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.
