Study Notes

GUI Basics

  • The two basic parts of a GUI are:
    • Output devices (e.g., monitors)
    • Input devices (e.g., keyboards, mice)

Good Interaction Design Principles

  • The principle of discoverability focuses on making the purpose of software and its components easy to understand
  • Every command with the same name should do the same thing, ensuring consistency
  • Navigability refers to the ease of navigating through the interface
  • Intuitive interaction means the interface is easy to use without prior training or experience
  • A clear mental model refers to the user's understanding of how the system works

System Development Process

Step 1-11

  • Step 1 in interface design: Focus on understanding the user or client
  • Step 5 in system development: Unclear (no information provided)
  • Step 6 in system development: Unclear (no information provided)
  • Step 7 in system development: Involves testing and iteration
  • Step 8 in system development: Primary focus on maintenance and support
  • Step 9 in system development: Main objective is implementation
  • Step 10 in system development: Primary focus on deployment and delivery
  • Step 11 in system development: Primary focus on evaluation and maintenance

Operating System and GUI

  • The primary function of a GUI is to interact with the operating system
  • The operating system's purpose in the context of GUI is to manage hardware resources and provide a platform for running applications

Test your knowledge of GUI fundamentals and good interaction design with this quiz. Explore the basic components of GUI, including input devices and application windows, and learn about the seamless operation of the operating system in the background.
