Dave Hogue has been studying how people interact with digital devices and interfaces for over 15 years, and knows how design can make or break a website. In this course, he shares a hands-on approach to improving interaction design for a better user experience on the web. This course breaks down the components of an example site, from its homepage to categories, content, and the shopping cart, and introduces common customer scenarios that can be used to identify opportunities for improvement. You'll learn how to enhance navigation, gather feedback after interactions, manage content layers, and add features such as infinite scrolling, collapsible modules, and dynamic content to enrich the user's experience. Then compare the before and after websites to understand why these techniques make them more engaging and effective.
Where do we go from here? Well, Interaction Design is a big field and shares many methods and much information with other fields. Such as Visual Design, User Experience design, User Research, Content Strategy, Prototyping, and these others. If you're new to Interaction Design, focus on your course skills. Learn more about UX Design, Information Design, and Information Architecture, and become proficient with your design tools. If you're already working as an Interaction Designer, start to develop more advanced skills. And use the Research, Content Strategy, Prototyping, and even Coding. As designers, we are obligated to understand the medium in which we work. Just as a sculptor needs to understand wood or stone in order to carve beautiful statues.
With our information and with the machines around us. Now, take these essential principles of Interaction Design and put them to good use. Go create something awesome.
