In this course, you will gain an understanding of the critical importance of user interface design. You will also learn industry–standard methods for how to approach the design of a user interface and key theories and frameworks that underlie the design of most interfaces you use today. Through a series of case studies on commercial systems – many of which you likely use on a regular basis – we will illustrate the benefits of good design. We will also demonstrate how the costs of bad design can often be severe (in user experience, money, and even human lives). You will then gain a high–level understanding of the user–interface design process. You will be introduced to common design scenarios – e.g. improving on existing designs and starting a new design from scratch – and the general design processes that tend to be used for each scenario. Finally, we will begin introducing the large body of existing knowledge on design by providing overviews of core user interface design theories and concepts. This key foundational information will help you avoid “reinventing the wheel” when you are designing your interfaces in this specialization. The University of Minnesota is among the largest public research universities in the …

    Nice course! Goes in–depth for an introductory course and dives into specific. Includes a lot of examples that engages its students. Though i wish the examples were more Computer interface centric. Overall great explanation and nice assignments!

    I think this could be improved with more quizes and things to break up the video. Some of us struggle to stay conscious and attentive when things aren’t interactive. This would be a great help and also a good test of knowledge and understanding. ESPECIALLY please for the love of god put some quizes or questions in to break up vids that are long like 17 mins! (even, i’d say, break up even the 7 min ones. there is no downside to quick questions that test to make sure you are understanding the material)

    This course was kind of nice introduction to UI Design and thinking about what might be important for the users whilst using the product. Not only theoretical background was made, the course was pretty well structured and well completed with examples of known services (such as Netflix etc.), on which we could describe what is good and what might be better and why.
