Course Description: This course covers cognitive processes (such as observation and processing information, and using and storing it), emotions, and their interrelationship. The focus is on the role of these phenomena in the design and use of Information and Communication Technology. Traditionally, cognition and emotion are treated separately in research literature. The mutual dependence of emotions and cognitive processes is however obvious, and clearly relevant for the design and evaluation of many computer applications: e.g., systems that help users making decisions in stressful situations, training applications where virtual characters show emotions, and games that are entertaining and educational. Also, in common applications emotions and cognitive processes of the user are involved such as when an application provides too much information, the user may make errors and get frustrated. A well-designed application, on the contrary, affords the user a pleasant working experience. The course is relevant for students interested in (applied and entertainment) games, and human-computer interaction in general.
