UX-WAD: The Science and Art of Effective Web and Application Design

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Designing intuitive and effective user interfaces is both science and art. During this course, participants will learn how to apply research-based and field-tested Web and application design principles and methodologies.

Initially they will focus on the four foundational layers of the interface: Navigation, Presentation, Content, and Interaction. Participants will then be provided with the framework and methodology needed to support rapid prototyping initiatives. Finally, they will extend their sphere of influence through the application of accessibility and cross cultural design methods.

What you'll learn

  • How to implement user-centered requirements into usable designs
  • How to integrate the focal points of design: Navigation, Presentation, Content, and Interaction
  • How Web site and application design strategies differ and overlap h

AUDIENCE

Those involved in the design and development of e-commerce, sites, informational and promotional sites, intranets, and applications

METHODOLOGY

  • A comprehensive student manual
  • Workbook and Resource Guide that contains:
    • Course exercises
    • User interface control selection guide
    • Glossary with annotations and illustrations
    • Quick reference job aids

COURSE OBJECTIVES

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

  • Identify, select, and implement appropriate navigation models used to build intuitive navigation structures
  • Make better decisions and recommendations to improve visual design, including: layout, color, graphics and icons, and text
  • Implement effective usability-based content organization and treatment methods
  • Ensure intuitive interaction through appropriate UI control selection and error and feedback design
  • Increase design efficiency using Web and application standards
  • Extend their UCD sphere of influence into the domains of user experience, accessibility, and cross-cultural design
