Detailed Analysis

CourseMarks Score®

8.9 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

9.9 / 10
This course was last updated on 3/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

8.4 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (4.7/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

7.9 / 10
Video Score: 8.3 / 10
The course includes 4h 37m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
The average video length is 4 hours 54 minutes of 34 User Interface courses on Udemy.

Description

Did you know that about 50 % of your development time and cost of a software project are dedicated to user interface engineering? Depending on what kind of project you are working on, in absolute numbers, that might be a lot! Fact No. 2: Providing a good user interface is the top-most important acceptance criterion that makes interested people become customers. Still not sure? Fact No. 3: Creating a good user interface does not only mean to implement a UI that works and is fast. It also has to provide a satisfying user experience – which, to be honest, highly depends on the individual user than on your programming skills.
You see: Engineering a great user interface is nothing that can be done purely within your team and by your programmers. You inevitably have to involve real potential users in one way or another. And that is the crucial part: How can you do that? You do not want to disturb your programmers during their work. You do not want to let development cost and time effort explode.
But: You want to involve users into your UI design process as efficiently and effective as possible!
This course will show you how! This course introduces you to the concept of User-Centred Design (UCD). Maybe you already know what Cooperative, Participatory or Contextual Design is. If so: UCD takes inspiration on these principles and combines the approaches to one efficient and improved process.
You will learn how the UCD is structured, how the phases of UCD are performed and what specific methods are available to make your software project user-centred. Furthermore, you will learn how to integrate the UCD process into existing software development processes, such as the widely used agile development strategies as well as into classic spiral-model-based or v-model-based development.
Finally, we will take a closer look into techniques that you should know to implement UCD right away. We will take a look at: Hierarchical Task Analysis (HTA), Personas, Open and Closed Card Sorting, Paper Mockups, Hi-Fi Prototypes, NASA Task Load Index (TLX), System Usability Scale (SUS) and Cognitive Walkthrough (CWT).
After finishing this course, you know everything that is necessary to start designing user interfaces the user-centred way!
I would love to see you in that course and I am always listening to feedback to update the course according to your wishes. So feel free to enrol, take a look and send me a message if there is something you need more details information about.

More info about the instructor, David Gollasch

Computer Scientist and HCI/HRI Research Associate
As an entrepreneur in IT, computer scientist and thanks to my experience in teaching and research at university, I collected a wide range of valuable knowledge that I am glad to share with you today.My research interest is the field of software customisability, adaptivity and accessibility with a strong focus on user interaction with robotics (human-robot interaction as part of the human-computer interaction research community). Thus, I am currently working on strategies that help engineering assistants robots for people with special needs, e.g. the elderly or people with impairments. As robots are continuously advancing regarding their hardware, the software side is more and more becoming the bottleneck in this field which motivates me even more to work in that area. One crucial aspect that stands out here because of a very active research community, is the need for powerful voice interaction interfaces and systems that are able to really understand their users. Overall, a very dynamic research area with super motivating and interesting challenges.
