This course is an introduction to User Experience (UX) design. The course will take theoretical and practical approaches to guiding students through the principles, practices, process, and tools to design usable, useful, and desirable experiences. Students will explore the methods for conducting UX research to determine needs, processes for designing products that meet those needs, and effective techniques for presenting designs to stakeholders. Throughout the process, students will consider the "why" behind each phase of the approach. The course will culminate in the application of UX best practices to build a functional prototype. Prerequisites: ICT 4505 Website Design & Development.
