Course Description

From a user experience design (UX) and human factors perspective, this course will allow advanced students to explore the new possibilities and challenges related to the design of user interaction for visual and virtual media. Through the construction of digital media objects, students will explore the physical, psychological, biomechanical, and anthropometric concerns involved in constructing intuitive, effective and engaging experiences with digital media.


This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
