Project UX 2.0 - Designing scenarios&story­boards for innovative smart home apps

Nov 28, 2017 · Greater London, United Kingdom

Description
In this intensive three-week hands-on evening course, we will continue developing an innovative app that allows users to control and manage smart home devices.

Based on user data a team of UX researchers developed a range of design concepts and solutions that we are going to test and communicate to stakeholders using scenarios and storyboards.

What are the scenarios and storyboards used for?
In UX design we use scenarios to create detailed descriptions of how a user uses a product/service and the motivation behind it. They outline the main goal of the user for using a particular product and enable us to better communicate concepts and solutions, allowing us to get feedback from stakeholder and test initial ideas before building prototypes. Storyboards are a visual component and help to enhance the scenarios with pictures/drawings showing the user, how a product is being used and the context it's being used in.

Be prepared for another UXPG course that gives you plenty of opportunities to learn and try out something new, while engaging in team exercises, discussions and practical assignments.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

• Create scenarios to test and communicate proposed solutions

• Identify and translate core concepts/designs into easy to understand steps

• Create visuals using storyboarding techniques

• Collaborate online

Is this course right for me?
If you are looking to change career, have been struggling with applying UX design methods, or just wish to expand your portfolio, then this course is definitely for you. The work created and experience gained, will allow you to demonstrate your understanding of UX design to potential clients and future employers.

I have no prior experience in UX design and have not attended any of the previous courses, will I still benefit from joining the project at this stage?
Yes, this course is ideal if you have no or little understanding of the UX design process. At the start of the course, you will be getting an overview of the different UX design phases the teams have gone through so far; this will help you to understand the context better.

How is this course different from the free meetup?
The meetups are designed to introduce you to a new UX design topic every month, providing you with a platform to learn and network. Exercises are brief and simple, allowing you to apply what you have learned during the presentation.

The UX Playground courses and workshops take this idea much further. You will be given tasks that are more complex and based on a particular project. The aim is to learn new skills by developing a new or improving an existing product, similar to how you would do in a real project.

What format does this course have?
The course is a combination of presentations, Q&A, practical exercises, tasks and group assignments. The course is intensive and in addition to the weekly sessions, you will have to dedicate approximately 1-2 hours to complete exercises and tasks. You will get regular feedback from the course instructor, which will help you to progress in your learning.

Let’s get together to collaborate, invent and design a product that people will be excited about.

I look forward to this exciting new course and hope you will be joining us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
