User experience is a broader way of looking at user interfaces. Rather than considering only what is on the screen or just the parts of an interface that a user directly interacts with, this mode of thinking about how users and systems interact takes into account how and why people do things. It also helps us to think about how people feel, consider their motivations, and attempt to understand their frustrations when we engage in design.
This project looks at integrating user needs, tasks, and concerns into our UX/ UI design work. Standard methods for evaluating UX/UI design will be presented, with a particular focus on usability heuristics, a proven approach to assessing and improving an interface design.
