The practical course “Interaction in Virtual Worlds“ offers in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research an insight into applied research. Students in Groups (2 to 4) will work on a topic from the area of “Interaction with Graphical User Interfaces (GUI)“, which can be chosen by the students themselves. Based on real scenarios from the applied research, this practical course will offer the opportunity to apply different methods for creating User Interfaces in different contexts. The course will be closed successfully with the implementation of an exemplary User Interface or graphical visualization, whereas the scientists from the Fraunhofer, with their different expertise will support the students in their work.
The main goal of the practical course is to offer an insight into the practical work of an applied research institution, with the practical implementation and integration of User Interfaces based on methods of HCI (Human-Computer-Interaction).
