User Interface Analysis Course
User Interface Analysis is a 4-week online course designed to teach you how to gather and analyze information used in the design of user interfaces. User-centered analysis is the first step in the design of a good user interface. This course gives you the tools you need to analyze user requirements.
Anyone who has ever tried to program a VCR has probably experienced bad user interface design. So how can you avoid these interface disasters in your own projects? How do you ensure that your product will meet user expectations? What types of analysis can you do to avoid mistakes? This course examines these issues and teaches you how to perform user interface analysis.
In this course, you will gain an understanding of the overall user interface design process by learning how to conduct secondary research, how to conduct user role, function and task analysis, and how to produce the required outputs from those activities. By the end of this course, you will have completed a complete analysis of user requirements, and written reports that document the user requirements for a product.
