DIGM13-100: Designing User Experiences

Description

Designing User Experiences creatively explores how users interact with technology, thus allowing students to design and evaluate digital solutions. Students will learn how to analyse and document the user journey, from need to usability testing, by focusing on the principles of user centred design. Students will apply their knowledge using industry-standard techniques, including wireframing, design patterns, prototyping frameworks, usability assessment tools, and Adobe Creative Suite to evidence their problem solving, and analytical skills through creative communication, teamwork and project creation.
