User interfaces and usability

Individual course

Do you have the basics of programming (or even more advanced knowledge) well in hand and would like to learn more about the design principles of user interfaces?

In this course, we cover design principles of web-based and mobile interfaces. When designing, we will use techniques that include use cases, prototyping, storyboarding and usability evaluation. Additionally, we apply methods for understanding users through basic HCI research methods and applying this knowledge in design. Finally, we will review usability and user experience as concepts and relevant usability standards.

To participate in this course, you need to know the basics of programming, such as the LUT course Introduction to Programming. Course content consists of a series of lectures, recommended readings from the book, and interactive online work with peers that is facilitated by course staff. In the course, you will create a series of small assignments that cover theory (essays), practical assignments (design tasks), and interactive peer tasks that cover design with clients. Your knowledge will be assessed by a course project and an online exam.

This is a 6 ECTS course which means it requires about 156 hours of work to complete.
