What will I learn on the course?

The course is based on content from the International Usability and User Experience Qualification Board (UXQB, www.uxqb.org).

The course provides an introduction to usability and UX in the areas of:

  • The human-centred design process: Usability maturity, UX in agile projects
  • Usability concepts and guidelines: usability, user experience, accessibility
  • Understanding and specifying the context of use: procedures for analysis, observation, interview, personas, scenarios, user groups
  • Specifying user requirements: how to write precise qualitative and quantitative user requirements
  • Describing user interaction: design, user journey maps, storyboards, low- and high-fidelity prototypes, dialogue principles, heuristics, guidelines, best practices in error messaging
  • Usability Testing and other evaluation methods: step-by-step approach in running a usability test, typical errors, heuristic evaluation, questionnaires

Exercises

The course includes about 10 practical exercises, including:

  • Prepare and conduct an interview
  • Sketch the context of use for an interactive system
  • Write qualitative and quantitative user requirements for an interactive system
  • Prepare and test a prototype of an interactive system
  • Observe a live usability test of a popular website

The exercises take up about 50% of the total time of the two-day course.

In addition to the exercises, the lectures are interspersed with typical examination questions to allow you to immediately check your understanding and to prepare you for the certification examination.
