Designing for Accessibility

  • Not Offered

3 - 4 units

Letter or Credit/No Credit

Designing for accessibility is a valuable and important skill in the UX community. As businesses are becoming more aware of the needs and scope of people with some form of disability, the benefits of universal design, where designing for accessibility ends up benefitting everyone, are becoming more apparent. This class introduces fundamental Human Computer Interaction (HCI) concepts and skills in designing for accessibility. Student projects will identify an accessibility need, prototype a design solution, and conduct a user study with a person with a disability. Prerequisites: Background in human-centered design (e.g., CS 147, CS 247, ME 115A, or a d.school class) is required. Web or mobile programming experience (e.g., CS 142), or experience with qualitative user studies may be helpful. The class involves team design projects and prototyping.
