Interaction Design – Week 1

Interactive Design is the creating of interactive products that connect user and to technology to information

Interactive Designers have 3 questions they have to answer:

  1. How do you do?
  2. How do you feel?
  3. How do you know?
  • Various disciplines and design practices contribute to interactive design. They each frame the tasks differently

Interactivity:

  • relating to a program that responds to user activity
  • working together so the total effect is greater than the sum

Common interactions throughout the day: face to face, online shopping, vending machine, phone call

  • Different activities have different levels of engagement and abilities to react to us e.g. vending machine is less reactive and less engaging but a conversation is more reactive and more engaging
  • Data -> Information -> Knowledge -> Wisdom
