What you’ll learn on the course

This course is aimed at people who want to make better websites, web apps, mobile software or desktop software.

  • Improve the usability of your interactive product or service
  • Create wireframe prototypes and run usability tests
  • Use user-centred design techniques to build a solid design process which generates better results

There’s lots of practical work, with a chance to try out every major step in the user-centred design process. Exercises are based on preparing two interactive products in two teams. Each team designs a product, drawing on members of the opposite team to act as usability test subjects.

Past exercises have included a social networking service, a computer-buyers’ website and a mobile-device-based tracking tool.

“The info was very practical, I knew how to apply what we’ve learned at our company immediately.” Lindie Vermaak, Clickatell

“You had a perfect match between practical and theory. In some courses they try so hard to be practical that they forget to teach you new things.” Annel Malan, e.tv
