I have decided to give you some extra opportunities to participate on the blogs. This will be based on material that I wanted to, but didn’t get an opportunity to cover in class. You are not required to participate, but remember that at the end of the semester participation will be 10% of your grade, so if you find it easier to participate on the blog then in class, this is an easy way to get credit.
Here’s my first question. As I have mentioned before, HCI is becoming very popular in organizations for the reasons we discussed this past Wednesday including costs, user acceptance, competitiveness, and innovation to list a few. For a long time though, companies were very hesitant to take on HCI into their design process. Can you speculate as to why people in industry were so hesitant to incorporate an HCI perspective?
