2.UX from 30000ft (Lecture 2)

Final year course on User Experience (COMP33512) Lecture 2 (given in Week 1) – ocw.cs.manchester.ac.uk ‘Everything is Wrong!’ — OK, OK – not everything is wrong, but some things are! Beyond the formal definitions of User Experience our purpose (and now yours) is to look for things which are wrong and correct them; which means you need to apply the scientific method and be critical. Here we’ll discuss the fundamental purpose of User Experience work (to gauge the experience and then improve it) and finally introduce your first piece of coursework.
