In an age of ubiquitous computing it is essential that Interaction Design be based on the rich foundation of HCI research and knowledge. The Resonant Interface does that and more. It moves beyond the traditional scope of human-computer interaction (HCI) and is based on the concept of active learning that integrates theory and practice. Each chapter begins with a discussion of a particular HCI topic or concept that is then explored and put into perspective for interface design. The topics are then set in a design scenario using authentic interface problems and solutions. With a practical, engaging style, author Steve Heim moves beyond a focus on research findings and extends student learning into the processes of building usable interfaces for software and Web sites.
