On May 7-9, 1997, UCLA Extension will present the short course,
"User-Centered Interface Design and Prototyping", on the UCLA campus
in Los Angeles.
The instructors are Penny Bauersfeld, MS, Human Interface Design
Consultant, and Kathleen Gomoll, MA, Human Interface Design Consultant
and Laurie Vertelney, User Interface Designer, Interval Research.
Each participant receives a copy of the text, "Software By Design", by
Penny Bauersfeld, and extensive course notes.
This course presents methodologies for user-centered design and rapid
prototyping to help develop effective, successful user interfaces. It
features hands-on experience in interface construction, including task
techniques for visualization and paper prototyping, user testing and
iteration. The techniques presented are particularly appropriate for
and development of media or graphical user interfaces, but can be
to any type of user interface development as well. Lecturers from
disciplines present their methods and approaches to interface design and
the way in which they focus on the user throughout development.
Step-by-step guidelines for interface design are presented with example
interfaces drawn from the lecturers experience. Course exercises focus
design, construction, and testing of a paper prototype, and multimedia
forms of presentation are used throughout the course.
UCLA Extension has presented this highly successful short course since

On May 10, 1997, UCLA Extension will present the one-day course,
"Designing Visual Interfaces", on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.
The instructor is Kevin Mullet, MA, Product Designer, Macromedia.
Each participant receives the text, "Designing Visual Interfaces:
Communication-Oriented Solutions", by Kevin Mullet, and extensive
This one-day course examines core competencies and "tricks of the trade"
that all visual designers internalize as part of their basic design
and how these specific techniques can be applied to solve real-world
problems in software design and product development. Participants have
access to instructor "recipes" collected from relevant specializations.
Hundreds of examples - good and bad - are drawn from print design,
product, and architecture, as well as the HCI domain, to illustrate the
problems and solutions described.
The course fee is $495, which includes the text and extensive course
materials. These course materials are for participants only, and are
Both courses may be taken together for $1495.
