UX Class: User Experience for Mobile Devices and Touch Screens

UX Class: User Experience for Mobile Devices and Touch Screens

User Experience (UX) for Mobile Devices and Touch Screens Overview

Successful UX  for mobile and touch devices requires designers to consider user scenarios which often differ based upon the environment, posture, and motivation of the user at the time. In this mobile UX workshop participants map out specific uses and scenarios for mobile users, and then align those findings to UI suitable for mobile and touch devices. Mobile UX class participants also create and align a feature set that is specific to mobile use and bring it to life in sketches, wireframes, paper and interactive prototypes. Participants in this course should have completed the UX Design Principles course offered at American Graphics Institute or have previous education or working experience in a UX role prior to enrolling in this UX course.
