Udacity course: The Design of Everyday Things, taught by Don Norman


New Course: The Design of Everyday Things.

Design 101: The Design of Everyday Things is based upon the new edition of The Design of Everyday Things (revised and expanded: to be published in Fall 2013). The material is been divided into three or four short courses (the exact number to be determined), each of which can be taken independently, offering students considerable flexibility. The components provide the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to understand the role of design in today’s world. We use lively videos, assign hands-on exercises, and provide an interactive discussion forum to aid in exploring principles of interaction design, human cognition and emotion, and how to become a design thinker and even a design doer. 

What kind of design? Any design that focuses upon the interaction of people with technology: the fundamental principles are the same for software interaction and hardware, interaction design, experience design, and industrial design.   

We also cover in these courses the relationship between design and business, and incorporate career discussions and advice from successful designers across diverse industries.
