User Experience (UX) encompasses a wide range of activities including User Interface (UI) design, Information Architecture (IA) and field research. Usability design and testing, tight integration and collaboration with software development processes are included in UX. This hands-on course is an introduction to UX/UI for those who are creating user interfaces for web sites, mobile applications, and information systems, as well as those who want a better understanding of the role of UX/UI. Students will follow an iterative and agile approach focusing on User-Centered Design (UCD) as the motivator for product direction. Skills learned in this course will apply to web and mobile applications as well as IT systems interface development. Participants will be expected to work within interdisciplinary teams, with emphasis on collaboration, brainstorming, and continued evolution of an interface concept based on UCD. Upon completion, successful students will be able to incorporate user-centered iterative design principles and processes into a wide variety of IT projects.
