Subject: Designing for Action
The aim of interaction design is to make products that meet the needs of the user and are easy to operate - this is what you will learn in this course. To be able to "Design for Action" you will learn how people think, feel and act. Your own research will be needed for that as well. Not like in a lab and with a team of scientists: We will just observe and try out ideas. Our partner is Mozilla, a foundation creating Firefox and promoting the open web - supported by thousands of volunteers from all over the world. The knowledge you gain can help you to design new ways of interacting with web content.
It is recommended to do this course in combination with the Interface Design Project module "Bibliothek der Zukunft". Our exercises and research can and should be used for contributing to your practical work and specific topics for the Mozilla-Project will be covered in the course.
