Students will come away from this hands-on training understanding the principles for how to conceive and design intuitive GUIs/user interfaces for technology products.
Through examples we will practice a process for identifying and understanding end user requirements by developing user profiles/personas, scripting scenarios, and screen prototypes. You will learn task analysis and techniques for translating a user’s workflow into an intuitive information architecture and navigation. We will cover page design, layout best practices, form design and how to leverage style guides to achieve a consistent look across your product. Design principles will be taught through an analysis of the most innovative & popular applications across a variety of industries – education, consumer goods, entertainment, health care, and enterprise.
Throughout the training, each student will put their learning into action as they create information architecture, screen layouts for a Balsamiq-based prototype.
Students receive a workbook to serve as a reference. The workbook includes all class material and a detailed bibliography of UX resources so that students can continue learning after this course ends.
