  • “My first course at Noble Desktop was extremely relevant and informative! The class format was engaging and educational - I'm excited to continue learning more about the UX/UI field.”

    Leah Jarrett

  • “ I just completed the UX Fundamentals Class and highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about UX. The class gave a very comprehensive overview into the philosophy and process of UX, showed real world UX case study examples and then had us apply the UX process to our own class project. In the end I built a working prototype of an app that was based on and informed by me conducting actual user interviews, personas, journey maps etc etc.. It was a great experience to apply the UX process to building my app all while learning a new program- Sketch. The last class everyone presented their case study and app-very inspiring to see what some of my class mates accomplished in a 4 week period! ”

  • “When I entered the UX Fundamentals class, I felt that I was a complete newbie to the UX field. After I finished the class, not only was I able to finish a prototype that I really love, I'm most likely going to develop it soon.”

    Eva Schicker

    Eva took Noble Desktop's comprehensive UX Fundamentals course to learn all the major skills for user experience design.

  • “Before the class, I had minimal UX knowledge and no idea where to begin. My teacher, Jason, was nothing short of amazing. I started off in total confusion and left with a new way of looking at design. The class taught the logic of UX, my questions were all answered, and best practices were recommended. I learned while having fun with my personal project. There was a lot to learn in a short amount of time but it never seemed overwhelming. I highly recommend!”

    Rita Healy

Learn more about UX Design

User Experience Design Terms

User Experience (UX) Design
  • User Experience (UX) involves a person’s behaviors, attitudes, and emotions about using a particular product, system, or service.
  • Includes the practical, experiential, emotional, meaningful, and valuable aspects of human-computer interaction and product ownership.
  • Considers a person’s perceptions of system aspects such as utility, ease of use, and efficiency.
  • UX is important because of the increased emphasis on user-centered design. It’s not about what the client wants, it’s what the user needs and wants.
User Interface (UI) Design
  • User Interface (UI) design focuses on the appearance of things that people interact with: websites, apps, appliances, and more.
  • The goal of UI design is to make things look attractive and legible, all while keeping user experience (UX) principals in mind so it both looks great and works great.

User Research
  • Investigating how and why humans do what they do.
  • Includes research methods used to collect information from existing or potential users, such as user interviews, focus groups, monitored interviews, informal interviews, and quantitative surveys.
Personas
  • Fictional characters that UX designers create in order to highlight demographics, behaviors, needs, and motivations.
  • As a snapshot of the target audience, personas make it easier for designers to empathize with consumers throughout the design process.
User Scenario
  • Short stories that describe the why & how of how users use applications and websites.
  • User scenarios help apply user goals to the design of the product.
Journey Map
  • A diagram that explores the multiple (sometimes invisible) steps taken by consumers as they engage with the service.
  • Allows designers to frame the consumer’s motivations and needs in each step of the journey, creating design solutions that are appropriate for each.
  • Can utilize inputs from user interviews, customer service, and sales.
User Flow
  • A visual representation of the user’s flow to complete tasks within the product.
  • It’s the user perspective of the site organization, making it easier to identify which steps could be improved or redesigned.
Sketching, Wireframing & Prototyping
  • Sketching is a quick way of visualizing a new interface by using pen and paper. Sketches are useful for validating product concepts and design approaches with both team members and users.
  • A wireframe is a visual guide that represents page structure, as well as hierarchy and key elements. Useful for discussing ideas with team members and clients, and to assist the work of designers and developers.
  • A prototype is a simulation of a product’s navigation and features, commonly using clickable wireframes or layouts. It’s a quick and dirty way to test and validate a product before fully developing it.
User Testing
  • A one-to-one research interview in which the user is asked to perform a series of tasks in a prototype or a product.
  • Validates and collects feedback of flows, design and features.
