference between a human and a machine, what information is, and how humans can recognise it. A discussion on design takes up a major part of the compendium and includes both discussions on methodology and examples of state of the art technology application.

One goal with the compendium is to inspire further exploration in all of the areas.In total 270 pages of ideas and facts. Read it!
