Intro to UX
The first of two main takeways from this intro was that I got a grasp of the history and evolution of the concept of UX design. Today it is now embedded as a step in itself in the the creation of objects and concepts. More specifically, in relation to this course, it is embedded as a step in the creation of software such as Website & Mobile Apps. Writers such as Don Norman seem of particular importance. Don has written a classic and timeless design book that would be of great benefit while initially learning and understanding the concepts of user design.
The importance of the Capstone Project is now apparent for this course. The pillar I choose was community. I have a solid concept in place for the App inspired by what I see as the need for creating a community within the independent retail stores of Toronto.
