Methodologies and UX Processes:
this course introduces students to the fundamentals of User Experience (UX) design and the processes involved in designing interactive products. It covers the principles, methodologies, and processes of UX design, teaching students to apply human-centered design and design thinking methods to create effective user experiences using empathy at the core. Starting with research, learners engage in heuristic analysis, develop information architecture, generate sitemaps, conduct card-sorting, create personas, map user journeys, draft use cases and scenarios, identify user flows, and delve into wireframing and low-fidelity prototyping.

Web & mobile user experience design: this course empowers students to design user-focused interfaces in a professional format. It covers the core principles and distinctions in designing for web versus designing for mobile. Students learn to identify, focus, and improve interaction design, information architecture, usability, and user journeys. Leveraging an iterative process rooted in human behavior, psychology, mental models, and cognitive science, they acquire the skills to design purposeful and context-aware interfaces.

Designing intuitive user interfaces for web & mobile: in this course, students delve into the essentials and industry standards of user interface design (UI). It emphasizes the pivotal role of UI and provides an overview of its fundamental theories and concepts. The course facilitates the discovery of UI elements and components, along with the main tools and techniques used. Students gain proficiency in methods for analyzing, critiquing, designing, and tailoring user interface solutions for both web and mobile applications as well as heuristic evaluation to reflect and measure business, users, and usability goals.

Conducting usability testing and optimization: This course tackles usability testing and optimization as methods to evaluate and enhance the user experience. With a focus on achieving ease of use, efficiency, effectiveness, and user satisfaction, students learn how to plan, test, and optimize the usability testing for the interface or product at hand.
