The Human Factors and Interface Design concentration allows students to gain a deeper understanding of user needs and preferences in order to develop learning applications that are accessible and easy for the learner to use. Students will learn the various methods available for evaluating, measuring, and improving the way humans and computers interact. They will also be able to apply their knowledge of e-learning systems to real-world challenges.
Choose nine courses from general education, BS in Instructional Design and Technology, or other Walden bachelor’s degree programs. At least 55 credits must be at the 3000–4000 level. Elective credits should total 20 to meet the program requirements. Students may also be eligible to transfer previous credit to meet the elective requirements.
