Learning Objective: build your app's prototype

The UX & UI Design course will enable students to collaborate much more efficiently with designers and developers throughout their career. It guides them through the process of designing a digital product (e.g. a web or mobile application): from understanding a user's pain to drafting a solution and finally building and testing an interactive mock-up. In short, students will learn how to build a product that responds to the needs of the market. They will also become familiar with the usual design workflow for any digital product (user research / wireframe / user tests / mock-up / UX analytics).
