As technology changes and more media outlets compete for customers’ time, providing an enjoyable experience is critical to both attracting and keeping users.
This 2-day intensive workshop aims to demystify User Experience Design by giving a practical and simple introduction to what UX is while also explaining some of its core concepts of usability. You'll complete hands-on exercises, brainstorm and collaborate with other students and go home with a digital prototype of a mobile app.
This is a field that affects all areas of business — prepare to dip your toes into an ocean of new concepts and ideas that will enlighten your perspective on the human-computer interaction experience.
