EDD: Interaction Design Class 5
Areas like digital humanities are where interaction designers get hired. Digital humanities is the intersection of digital technology and humanities. Also many incubators invest in interaction designers for their ideas and provide managements and promote the ideas.
Gaming at an entry level is also learnt in this course. Entry level as in not 3d or 2d games but censor based games. There’s also animation but not at making movies level but interactive comics can be made. Service design is also a sector in which interaction designers can get into.
The curriculum consists of both studio, theory and studio+theory works throughout the 3 years. User research and data visualization are two important parts of the 3 years. It also consists of algorithm building, story telling which is an important aspect in any design, critical thinking, applications and website development and adaptability.
Three things I found really interesting that he said were:
- Have fun doing what you do
- Do something that doesn’t exist yet
- Anything that enables human conditions is technology
