You’re designing a product for people, and it doesn’t matter if it’s on Android or iPhone or Windows Phone. – Joey Flynn, Product Designer at Facebook
The User Centered Design approach is a creative multi-stage problem solving process and it helps to build the product that the users want, rather than forcing them to change their behaviour to use the product.
It is a repeatable practice, it starts with the people you’re designing for and it ends with new solutions that are tailored to fit their needs.
Sometimes the process needs an investment of resources, however it’s better to make an effort at the beginning of the process than to see your product fails because the users are dissatisfied.
Users understand and interact with a system through its user interface. The concepts, images and terminology presented in the interface must be appropriate to users’ needs. For example, a system that allows customers to buy their own tickets would be very different to one used professionally by ticket sales staff. The main differences are not in the requirements or even the detailed use cases, but the characteristics of the users and the environments in which the systems might operate.
In this course, you will learn why focus on the user, while designing and the important approaches to user centered design
