One critical aspect of user experience is the concept of accessibility. In order to design websites that are accessible, it is important to incorporate universal design in the process. By employing universal design concepts, we can ensure that the things we create are usable by everyone, irrespective of abilities or device. This course will cover topics in accessibility and mobile design, focused on design rather than coding. Accessibility topics will include legal regulations, evaluation tools, and some do's and don'ts for accessible design. We will also discuss mobile design techniques, including “mobile first” and responsive design as different approaches to mobile design.
This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in User Experience (UX), but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.
