“A user interface is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it’s not that good.” - Martin LeBlanc


Help your students design their future


User experience (UX) design, of which Mobile app design is a derivative, is one of the most transferable and in-demand skill sets you can imagine. Every product and service that we consume - from appliances to entertainment - has to be designed at some level, and the most effective examples have the end user in mind throughout the whole process. UX designers work with their users to create designs iteratively, which speaks to a broader, audience-focused methodology that can be applied to almost any discipline.

We’ve chosen to focus on mobile app design because it’s a topic that students find automatically engaging and relatable to their own lives. However, through this medium students also gain the skills and tools to design any experience by identifying and designing human-centered solutions to their users’ problems. By teaching your students the principles of designing and creating effective mobile applications, you’re not only giving them a valuable digital skill, but also helping them to understand an audience and develop vital iterative design and collaboration skills relevant to any industry.

Understanding the fundamentals of designing mobile apps is important for any educator who wants an easy way to help their students engage with any subject.
