General Information

  • The first exercise will take place virtually on Friday Oct. 22 (13:00-14:30) via BigBlueButton.
  • After successful enrollment we will add you automatically to the OPAL course at the beginning of the semester. Registered users will receive an invitation email to the OPAL course by October 13.
  • Find slides and further information in the OPAL course: Exercise User Interface Engineering (UIE) (only for registered users).


The accompanying exercise helps to deepen the contents of the User Interface Engineering lecture with practical experiences. Therefore, we will teach the development processes of an user interface in its various phases based on real-world application scenarios. The exercise focuses on the scenario-based design process, which is divided into the analysis, design and evaluation phases. All three phases are carried out, presented and discussed in small groups. Each team works on a project during the entire semester. The projects include different topics which requires the consideration of specific users, tasks and context. Finally, the main objective of the exercise is the development of an interface solution for the selected topic that involves novel, natural interaction modalities.


Links to the corresponding video conferences will be provided via OPAL during the semester.
