DES 3890 - Advanced Interaction Design

Credits: 4
Formerly: UX Design
In this advanced, project-based course students explore the design and development of interactive experiences and interactions. Interaction Design (IxD) explores the “dialogue” between a person and a product, system, or service-which can include games, interactive websites, apps and interfaces. Oftentimes these experiences and interactions are dynamic, meaning that they use data or sensory input to provide information, feedback, expression or experience to the user in an engaging way. This course explores Interaction Design in both theory and practice while also exploring User Experience Design (UX) and Information Architecture (IA). This class may optionally be team-based, experiential or team taught. Classes include short lectures, critique, discussion of reading and writing assignments, software demonstrations, and in-class studio work. Students are expected to work outside of class to finish projects.
Prerequisite(s): DES 3860 , or permission of the instructor.
