Liebe Studentinnen und Studenten,

bitte nutzen Sie für Ihre Studienplanung vor allem TUMOnline. Vorlesungstermine und -räume sowie die Anmeldung zu Lehrveranstaltungen und Prüfungen finden Sie ausschließlich dort. Die hier dargestellten Lehrveranstaltungen sollen vor allem als Überblick über das Angebot des Lehrstuhls dienen.


Anmeldung Lehrveranstaltungen

Wir empfehlen Ihnen, sich im TUMonline jeweils zu den Vorlesungen anzumelden! Bei Lehrveranstaltungen mit Teilnehmerbeschränkung (i.d.R. Praktika) müssen Sie sich im Anmeldezeitraum über TUMonline anmelden.

An- und Abmeldung von Prüfungen

Es gelten für alle Studierenden die An- und Abmeldefristen der Fakultät Maschinenwesen (Stichtage 15.01. im Winter und 30.06. im Sommer)! Die Teilnahme in Nachholklausuren ist ebenfalls anzumelden!

Teilnahmekriterien & Anmeldung

Siehe TUMonlineSuccessfully passing the exam of "Interaction Programming Block Course" (first semester week) is mandatory. Please also sign up for the "Interaction Programming Block Course"


- know the user centred design software development process - design and create own interaction prototypes - assess the created interaction concepts by suitable evaluation techniques


Software products have, in order to be accepted, to fulfill the needs of the user, ensuring at the same time an ease of use. Increasingly new prototyping technologies are used for the interaction and interface design. Therefore, within the module “Interaction Prototyping”, the students are expected to develop user interfaces in different design phases like early paper prototypes and full-scale working interaction prototypes in software. The necessary programming techniques HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript are taught and practiced in the "Interaction Programming Block Course". In the "Interaction Prototyping Practical Course", the students will independently (in teams of three persons) create interaction prototypes for product-specific tasks that will be evaluated in a usability context.

Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen

All techniques (JavaScript, HTML, CSS) which were taught in the "Interaction Programming Practical Course" are required.

Lehr- und Lernmethoden

Precondition for participation in part II, the Interaction Prototyping Practical Course (taking place during the semester), is having successfully passed the practical exam (part I of the elective module, open book, first semester week). The user centred design software development process is presented by a lecturer during the contact hours. The design and the assessment of interaction prototypes is reached by biweekly practical assignments and their fulfilment in groups of three persons. The practical assignments will be assisted by tutors in appointments of one weekly contact hour per group.

Studien-, Prüfungsleistung

As an outcome of the Interaction Prototyping Practical Course, the understanding of user centred design methodology (the analysis, design, implementation, evaluation steps the groups undertook) will be assessed by questions during the final public poster presentation & prototype demonstration (30 min). This will be graded according to specific criteria (methodology, results, creativity, references, and applied prototyping tools) which are provided in advance. Each team member will be randomly asked methodological questions during the demonstration in order to assess individual grades. The functional understanding of the implemented prototype will be assessed on the basis of a code review (1 h during the regular tutoring timeslot) according to criteria (level of detail, usability, functionality, and applied techniques). Each team member will be randomly asked functional questions during the review in order to assess individual grades.
