The aim of the course is to acquaint the students with the basics theory of the cognitive aspects of virtual environments, including definitions, background. It also covers the basic knowledge and research of colour perception and colour design.

The students of the course get to know the theory and practice of the basics of accessible WEB design. Furthermore, it also describes software testing methods based on the latest research. However, with the emergence of new computing paradigms and platforms, a review of software testing also becomes necessary. Universities and industry are looking for solutions to the problems currently faced in software development, where users' cognitive abilities must also be taken into account. Some of the current challenges are addressed in this course.
