Course Outline

OVERVIEW
A positive and effective user experience is crucial to the success of an application. This course addresses the importance of identifying your users, using consistent and simple design patterns, implementing effective navigation and layout, incorporating media elements, using advertisements, and implementing user interface design strategies and tools such as Lean UX and wireframing. In this course, you'll learn principles such as Hick's Law, Pareto Principle, and Gestalt Principles in the context of UX design. In addition to design and behavior patterns, you'll learn how to use color and typography to optimize user experience. Finally you'll explore design approaches and frameworks such as agile and responsive design.
