The course will also expose you to the multi-disciplinary nature of the user experience design process, design thinking, and the steps you can take to succeed. The course covers methods and strategies of six overlapping phases: problem identification, information collection, idea generation, prototyping, evaluation/testing, and implementation.
You will practice with assignments and through team discussions. Some assignments require high-fidelity design of Web applications.
Skills Needed: "Adobe Illustrator, Introduction" (can be taken concurrently), or access to and experience using a drawing application (e.g. Adobe Illustrator, Fireworks, Google Drawings, OmiGraffle, Sketch, or a similar program). Knowledge of image processing applications such as Adobe Photoshop and ability to draw flowcharts and basic visual elements are highly recommended. The drawing is to communicate product design in high fidelity graphics.
