About this event

Introduction to UX: 

At its core, User Experience (UX) is defined as how someone feels about using a product, system, or service. Regardless of what we’re designing -- a website, an Android app, or a toaster--we all strive to make our designs useful, easy to use, and enjoyable to use. But how exactly do we make something useful, easy to use, and enjoyable? How do we know if the target audience is having a good or bad experience? This class will arm you with the essential tips to find those answers.
