Description

While teaching web classes, I found many students are seeking their career as a ux designer, but don’t know where to start. As a one who seeks the same career path, I’ve decided to work with these students to help developing their ideas by giving them resources to accelerate the process as well as creating a community to share ideas. Personally, I believe learning how to communicate ideas with others is the most important qualification of ux designer. This class will be consist of half presentation and half discussion among peers and we will try to figure out what’s the best way to communicate your project ideas with others.

And If you are curios about UX Design qualification, here is an interesting article about it.

Requirement

Students must attend all classes and arrive on time to the start of class. Respect your fellow students' questions and comments. Be 'here'. Participate in class. Assignments are given for each class to practice and try out recent topics. All assignments are required and must be completed. Stay in touch - please email me if you need to miss class or need extra help.

Week 1 : Bring Your Project Idea

We are going to start with your project idea and we will be given an opportunity to share your ideas with your collegues. Be prepare to communicate your idea in any format. It could be a video, web page and ppt. Select the medium wisely.

Week 2 : Start a group project

From the week 1 feedback, we decided to work on a group project. You have to bring your research about the project we are going to work on. Also, we are going to play a simple role playing board game to understand the problem we are targetting.

Sketch is an emerging tool for Design as a replacement for photoshop & illustrator. I strongly recommend you to try this. Once you start working with Sketch 3, there is no way back to photoshop or illustrator.
