: An effective user interface design will focus on the user’s experience and interaction. While graphic design seeks to make the application physically attractive, the goal of user interface design is to help make the users’ interaction as intuitive as possible. This course will include techniques to fully understand what is required of the system to accomplish the goals of the project and the potential users. This course will teach students how to discern who are the users, what they need the system to do, how would the system fit into their normal work flow, and how to design the interface so it is functional, intuitive to use, and the look and feel style is appealing. It will also include stages and methods of review to insure the interface meets user’s needs.
Students of this course will return to work:
- Able to develop and document intuitive and functional user interface designs.
- Able to critique user interfaces and clearly articulate how they can be refined to improve the experience for the users.
- With an appreciation for the value of formal, robust system design to the success of the organization.
- With an understanding of how oft overlooked and undersigned system elements (e.g. user aides) can impact the ultimate success of a system.
