Article review: The other side of the interface
This thorough, entertaining and particularly informative piece by reputable practitioner Andy Brice, explores ways in which graphical user interfaces, and the ways in which we physically engage with them, can make or break the overall experience. He does so by summarising how humans generally receive, perceive, filter, acknowledge and store information. Applying these theories to some simple examples allows the reader to obtain a quick overview into some critical ways to engage users in a brain-friendly and acceptable manner. The principles are valuable as they can be applied in any digital (or non-digital, for that matter) context, including the design of instruction and eLearning systems.
