The terms "UX" and "UI" are often used interchangeably. They actually refer to two related-but distinct-disciplines, each with its own set of concerns, skill sets and outcomes. In this introductory course, suitable for design students, managers, developers, employers, and anyone curious about design, we will explore the differences, overlaps and relationships between UI and UX through a fluid combination of lectures, discussions and design exercises.
NOTE: All students with an active registration in this online course will be given free access to the Adobe Creative Cloud. This course is fully online and offered through a combination of synchronous as well as asynchronous lectures and discussions. Students are invited to attend regularly scheduled online sessions during the listed course hours.
