Usability Practitioners, Web Site/Intranet Developers, Application Developers, Interface Designers, and Project Managers, with the desire to explore and apply scientific usability research to their practical, daily work.

  • A comprehensive student manual
  • Quick reference job aids

Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to :

  • How good user experience (UX) design is dependent on a scientific understanding of how people function
  • How the key research-based models, insights and principles in the UX field impact design. This includes aspects of human
    • Vision
    • Intellect
    • Memory
    • Motor Control
  • Various methods that directly apply these models, insights, and principles to design of interactive applications
  • Variation in users that impact design
    • Individual Differences
    • Disability
    • Cultural Differences
  • Sources of research and insights for UX professionals
  • How to tell if you can believe the research
  • Pathways to excellence in the UX profession

This course provides participants a research-based and practical understanding of the foundational models and insights essential to the UX field. You will learn that you don't see the way you think you see. You don't make decisions the way you think you decide. You don't remember things the way you think you recall. And you don't move the way you believe that you move. Without this foundation, you will design based on common sense…which is often wrong.

Understanding human vision, intellect, memory, and motor function is the baseline upon which every skilled UX professional should build their career; we show clearly how each idea applies directly to design decisions. This course will help you build credibility and improve your results by giving you the knowledge required to present your ideas from a research-based point of view.

What you'll learn

We asked our top UX consultants which research findings and models they found most useful in their daily practice. Some findings were new, and the oldest went back to 1908. Taken together, they require a real shift in your understanding of how people function, and therefore a real shift in how you will design. These are the foundational models of the UX professional, and they will carry you forward as you continue to learn about the field.
