User Centered Development and Usability: Introduction It needs more than excellent code

It needs more than excellent code

In this course you will learn how to determine user requirements so you can provide solutions for your product’s interaction challenges that are both mentally satisfying and visually appealing. You will also learn how to uncover and estimate the effects of usability deficits and establish benchmarks so as to steer the GUI development for an optimum result.

With this introductory training you will not only understand the theory, but also take away tools and strategies you can directly introduce to your product development team. In order to tighten your newly gained knowledge, extensive exercises accompany the theory: We will develop an application from the first idea to user testing the final design.
