User Experience and Interaction Design

Course Details

Design is not just about how something looks – it’s about how it works. And that working (or not working) is what we refer to when we talk about user experience (UX), user interface (UI), and interaction design. As media outlets now depend on these users and compete for their time, creating better experiences is crucial to telling effective and useful journalistic stories. This class will build upon the foundations of design, layout and composition taught in Design & Presentation and allow students to explore more deeply the role of the user in their journalistic projects.
