Discover how to create a user experience that embodies utility, ease of use, and efficiency by identifying what people want from websites, how they search for information, and how to structure your content to take advantage of this. In this course, author Chris Nodder shows how to merge engineering, marketing, graphical and industrial design, and interface design to create a website that meets the needs of your customer, and is simple, elegant, and engaging. The course shows how to use graphics to help rather than hinder visitors, balance advertising and content, and integrate video, audio, and other media. Other tutorials consider the landing page experience and elements like contact forms from the visitor's perspective.
I hope you've enjoyed this course, we've given you the tools you need to create a great user experience on your website. Hopefully, now you're energized to try out the things you've learned and share them with others. We've put together a list of resources to help you learn more about the topic. useit.com is Jakob Nielsen's site. He is one of the leading thinkers in the usability space. He publishes a new article every two weeks and you can read them online or subscribe to his mailing list. uxmatters and boxesandarrows are both sites that publish longer form articles about user experience. They both have a rich archive of information and contributions from experts in the field.
The Usability Professionals' Association is the industry organization and they have links to lots of resources and also to local chapters that you can join to meet other people who are interested in the user experience. And I couldn't finish without mentioning my site; questionablemethods.com is a place where you will find ways to do quick, cheap, usability testing, to help you perfect your site. And if you do nothing else, I suggest you go out and usability test your site. Take a roll of duct tape and a pad and pencil and go out to where people work with your webpages. The duct tape is to go over your mouth, so you aren't tempted to interrupt.
The pad and pencil are to take notes of everything your participants do and everything they say while they are doing their tasks. You'll learn so much from watching just five people, that you will have enough design changes to keep you busy for weeks. It's a humbling and very satisfying experience and a great way of rounding out the lessons from this course. So, I hope you've had fun learning about user experience. Now, it's time to take what you've learned and apply it to the websites that you create.
