Secrets of Intuitive Design-How To Design a Conceptual Model

Why are some websites and software easy to use and others are not? Why do users like some software products and reject others? In this course Dr. Susan Weinschenk (Author of 100 Things Every Designer Needs To Know About People) shares what she considers the secrets of intuitive and usable design. You will learn:

 -- How to create a conceptual model

 -- How to connect a conceptual model to the users' mental models

 -- How to decide on major user objects and their "views"

 -- How to make critical conceptual model decisions before you wireframe or prototype a single screen in order to make sure that the conceptual model of what you design fits the users' mental models.

 -- How to use the data you have from user research to create a conceptual model that fits the users

 -- What are the critical components of navigation and action bar design

 -- How to use card sorting techniques to organize information in a way that makes sense to your audience

And more.
