> On May 6-8, 1998, UCLA Extension will present the short course,
> "User-Centered Prototyping: Process and Product", on the UCLA
> campus in Los Angeles.
>
> The instructors are Penny Bauersfeld, MS, Human Interface Design
> Consultant; and Kathleen Gomoll, MA, Human Interface Design
> Consultant; and Laurie Vertelney, User Interface Designer, Interval
> Research.
>
> Each participant receives a copy of the text, "Software By Design", by
> Penny Bauersfeld, and extensive course notes.
>
> This course presents methodologies for user-centered design and rapid
> prototyping to help develop effective, successful user interfaces. The
>
> best way to learn how to design interfaces is actually to build an
> interface. This course centers around a progressive team exercise that
>
> offers hands-on experience in interface construction, including task
> analysis, techniques for visualization and paper prototyping, user
> testing and design iteration. Lecturers from various disciplines
> present
> their methods and approaches to user-oriented interface design, with
> team exercises following most lectures. The techniques presented are
> particularly appropriate for design and development of media or
> graphical user interfaces but can be applied to any type of user
> interface development as well. Step-by-step guidelines for interface
> design are presented with example interfaces drawn from the lecturers'
>
> experience. Multimedia presentations are also used throughout the
> course.
>
> The course is intended for participants new to user-centered design,
> or those at some intermediate level who wish to explore additional
> tips
> and methods for user-oriented design.
>
> UCLA Extension has presented this highly successful short course
> since 1991.
>
> The course fee is $1295, which includes extensive course materials
> and the text. The course notes are for participants only, and are not
>
> for sale.

>
> On May 9, 1998, UCLA Extension will present the one-day course,
> "Designing Visual Interfaces", on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.
>
> The instructor is Kevin Mullet, MA, User Interface Architect, Icarian.
>
> Each participant receives the text, "Designing Visual Interfaces:
> Communication-Oriented Solutions", by K. Mullet and D. Sano, and
> extensive course notes.
>
> This one-day course describes fundamental techniques applied by
> communication-oriented visual designers throughout the world that can
> help you create better graphical interfaces for software tools,
> multimedia,
> and information retrieval. The orientation, process, training, and
> culture
> of the visual design disciplines (graphic design, industrial design,
> interior
> design, architecture) are critical for effective interface design, but
> few
> software managers, marketers, developers, or human factors engineers
> receive any training in these areas.
>
> The course covers basic design principles (the what and why), common
> errors (don't let this happen to you!), and practical techniques (the
> how)
> for each of four key areas: visual coding, visual structure, visual
> representation, and visual systems.
>
> Each section is accompanied by dozens of real-world examples and is
> supplemented by a short, focused, 'hands-on' exercise that gives
> participants a chance to try out one of the techniques for themselves
> while receiving feedback from the instructor.
>
> UCLA Extension has presented this highly successful short course
> since 1995.
>
> The course fee is $495, which includes the text and extensive course
> materials. These course materials are for participants only, and are
> not for sale.
>
> Both courses may be taken together for the discounted fee of $1495.
