 Mobile HCI

Course 1: Mobile Interaction (Laurence Nigay, Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (LIG), HCI Group, University of Grenoble 1)

This course is dedicated to the new generation of interactive technologies that are part of our everyday life: mobile and ubiquitous computing. In this booming domain, the need for methods and models for designing useful and useable interactive technologies is crucial. The aim of this course is to explore the aspects of design of this new generation of interactive technologies, to understand the challenges and to review the new interaction paradigms including multimodal interaction, location aware interactive system, augmented reality and embodied user interfaces.

Course 2: Learning in an augmented environment (Thomas Vantroys, Benjamin Barbry, Yvan Peter, LIFL, Lille)

Pervasive learning can be enhanced by the interaction with an augmented environment that provides interaction means with the nearby facilities. This course will present the technological offer to integrate the “physical services” (uPnP, phidgets…) and how they can be combined to provide augmented learning activities.

Case Studies 1

Implement a treasure hunt for the discovery of the school or touristic place using e.g. GPS, RFiD, QR Codes. It is related to social event/relations. (Thomas Vantroys, Yvan Peter, LIFL, Lille, A. Bouzeghoub, C. Lecocq, S. Garlatti, Institut Telecom

Case Studies 2

A problem-based learning session is defined according to different pedagogical situations for which groups of participants will define an augmented learning situation. People do the pedagogical activity using an augmented situation we have prepared beforehand. Then they present to everyone their design and an analysis of what we provided so as to consider both technological and pedagogical tradeoffs and benefits. The pedagogical team could comment on the analysis. (Thomas Vantroys, Benjamin Barbry, Yvan Peter, LIFL, Lille).
