This hands-on introduction to UX/UI is aimed at those who want to experience the development of user interfaces for applications, web sites, mobile applications, and information systems. COMP 1011 follows an iterative and agile approach focusing on User-Centered Design (UCD) as the motivator for product direction. Participants are expected to work within interdisciplinary teams, there will be an emphasis on collaboration, brainstorming, and the continued evolution of an interface concept based on UCD. User Experience (UX) encompasses a wide range of activities including User Interface (UI) design, Information Architecture (IA) and user research. Usability design and testing, tight integration and collaboration with software development processes are included in UX. COMP 1011 is required in the Computer Systems Certificate, CSC and is an elective in several other Computing programs. Upon completion, successful students will be able to incorporate user-centered iterative design principles and processes into a wide variety of IT projects.
