A good set of CAI software depends on whether the interface design is appropriate. One has to take many complicated principles into consideration to have good design of interface. Current principles only tell designers major directions. Therefore, different designers have different results from application of the principles even for the same types of courses and pictures. Inappropriate use of principles would lead learners into troubles. Provided with more detailed sub-principles under each macro principles, designers will have better reference in designing. Teachers will have a set of more helpful software in teaching; students will have better experience in learning.
Having accurate anthropometry knowledge is important to industrial designers. This makes how teachers instruct students at school important. Chen Yi-wen (2003), as a result, designed a set of anthropometry CAI software to help teachers teach. The result showed that CAI software teaching was much better than traditional teaching. However, the interface was not as good as expected. Therefore, this research designed a set of anthropometry CAI software based on the organized sub-principles to enhance teachers’ instruction and students’ learning performances.
Subjects were 20 students at in-service master program of Industrial Design, Tatung University and the results are:
1.Subjects prefer the new software designed based on the sub-principles (organized by the researcher).
2.Regarding static anthropometry males did not perform well in five items — hand length, wrist circumference, maximal hip breadth (sitting), shoulder height (sitting), first phalanx length-digit Ⅲ.However, they do not have significant difference from those of Chen Yi-wen. Females did not perform well in seven items—stature, hand breadth across thumb, wrist circumference, maximal hip breadth (sitting), shoulder height (sitting), knee height, sitting, span. However, they do not have significant difference from those of Chen Yi-wen.
3.Under simulated situation, most of the measured items were significantly.
With more detailed sub-principles of interface design in mind, it does facilitate CAI software design. Learners will have better learning experience. Therefore, the sub-principles organized in this research can be a good reference in designing a set of teaching software that enhances learners’ learning performance and experience and effectively assists teachers in teaching.
