Evaluating Interactive Solutions
Date: 1 Aug, 2 Aug 2022 | 9am – 5.30pm | Online
Duration: 2 Days
This course covers the both qualitative and quantitative evaluation methods for user interfaces and interactions. It will include both rapid evaluation techniques such as heuristic evaluations, paper prototyping, wizard of oz evaluations, as well as the more rigorous controlled studies. It will also teach both qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques including thematic analysis and statistical tests.
This course is part of Professional Certificate in User Interface Design.
The course provides the participant with the knowledge and skills to:
- oversee the conduct of usability testing to validate user interfaces and interactions
- evaluate the effectiveness of user interfaces and interactions in meeting user needs and requirements
- analyze the effectiveness of UI designs based on performance indicators and propose recommendations
- analyze results of UI evaluations for improvements
Who Should Attend
Must have taken and passed:
- Introduction to UXD course and
- Designing for Experiences by crafting appropriate Cognitive, Social and Motional Events” course Or
- Required years of experience in UI Design related roles and/or customer/client-facing roles: 1 year.

I am passionate about improving human experience when interacting with computers. I am interested in looking beyond the specificity of individual projects to discover the more fundamental research problems, and then to develop generalizable strategies to solve these problems. Looking beyond, I am interested in developing the next generation of interaction paradigms so that we can leverage the full range of human capabilities. I am also interested in combining HCI with AI to create intelligent user experiences.
