You probably have heard people saying " this app is really intuitive". What they often refer to, is a product, that is very easy to use and accessible. Flowcharts help us to design intuitive systems by revealing the structure and how the user will interact with it. They go beyond the design of visual components and are vital to user experience design.
In this session, we will be looking at how flowcharts can be used to develop a coherent structure and flow for any application or platform.
You will learn how to take a solution and translate it into a flowchart to validate and examine how the user will interact with the system.
We will be looking at the paths users can take and identify opportunities that will allow us to improve the user journey even further.
By the end of the session you should be able to:
create basic flowcharts to validate solutions
lay out system processes and user interactions
identify and use a set of UML symbols
use flowcharts to better communicate your ideas and solutions
Is this for me?
This session is designed to give you an introduction to the concept and basic use of flowcharts within the UX design process. Everyone interested in learning how to create apps/websites that are easy to navigate and use will benefit greatly from this session.
Another hands-on session with exercises, discussions, and introduction to an exciting new UX design topic.
I look forward to seeing you again.
