> On October 15-17, 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
>
> analysis, techniques for visualization and paper prototyping, user
> testing
> and design iteration.  The techniques presented are particularly
> appropriate for design and development of media or graphical user
> interfaces, but can be applied to any type of user interface
> development
> as well.  Lecturers from various 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 on design, construction, and
> testing of a paper prototype, and multimedia forms of presentation
> are used throughout the course.
>
> This course is intended for participants new to user-centered design,
> or
> those at some intermediate level who wish to explore additional tips
> and
> methods for user-oriented design.
>
> UCLA Extension has presented this highly successful short course
> since 1991.
>
> The course fee is $1295, which includes extensive course materials and
> the text.  The course notes are for participants only, and are not for

> On October 18, 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
> course notes.
>
> This one-day course examines core competencies and "tricks of the
> trade" that all visual designers internalize as part of their basic
> design
> education, 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.
>
> UCLA Extension has presented this highly successful short course
> since 1995.
