About the Program

Human-centered design is an approach to creating products, systems, and services that are effective and enjoyable to use. By placing the user at the center of the design process, we ensure that we create great user experiences (UX). A human-centered approach to design and development helps lead to positive user experiences, by ensuring that our artifacts are easy to learn and use, are fun and enjoyable, and help users to achieve their goals.
