This completely revised edition, of the Handbook of Human-Computer Interaction, of which 80% of the content is new, reflects the developments in the field since the publication of the first edition in 1988. The handbook is concerned with principles for design of the Human-Computer Interface, and has both academic and practical purposes. It is intended to summarize the research and provide recommendations for how the information can be used by designers of computer systems. The volume may also be used as a reference for teaching and research. Professionals who are involved in design of HCI will find this volume indispensable, including: computer scientists, cognitive scientists, experimental psychologists, human factors professionals, interface designers, systems engineers, managers and executives working with systems development. Much of the information in the handbook may also be generalized to apply to areas outside the traditional field of HCI.It can be done with a questionnaire (often quite free-form) or by an interview (a telephone interview can be effective). For example ... Informants might be asked to fill out a template at regular time intervals, or after each episode. Each report is of necessity quite short, since people have work to do beyond informing the analyst, but in the aggregate, broad coverage is possible. ... Shadowing consists of following users during their daily work including, but not limited to, the tasks of interest.
