As the user experience (UX) transforms and incorporates new technologies, we must rethink our
interactions and infrastructure. These emerging technologies–such as multi-touch, virtual reality
(VR), augmented reality (AR), and haptics–are propelling us toward the next generation in
human-computer interactions with no signs of slowing down.
With technologies rapidly going beyond the touchscreen into new realities, how do you design immersive user experiences and stay at the forefront of your industry? Developed by New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, in association with RLab, this course will help you develop the common design language, heuristics, and values that will enable you to build engaging and innovative user experiences that meet the demands of a new era
This course is for product development/design executives who want to gain a solid understanding of how UX design can be applied to emerging digital interfaces and tech. The course is designed to give you the tools you need to impact and transform the user experience relevant to your specific industry, whatever it may be
