Prerequisites and Requirements

This class does not have significant prerequisites before participation. In lieu of readiness questions, the following bullet points describe the tasks you will complete as part of this class; you may use this description of tasks to evaluate your readiness to take this class.

  • You will analyze and evaluate user interfaces, both ones that we provide and ones that you go out and find on your own.

  • You will conduct needfinding exercises to uncover problems that can be address through HCI methods.

  • You will prototype user interfaces based on principles you learn within class in response to those needs.

  • You will evaluate your user interfaces based on feedback you receive from potential users.

  • You will revise your user interfaces accordingly and iterate on the prototyping process.

  • You will apply those principles to an emerging area of HCI.

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
