Selected Publications by CCP Authors and Users

CCP modules, and the CCP site itself, have been designed with careful attention to the educational challenges of the human-computer interface. Design decisions have been made with the goal of achieving optimal learning environments for users, based on studies from education, psychology, skills-training, art & design, and other sources. The following link will take you to a "text" that presents basic principles of interface design in a condensed form that is easy to browse and interesting to explore:

Design Principles for Interactive Texts
