What makes an interface intuitive? How can I tell whether one design works better than another? This course will teach you fundamental principles of design and how to effectively evaluate your work with users. You'll learn fundamental principles of visual design so that you can effectively organize and present information with your interfaces. You'll learn principles of perception and cognition that inform effective interaction design. And you'll learn how to perform and analyze controlled experiments online. In many cases, we'll use Web design as the anchoring domain. A lot of the examples will come from the Web, and we'll talk just a bit about Web technologies in particular. When we do so, it will be to support the main goal of this course, which is helping you build human-centered design skills, so that you have the principles and methods to create excellent interfaces with any technology.

TOP REVIEWS FROM DESIGN PRINCIPLES: AN INTRODUCTION
Great, if brief course. Some occasionally ill-worded test questions. But this course piqued my interest for the ones that follow.
If you do not have experience with data analysis (specifically speaking Pearson's chi square technique), you might struggle like me.
I liked particularly the course about running web experiments with A/B testing and learning a lot about comparing data with chi-square testing.
The course was simple and crisp yet covered it all - interaction, visual and usability. Liked the duration of the videos followed by reading material that covered the highlights of the topic.
