There’s an app for that! Design it in LIS 470.

Ever wanted to design an app, digital service, or wearable device yourself? Then LIS470 might be for you.

This hands-on learning studio class will teach you “interaction design” —  a design method that places people and their needs at the center of the technology design process. You will do project-centered work on a team applying interaction design principles and methods to develop prototypes of people-centered digital products and services.  The class is taught by Professor Corey Jackson who is well known for his work to make citizen science websites like Galaxy Zoo and Zooniverse more effective and engaging. Take this class to help ensure that new technology works and is accessible to diverse users around the globe.
