User Design Experience (Fall 2014)

Interactive Design and Marketing Online

Have you ever used a website or app that makes it hard to do what you want? This class explores the UX Design process and leverages it to bridge the gap between functionality and aesthetics, creating a better experience for your users.

Guided by user-centered design processes, students will design visual and experiential systems for web and mobile apps that are shaped by such things as: stakeholder interviews, requirements gathering, usability testing, and competitor benchmarking.

In the process, visuals such as user environment diagrams, customer experience maps, user scenarios, personas, wireframing, and prototypes will be developed to communicate and generate ideas. / Open to students ages 18 and above.

Prerequisite Class: Web Design: Principles.

Required Textbook: Designing for the Digital Age, Goodwin (ISBN: 0470229101).
