RMIT University’s User-Centred Design unit, offered online by Open Universities Australia, has everything you need to get inside the heads of the people you will be targeting with your program.
The unit centres on making functional interfaces that are easy to use. You will study the tendencies of users to determine what they are looking for when they turn to the screen for information. In addition to consulting users’ habits, you will also explore the pros and cons of existing programs to determine the best design for your application.
You will then analyse this information to construct an optimal user experience. Prototyping tools will give students hands-on experience in designing these interfaces.
There are no prerequisites for this unit; anyone can apply.
