Important UX Design Course Information

  • Requirements

    Some familiarity with the application development and design process is assumed.
  • Recommended Experience

    This course benefits anyone involved in the creation of User Interfaces for web-based applications: designers, developers, project leads, and business systems analysts. This course will help you to understand the value of UX design, the input stakeholders must provide to the process, and what results they can expect.
  • Course Materials

    Designing for the mobile environment is much more complicated than reducing the size of applications in order to fit a smaller screen. Leveraging the ways that users can interact with their mobile devices and the type of tasks that users perform must be taken into account when designing user interfaces for specific environments. This course addresses these issues along with the physical limitations of working with a screen that fits in the palm of your hand. For specific direction on how to design user interfaces that follow the guidelines for a particular device or operating system, this course recommends (and shows you where to find) the UI guidelines for those devices and operating systems. This course does discuss where those guidelines fit into the process and how to use those guidelines effectively.
  • Software

    We will be using Axure as the wireframing/prototyping tool for the course exercises.
