Fundamentals of communication and interaction design are presented so students can effectively conceptualize and communicate concepts and the rationales that led to those concepts.


 

In this Carnegie Mellon University course, fundamentals of communication and interaction design – including layout, typography, color, sketching, storyboarding and the use of images – are presented so students can effectively conceptualize and communicate concepts and the rationales that led to those concepts. By the end of the course students are expected to have learned how to create effective design languages to implement and expend a sequence of interface screens; ideate concepts and scenarios for how people might engage with design; render selected scenarios as storyboards to effectively communicate design ideas; explain and demonstrate the difference between ideation and iteration in a design process; and engage critique in an actionable manner.
