Abstract

The objective of this course is to learn the fundamentals of user experience design, interface design, and database programming. Basic theories, methods and techniques from user experience design and interface design are applied in group design exercises.

Description

Understanding the qualities of user experience (UX) and interfaces to digital products, systems and services is fundamental in the broader field of digital design. In short, this area covers how we, as people, interact with digital technology, and how these interactions can be shaped to create a high quality experience, from aesthetic as well as functional perspectives. In addition, basic interactive products, systems and services generally utilize databases for storing data, and consequently, the fundamentals of database modeling are tightly connected with the area of interface design.
