There is an old English folk saying that goes, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." I have a different approach: Do something about the heat. The folk saying would have us accept the poor designs of the world. Why? After all, if people were responsible for the "heat" in the first place, then people should be able to do something about it. Is the kitchen too hot? Redesign it.

Wallace, Michael D. and Anderson, Terry J. (1993): Approaches to Interface Design. In Interacting with Computers, 5 (3) pp. 259-278.

The current literature on interface design is reviewed. Four major approaches to interface design are identified; craft, cognitive engineering, enhanced software engineering and technologist. The aim of this classification framework is not to split semantic hairs, but to provide a comprehensive overview of a complex field and to clarify some of the issues involved. The paper goes on to discuss the source of quality in interface design and concludes with some recommendations on how to improve HCI methods.

Patterson, Garry, Anderson, Terry J. and Monds, Fabian C. (1993): A Design Model for Multimedia Computer-Based Training. In: Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 1993. pp. 549-554.

The design of a user interface for multimedia computer-based training (CBT) courseware is arguably one of the most important areas within the overall design process for todays changing learning environments. A methodology for the design, implementation and evaluation of multimedia CBT courseware, called MIDAS (Multimedia Interactive Design Aided System) is proposed. The model is centered upon the use of high quality and creative instructional design embracing the changing technologies, coupled with clear principles of learning and cognitive psychology which enables usability evaluation. A set of design usability principles, rules for the production of multimedia courseware and an evaluation document for use in individual and institutional learning environments are discussed in this paper.
