User-Centered Design for Web and Mobile – Planning Digital Experiences That Work for Business and Users

Whether you’re working on a new website, a website redesign or mobile app, it’s vital to put your user first. If not, your user’s digital experience is lost in the sea of existing content and online experiences.

Gain a clear understanding of the practical application of user-centered design methodologies. Learn how to prioritize outcomes and structure content in a way that creates the best user experience while still communicating core business messages and branding. Even if you’re not responsible for planning the projects you participate in, understanding these practices leads to more successful content and digital experiences.

Listen to Steve’s podcast on User-Centered Design.

This course can be applied to the Managing Digital Content Certificate.
