Credits: 4
This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the user experience design process. Lectures and assignments will focus on creating experience for contemporary digital interfaces. Students will apply the concepts and techniques presented through lecture and reading for three distinct projects. Projects will explore user research, the definition of requirements, the design of information architecture, and interactive prototyping. Students will actively create experiences and practice presenting their ideas for iterative evaluation and evolution. Technology skills will be advanced, developing a better understanding of what technological standards are utilzed for the design of digital products. Design history and contemporary business practices will be discussed in reference to each project’s intent. Class time will include short lectures, software demonstrations, and in-class studio work. Students will be expected to work outside of class to complete homework, readings, and projects.
