Description

What is design thinking and how can it be incorporated in our day-to-day situations? How can we expand our creativity by introducing different directions into our thought process? In this course, we visit brainstorming techniques through role-play exercises in a team environment and learn how to gather meaningful data through a variety of simulations and activities. We also increase our dexterity by navigating the two- and three-dimensional worlds, with the creation of a variety of scale and full-size prototypes and presentation boards. We explore how to sketch quickly and effectively by analyzing different techniques, and learn the value of working on a team project and working through feedback. The course culminates with a presentation of research techniques, thinking processes and final outcomes.

Description

Having an effective web presence is much more complicated than simply registering a domain name. It requires strategies to make your site stand out among the millions of other dot-coms. Search engines are the means by which internet addresses are delivered to inquiring web browsers and, once you understand how they work, you can use this knowledge to give your site a distinct advantage. A sound search engine strategy based on tested optimization techniques makes design and copywriting decisions that much clearer. This course provides you with a compass to work your way past the competition.
