NICF- Mobile User Experience Design

Overview

The proliferation of mobile devices and the ‘Internet of Things’ has increased organisations’ awareness on the design of services delivered on the mobile platform. Mobile app is now a critical feature of service delivery and typically the first touch-point in the user journey with the service. Reflecting this trend, organisations are investing in the Mobile User Experience Design as a means to ensure effective delivery and increase competitiveness of their services. 

This 3-day course is designed to provide advanced training in key concepts, tools and techniques for designing good user experience in mobile app. From analysing mobile user behaviour, understanding mobile design principles and patterns, to mobile app prototyping and usability testing, this course also leverages on the general user experience design principles and process covered in our NICF - Digital User Experience Design course. Participants can expect substantial learning opportunities via hands-on workshops throughout the duration of the course.

This course is part of the Digital Innovation & Design Series offered by NUS-ISS.
