This course provides a practical workshop for exercising and improving the skills learned in https//extension.harvard.edu/academics/courses/sections/CSCI/34CSCI E-34 under direct supervision of the instructor. We work together on one specific user experience (UX) project to be selected by the instructor. The output of the class is a complete analysis of a UX design problem and solution. This course does not involve actual building of the software. Rather the goal is to produce a UX specification that can be handed off to the coders. In each class meeting students work for about an hour on a design item (persona or story). Students then present their output to the class for critique and analysis. The instructor works alongside students assisting as needed while also preparing his own solution which is also presented. Students may work individually or in groups depending on the number of registered students. We also hear guest speakers that present topics that enhance this project.
