One of the most important ways to impress potential employers is to show strong examples of your user experience projects. This final project course in the certificate program gives you the opportunity to bring all your skills together and create a site or project that demonstrates your abilities. You will seek out your own real-world client and work independently to complete your design project. Your instructors will be available to offer guidance as you carry it out.
By the conclusion of the course, you will have presented your design and implementation process, and will have produced a fully functional website or a front-end interface for a Web page to add to your portfolio. You can choose from development frameworks such as Bootstrap, Materialize, Foundation or SemanticUI, with guidance from your instructors. Current trends in website design patterns and frameworks will be discussed.
This project course does not repeat instructions of prerequisite courses. You should already have the skills needed to implement your design project.
