User Experience Design

Description

COURSE OBJECTIVES

This class aims at familiarising students with both the theory behind the discipline of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and the practical process of User eXperience (UX) design.

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Usability and the overall User Experience are crucial for the success of any digital product. This course takes a hands-on approach in teaching how to create useful, usable, and (well-)used digital products. Students not only develop an awareness and appreciation of the crucial implications of good interfaces in terms of overall system performance and user satisfaction, but also learn core skills needed in order to identify user requirements, envision interfaces and processes, and evaluate competing design options.

 

LEARNING METHODS

Students will work in small teams of 3-5 to drive a design project from start to finish. Core skills are introduced in hands-on classes, interspersed with lectures and discussions about the underlying theory.

 

EXAMINATION INFORMATION
Students will submit a number of reports describing their group project and possibly present these beforehand so to collect feedback from us too. No exam is required.
