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.
Unlike many lynda.com courses, we do not have exercise files. But we do have demonstration websites for the original and improved versions, so that you can experience them for yourself. These are not complete websites and are for demonstration only, so many links do not work and features may not be available. These sites are intended to be viewed in conjunction with this course and following the customer's scenario we just described. From the Hansel and Petal landing page, you may visit the 3 demonstration website and link back to this course.
The three demo sites are the original site, which had interaction design problems and two versions of the improved site, each with their own way of building a custom bouquet. For your convenience, we've added hidden links to the copyright notice in the footer of all of the demonstration websites as a quick way to return to this landing page.
