Designing intuitive and effective user interfaces is both science and art. During this course, participants will learn how to apply research-based and field-tested Web and application design principles and methodologies. Initially they will focus on the four foundational layers of the interface: Navigation, Presentation, Content, and Interaction.

Participants will then be provided with the framework and methodology needed to support rapid prototyping initiatives. Finally, they will extend their sphere of influence through the application of accessibility and cross-cultural design methods.

The course is led by experienced HFI consultants and includes in-depth discussions, challenging and interactive exercises, and fully documented student materials.
