What You'll Learn

These courses are designed to get you exactly where you want to go
-- to a product that your customers learn easily, use frequently, and
love.

Discover techniques that will dramatically change the way you build
products, without requiring any more time, money, or people!

    PRODUCT USABILITY: SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES

+ Use rapid iterative design to keep your product on track with
  continuous measurements

+ Prevent common usability problems by focusing on a few proven
  design basics

+ Usability test a paper prototype of the product's design to get key
  feedback before any code is written

The high point of this course is our design competition. Using
everything you've learned, you'll build a fully-working product in
just a few hours. You'll apply your new-found knowledge and have a
blast collaborating with your peers!


    TECHNIQUES FOR COMPLEX APPLICATIONS

+ Gather information on how your users work and what constraints your
  design needs to address

+ Partition a feature-rich product to meet the needs of different
  users

+ Design your interface for both ease of learning AND productivity

+ Identify the bottlenecks that hamper your development process

Both courses are taught by Jared M. Spool and Tara Scanlon,
recognized experts in software usability.
