Category talk:User interface techniques
|WikiProject Computer science||(Rated Category-class)|
Articles are regularly being misclassified into this category, especially articles about:
- Design methodologies
- HCI theories
- Software architectures
- Specific computer applications
In order to avoid the need for regular clean-ups I've created an article to clarify the concept of user interface technique as it is currently understood by a vast majority of researchers and practitioners in human-computer interaction.
More work to be done
As I see it, this category can be improved by:
- Adding more interaction techniques. So far the list does not have many innovative interaction techniques (examples here), and 3D interaction techniques are absent.
- Cleaning up. Some pages here should be probably moved to the Widget sub-category. Some pages in the categories user interface and Graphical user interface could be probably moved / copied here.
- Adding subcategories. One such category could be "text input techniques". That would clean up the list a little bit. Other examples are "3d interaction techniques" and "visualization techniques". Also, we have here some high-level concepts such as metaphors and interaction styles (direct manipulation, attentive user interface, tangible computing). Maybe we should consider turning them into subcategories.
