Towards a unified view of intuitive interaction : definitions, models and tools across the world
Blackler, Alethea Liane & Hurtienne, Jorn (2007) Towards a unified view of intuitive interaction : definitions, models and tools across the world. MMI-Interaktiv, 13(2007), pp. 36-54.
Two previously independent approaches to investigating intuitive interaction in Aus-tralia and Germany are described and compared. Both definitions are based on the literature and so agree very closely, involving the non-conscious use of prior knowl-edge for intuitive interaction. Models have been devised by both groups: a continuum of intuitive interaction and a continuum of prior knowledge. Although there are points of difference in the models it is found that these are minimal and that the models are complementary. Tools like design methodologies, design principles, questionnaires, and an online database have been devised by the two groups that can contribute to helping designers in making user interfaces more intuitive to use.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
