Also available athttp://www.jhuapl.edu/techdigest/TD/td2604/Gersh.pdf Computer applications that run on desktop and laptop computers have, for a long time, been designed to be driven by dragging and clicking a mouse. With the introduction of tablet personal computers, the trend has shifted toward using touch-based screens. We now have access to touch-based TVs, touch-based monitors, and touch-based laptops. Touch and multi-touch devices provide end users with the ability to interact physically with an application much more naturally. Imagine that you have been assigned the task of redesigning your company’s applications to run on all devices. Examine a multi-touch computer monitor and a mouse-driven computer monitor and think about how the end user interacts with an application running on each of these types of monitors. Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:


1. Compare and contrast the metaphors used in the design of applications that run on each type of monitor. Use Microsoft Visio, Microsoft PowerPoint, or any other modeling tool to create. 2. Differentiate between the interaction types and styles that apply to these monitors and applications running on them. 3. Describe the conceptual model employed in the design of these types. Describe the analogies and concepts these monitors expose to users, including the task-domain objects users manipulate on the screen. 4. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment.Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. You may use the resources above or others of your choosing. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:  Be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.  Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:  Describe the relationship between the cognitive principles and their application to interfaces and products.  Explain the conceptual terms for analyzing human interaction with affordance, conceptual models, and feedback.  Explain the importance of user abilities and characteristics in the usability of products.  Use technology and information resources to research issues in human-computer interaction.

When attention is applied to a design, the goal is to make it easier for the end user to quickly locate where he / she should type information on the computer or mobile device screen. Compare and contrast how the Google search engine and theMicrosoft Bing search engine employ the attention cognition process. Provide your opinion as to which


search engine better employs the attention cognition process and explain why.

CIS 375 Week 3 Case Study 1: Using Technology as Experience Framework

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Case Study 1: Using Technology as Experience Framework Due Week 3 and worth 50 points Download the case study titled, “Using the ‘Technology as Experience’ Framework,” from http://www.idbook.com/casestudy_5-1.php. The user experience framework can help designers constrain and scope the user experience of a given system. The user experience framework also informs about the relationship between a conceptual model and a user’s understanding of it for past, current, and future systems. The case study actually consists of two studies. For this evaluation, consider the first one by Heather Collins on an online fundraising Website. She used primarily the sensory and compositional threads of the framework, leading to insights on how fundraising organizations can maximize their Websites to tell a compelling story to a potential donor that is balanced in content and


emotion. Collins’ design combines elements of storytelling, appropriate emotional triggers, and a welcoming atmosphere to encourage potential donors to act by making a donation, volunteering their time, telling their friends, or attending a related event. Through this process, the donor can create a meaningful connection to a cause or problem directly impacting their community. The personal connection makes the online donation experience pleasurable for the user. Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you: 1. Explain how the Web user interfaces help donors to make decisions. 2. Relate the emotional thread demonstrated in the case study to the emotional design model as discussed in Chapter 5 of the textbook. 3. Explain how the compositional thread is used in the case study. 4. Use the user experience framework to create five (5) product evaluation criteria using sensory and compositional threads. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:  Be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.  Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:  Explain the characteristics of human-centered design methods.  Create a product evaluation through a formal framework.  Use technology and information resources to research issues in human-computer interaction.

Read the article titled, “Is social media ruining our kids’ social skills?” Provide your opinion on the effect that texting and social media (i.e., Twitter, Snap Chat, Facebook, etc.) are having on individuals’ abilities to articulate a face-to-face conversation. Support your opinion with one (1) example from your personal experience or an incident in the media. • Emotional interaction is a behavioral reaction that is reflected by an individual’s feeling when interacting with technology. Examine


the affect that the visceral design of a laptop has on an individual’s behavioral response compared to the affect that the visceral design of a smartphone has.
