Module 1: Foundation of UI UX Design

UI UX is about understanding what it means to be a user of a  computer (which is more complicated than it sounds), and therefore how to create related  products and services that work seamlessly. This course provides a comprehensive  introduction and deep dive into UI UX Design, so you can create designs that provide outstanding  user experiences.

  • History of Computer Interaction
  • Design Principles
  • Inspirational Design Case Study
  • Design of Everyday Things (Reading summary of book)
  • Command & Natural Languages
Module 2: User Research & Methods

Engage in observations, interviews, surveys, and co-design  activities (among other activities) - Develop empathy with design  stakeholders. Produce reports whose outcomes have impacts on  design decisions. This module helps students develop empathy with  design stakeholders - looking at the project from their perspective,  in order to let go of the defensive and protective feelings that often  surround a project.

  • Engage in observations, interviews, surveys, and co-design activities
  • Develop empathy with design stakeholders
  • Advocate for stakeholders within organizations
  • Produce reports whose outcomes have impacts on design decisions
  • Project Work
Module 3: Information and Interaction Design

Designing meaningful relationships among people and the products they use is both an art  and a science. This module will focus on the unique design practice of: representing and  organizing information in such a way as to facilitate perception and understanding  (information architecture); and, specifying the appropriate mechanisms for accessing and  manipulating task information (interaction design).

  • User Experience Design Process
  • Information Architecture, Scenarios, storyboards, wireframing, prototyping
  • Tools learnt XD, Sketch, Axure, Balsamiq.
  • Designing for Small Screens with responsive design
  • Project Work
Module 4: Visual Design and User Interface Design

Visual design as a field has grown out of both user interface (UI)  design and graphic design. As such, it focuses on the aesthetics of  a product Visual design aims to shape and improve the user  experience through considering the effects of illustrations,  photography, typography, space, layouts, and color on the usability  of products and on their aesthetic appeal.

  • Graphic Design for computer interfaces with learn tools Photoshop, AI, Sketch
  • IOS & Android UI Pattern Study
  • Tools learnt Photoshop, Illustrator, Creative Suite.
  • Information Visualisation for Data Dashboard Design
  • Project Work
Module 5: Design Thinking

Design thinking is a powerful process of problem solving that begins with understanding  unmet customer needs. From that insight emerges a process for innovation that  encompasses concept development, applied creativity, prototyping, and experimentation.  When design thinking approaches are applied to business, the success rate for innovation  improves substantially.

  • Brainstorming Techniques & Affinity Diagrams
  • DT Process
  • Synthesis
Module 6: Usability evaluation

Usability Evaluation focuses on how well users can learn and use a  product to achieve their goals. It also refers to how satisfied users  are with that process. You’ll learn how to plan a usability test, create  test objectives, profile the user, select the right test, select the  environment, preparation for the test materials, and conduct the test.

  • Usability and Accessibility Standards
