Usability and User Experience Short Course


With more than 50% of audiences using mobile devices to access the Web, more and more website owners are developing mobile-first strategies for design, layout and content.

This course will go through Nielson’s usability heuristics, colour theory, navigation, website behaviour and a number of different usability elements so you will be able to critique your website with an understanding of the research conducted in this area.

In this practical workshop we will apply the theories learned in order to critique a number of different websites so we can understand which elements work from a usability perspective and which do not.
