To increase the usability and effectiveness of your own design projects, it is critical to understand users. This course takes a deep dive into the most current research on what makes people think and act, what motivates them, how they process and remember information, and, most importantly, what they want in products and applications. You will learn the key aspects of human vision, memory, thought, and decision-making that should directly impact design decisions.
