Successful technological innovations, such as the iPhone, have highlighted the importance of usability – the ease of access and/or use of a product, website, or app. In order to design for usability, this subject provides an in-depth understanding of user interaction design theories, principles and practices. It examines user-centred design methodologies, particularly in the context of the user experience. Students will apply these methodologies to develop prototypes and a functioning cross-platform mobile application. Contemporary issues related to the design of interfaces for emerging technologies will also be explored.
