Every mobile app gives you something. It could be not only something tangible like the pair of jeans you’ve ordered using the app but also a piece of work like waking you up in the morning. It could be a feeling, for instance, a feeling of enjoyment obtained from watching a video clip or a feeling of closeness flashed out after receiving an old photo from a loving person via some instant messenger. That “something” is actually the reason why you use the app, it is the heart of the product, and in this course we will not talk about it. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. There are always two sides of a coin. There should be a person who makes that “something” accessible. It is astonishingly important because the use of the product loses its meaning if users can’t get what they want.
The main objective of the course is to teach you to shape mobile products and services for people’s use. To do that, you’ll need to learn:
— Interaction design activities and their place in the whole product design process
— User research methods with a focus on the qualitative ones
— Usability inspection and empirical usability evaluation methods
— The process of design creation and best practices from interaction design, information architecture and visual design fields of study with a focus on the former
Interfaces of handheld devices and tablets are in the spotlight.

This course was designed for those who are involved in creating digital interactive products (not necessarily for mobile) but do not have considerable experience in interaction design. If you are a UX professional in a junior position, a developer, manager or visual designer, this class is for you. This is not an introductory level course, so if you are new to the field, we recommend you take the “Introduction to User Experience Design” course from Georgia Institute of Technology before taking this one. Also, parts of this course such as the aforementioned process of design creation and approach to usability inspection can be useful for experienced designers.
