  • Spring 2015

    IAT 452 Developing Design Tools

    Simon Fraser University, School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Vancouver, Canada.

    Course description: Introduces approaches to customizing and developing software applications as design-support tools to be employed in dynamic design environments comprising people, other tools, and their interactions in relation to the tasks to be performed. Discusses effective strategies for software development to find the best matching solutions for a given situation and applies the select methods in software design, prototyping, and evaluation. Makes use of software development processes, languages, and notations in representing design of the tools being developed. Experiments with contemporary systems such as drafting tools (CAD), authoring applications (for games, Websites, animations), parametric design-modeling systems, etc.; and searches their potentials to enhance design environments. Prerequisite: Completion of 48 units, including IAT 351 [source link].

    IAT 351 Advanced Human-Computer Interaction

    Simon Fraser University, School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Vancouver, Canada.

    Course description: Students will learn about and gain experience with a wide variety of interaction technologies, environments and architectures supporting user interaction with systems in work, learning and play. Applied topics may include, but are not limited to, collaboration and computers; ubiquitous and responsive environments; security, trust and privacy; networking; and distributed and heterogeneous interfaces. Emphasis is on practical experience, involving a group design/analysis project in advanced topics in human computer interaction. Prerequisite: Completion of 48 units, including IAT 265 or other approved second year programming course, and IAT 201 or equivalent introductory HCI course. Strongly recommended: IAT 267 [source link].

  • Spring 2014

    IAT 352 Internet Computing Technologies

    Simon Fraser University, School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Vancouver, Canada.

    XML technologies, databases and data mining are reviewed as means of storing and extracting knowledge. Server-client and service oriented architectures are examined from the perspective of building interactive systems. Web 2.0 technologies are reviewed, including peer-to-peer systems, social networking portals, and personalization technologies. Students apply conceptual knowledge by programming a web application using AJAX, servlets and a database. Prerequisite: REQ-completion of 48 units, including IAT 265 or other approved second year programming course [source link].
