User Experience (UX) design seeks to improve the usability, accessibility, and pleasure a product or service provides by identifying the specific points of interaction. By adjusting these points, data can be captured, and improvements measured and replicated. Once you learn the basics, you’ll be applying UX techniques to all parts of your life.
In this unit, you will be introduced to concepts and principles of UX design: the application of design and development processes to enable desirable and effective human interactions with products, services, technologies and interfaces. You will learn about user-centric design — how to engage with end-users to co-design outcomes that are strongly aligned with their requirements, expectations and needs. Through case studies and practical exercises, you will learn how to apply these processes. You will develop a physical or virtual interface with features that personalise user experiences, and that enhance user satisfaction, usability (simplicity of use), accessibility (ability to access a service or product), decision-making, wayfinding and navigation.
