Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


Over the past few years, as graphics and imagery have come to dominate our popular modes of communication, interactive multimedia and WWW developers and users have become keenly aware of the interplay between these visual elements and the cognitive functioning of the interface. This tutorial explores the various facets of this relationship. As a result, participants of this tutorial will gain a better understanding and a working knowledge of how the components of visual interface design work in concert with the cognitive demands of an interface. They will be able to design or direct the design of functional and visually appropriate interfaces for multimedia, websites, courseware and/or training modules.
