Course summary

Course overview User Experience (UX) Design is a specialist and highly sought after skill which involves creating compelling user experiences which keep people engaged with computing products. Many systems fail because of problems with the user interaction, rather than problems with the underlying code. UX places users at the centre of the analysis, design and evaluation of systems. This course is ideal if you have some existing programming skills and want to get an in-depth understanding of users so that you can work with them to create technologies which offer positive user experiences. You’ll develop theoretical knowledge and practical skills as you explore the latest developments in this field, including website accessibility, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Child-Computer Interaction, and multimedia for learning. There is a vibrant international research community engaged in developing new methods and theories that underpin UX within the broad field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience (UX) Design. You’ll be taught by staff who are active researchers in this emerging field, giving you the chance to engage with the very latest ideas and technologies.
