(crosslisted) COMM 3450  
Fall, Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Co-meets with INFO 5355 .

Fall: G. Leshed; Spring: Q. Yang.

This course focuses on user experience design (UX) and the life cycle of interface design from the user perspective. We will discuss key aspects of the human-centered design process: understanding, analyzing, and formalizing user needs, exploring possible design solutions to address user needs, creating prototypes to externalize design ideas, and evaluating the usability of these prototypes.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to appraise the human-centered design cycle and human-computer interaction design concepts.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to build practical skills required to apply the human-centered design process in technology design through class activities and a semester-long project.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to design a user interface in a semester-long project, including interim milestones that walk the students through the specific stages of the design process.

Outcome 4: Students will be able to develop teamwork skills through a semester-long group project.
