User Experience (UX) Basics Workshop (Online)

User Experience (UX) Design Basics Workshop will explore user experience in the digital and physical design worlds. This instructor will lead discussions on the importance of preliminary research, testing during the process of developing a design, and how to test and analyze existing designs, as well as UX roles and the artifacts they contribute during the user-centric digital design phase(s) such as wire framing, paper and clickable prototyping, card sorts and other testing methodologies. 

After taking this course, students will be aware of how UX can be utilized in a variety of settings and have a better understanding of how UX is used in product development. This course is for those exploring new career opportunities, those interested in learning what user experience is all about, and/or those that are wondering whether MCAD’s User Experience (UX) Design Professional Development Certificate is right for them.
