Before the onset of the pandemic, we used to be able to visit public places, like library and cafes, where we could work and enjoy the atmosphere of having others around. But then the pandemic hit, and with it came remote work where many were forced to work in isolation. Most of the face-to-face interactions we used to have were replaced with telecommunication, and many of us began to miss working around others. Enter: Audo, a sound-based virtual coworking space that features an auditory environment and user interface informed by two phases of user research.
Students in Georgia Tech's interdisciplinary MS in Human-Computer Interaction program do multiple group class projects, and a capstone individual project. Some projects are presented as part of other labs listed here; others are showcased in the MS-HCI Project Lab.
The two-year program spans four schools: Industrial Design; Interactive Computing; Literature, Media and Communications (Digital Media Program); and Psychology. Approximately 50 new students enroll each fall semester.
