  author={Jes{\'u}s Lor{\'e}s and Toni Granollers and Carles Aguil{\'o}},
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in Spanish university is a recent discipline. Moreover, its interdisciplinary nature and underdevelopment of teaching resources makes assimilation by students difficult. In this paper we present an educational experience based on a constructivist learning model of problem solving methodology it is put into practice in the subject of Introduction to HCI (INHCI), a compulsory course that currently forms part of the HCI curricula at the University of Lleida (Spain…

Software for Use - A Practical Guide to the Models and Methods of Usage-Centered Design

The most provocative material here is the coverage of the Internet--the book argues that many Web sites sacrifice usability for visual razzle-dazzle, and it offers ways to organize Web sites for better usability.

Requirements Engineering: Processes and Techniques

Tried and tested techniques such as data-flow and object-oriented models are covered as well as some promising new ones and are all based on real systems descriptions to demonstrate the applicability of the approach.

Common Industry Format Usability Tests

The objective is to raise the profile of usability in the procurement process, and to demonstrate the consequent benefits of acquiring products with increased usability, in an initiative supported by NIST and in co-operation with ACM SIGCHI.
