A well-designed User Interface (UI) results in highly engaged and satisfied users. In this training course, you will create an optimal User Experience (UX) that merges functionality and usability in both desktop and mobile environments, as well as leverage interaction scripts, information architecture, wireframes, and interactive prototypes to implement an effective UX design process in your organization.

You Will Learn How To

  • Generate a User Experience (UX) that integrates the needs of the user with the application
  • Design personas and stories that drive User Interface (UI) design
  • Leverage models and UX design patterns to develop a functional design
  • Mold your design to gain acceptance and improve productivity
  • Test UX designs to determine effectiveness in meeting user goals

Important Course Information

  • Requirements

    Some familiarity with the application development and design process is assumed.
  • Recommended Experience

    This course benefits anyone involved in the creation of User Interfaces for web-based applications: designers, developers, project leads, and business systems analysts. This course will help you to understand the value of UX design, the input stakeholders must provide to the process, and what results they can expect.
  • Course Materials

    Designing for the mobile environment is much more complicated than reducing the size of applications in order to fit a smaller screen. Leveraging the ways that users can interact with their mobile devices and the type of tasks that users perform must be taken into account when designing user interfaces for specific environments. This course addresses these issues along with the physical limitations of working with a screen that fits in the palm of your hand. For specific direction on how to design user interfaces that follow the guidelines for a particular device or operating system, this course recommends (and shows you where to find) the UI guidelines for those devices and operating systems. This course does discuss where those guidelines fit into the process and how to use those guidelines effectively.
  • Software

    We will be using Axure as the wireframing/prototyping tool for the course exercises.
