Assignment 3: Direct Manipulation

Assignment 3: Direct Manipulation Due Week 8 and worth 80 points

Early computer systems relied on command line interfaces to perform
all actions. Today, the majority of systems use direct manipulation
rather than a command line interface. The goal of designing a direct
manipulation interface is to make use of the system intuitive to the end
user. One industry that has been extremely successful designing
intuitive direct manipulation inputs is the video game industry. Most
game players are able to learn controls as they play a game and then
apply the same controls to similar games. Rarely do they need to read a
user manual.

Describe the three (3) principles of direct manipulation and give examples as to how they are used in video game controls.Analyze
video game-type interfaces and discuss three (3) reasons why video
game-type interfaces would not be effective for real-world applications.Describe at least three (3) advantages of direct manipulation versus command line interfaces.Evaluate direct manipulation and describe three (3) problems with it.Use

Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
