English | ISBN: 1608450449 | 2010 | 124 pages | PDF | 1 MB
Experience-centered design, experience-based design, experience design, designing for experience, user experience design. All of these terms have emerged & gained acceptance in the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) & Interaction Design relatively recently. In this book, we set out our underst&ing of experience-centered design as a humanistic approach to designing digital technologies & media that enhance lived experience. The book is divided into three sections. In Section 1, we outline the historical origins & basic concepts that led into & flow out from our underst&ing of experience as the heart of people's interactions with digital technology. In Section 2, we describe three examples of experience-centered projects & use them to illustrate & explain our dialogical approach. In Section 3, we recapitulate some of the main ideas & themes of the book & discuss the potential of experience-centered design to continue the humanist agenda by giving a voice to those who might otherwise be excluded from design & by creating opportunities for people to enrich their lived experience with & through technology.
