Introduction to UI / UX design

User Experience (UX) design is commonly defined as the process to design experiences and interactions with a digital or physical product that is useful, easy, and enjoyable. User Interface (UI) design is commonly defined as the process of designing this visual look of the product and the functionality of the interaction. In this module, students will be introduced to UX and UI design, the role of designers, and the design process. Participants will also learn industry-standard methods for how to approach the design of a user interface and key theories and frameworks that underlie the design of most interfaces being used today. To reinforce UX and UI design principles, students will assess and provide analysis on the design of an existing product and websites. Through a series of case studies on commercial systems, we will illustrate the benefits of good design. We will also demonstrate how the costs of bad design can often be severe (in user experience, money, and even human lives). Participants will gain a high-level of understanding of the user-interface design process.
