OpenHCI — Open resource to learn about Human-Computer Interaction

OpenHCI is an upcoming open guide to introduce the body of Human-Computer Interaction knowledge to the beginners. It aims to create a crowdsourced collection of topics and examples pertaining to HCI. HCI or Human-Computer Interaction is a field of research, that studies the design and use of computer technology, focused on the interfaces between people and computers. Researchers in the field of HCI observe the ways in which humans interact with computers and design technologies that let humans interact with computers in novel ways.

OpenHCI serves to be an open-source repository intending to capture what it means to study, research or contribute to the field of Human-Computer Interaction. Given its focus on end-users, interfaces, technology, and the creation and use of novel tools, Human-Computer Interaction challenges and enhances human experiences in various contexts.

It may be wise to recognize that while HCI at present is popular amongst Computer Science majors and Design Researchers, the development of the field is not restricted to just these fields and must be made familiar and accessible to anyone who enhances human experiences through research or creation. That being said, my approach to the same was to come up with a way in which this idea may be represented effectively.
