Abstract

The importance of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) education for software professionals should be evident and well understood, when designing Computer Science (CS) programs, at all levels. Unfortunately there is a lack of HCI courses in Chilean CS programs. It is difficult and usually highly bureaucratic to change curricula. It is only a matter of good will to make small changes in the courses' approach and emphasis. An appealing way to introduce HCI at all computer science curricula levels is by systematically including usability practices, especially usability evaluations.
