How user-friendly is a website and how can we test it?

Students learn the criteria of what a good website should look like, design their own prototypes based on these and afterwards carry out usability tests.

Virtual reality will increasingly be used in the future, and not just for games. In the MCI - Man-Computer-Interaction course, the various possibilities of  virtual reality will be tested.
