Course description

UX / UI Design: Zero to Hero

The goal of this course is to guide you through the essential UX tools and processes as user research, personas, user stories, information architecture, visual design principles, prototypes and different kinds of testings.

After this course, you will be able to confidently manage UX processes by proven user-centred design framework based on the usability standard ISO 9241-210. This standard encapsulates best practice based on BCS(The independent certifying organisation The Chartered Institute for IT). ISO 9241-210 has been created by a team of international experts, and that sets out the fundamental competencies of UX field. In this course, you will gain competitive experience in various questions that will be asked in the BCS Foundation exam.

In parallel (alongside with the theory) students have three (3) different kinds of practice activities:

  • Quick wins
  • Short physical tasks relying on particular topics; tests after the lessons in which students demonstrate their knowledge by solving various issues in different test scenarios
  • And the biggest activity lasting up to 40 minutes every day where students build an interactive product

By the end of the course, students have strong UX knowledge, prepared for the BCS foundation exam and showcase of their first product prototypes
