User Experience Design
Swinburne University of Technology
Run since 2008
HET213 introduces the concept of experience design and its importance in the design of a variety of digital applications. Often developers overlook the importance of the customer experience when using their products. Consequently, it is becoming increasingly important for companies to provide customers with positive user experiences through fundamentals like navigation, search, usability and identifying the needs of the real user as well as that of the business. The understanding & usability research skills and techniques gained in this subject, along with coverage of important relevant teamwork and project management skills will help students to design effective user environments for a variety of applications from retail websites to computer games.
