|These pages provide a detailed description of a course for professionals who need to design user interfaces|
|Why do this course?||
|What you will learn||Through this course, you will learn how to design interfaces that are
usable by people. It is not a programming course; rather, you will discover:
|The Audience||This course is oriented towards a diverse audience. Typical attendees
|Course Structure||The course will unfold by examining specific aspects of interface design,
prototyping, and evaluation. Theoretical lectures will be augmented by case studies and
discussions of interface successes and failures. You will apply the theoretical knowledge
learnt to a series of examples that brings you through different parts of the design and
Topics will be selected from the following course outline.
|How to Take the Course||The course can be offered at your site. It can be delivered as is, or
customized to fit particular needs of the customer. Exercises can be developed to
illustrate methods that use systems and/or prototypes of systems being developed by the
customer. Contact Saul Greenberg Consulting for further information and for details about
