Introduction to UX and Accessible Design

Institute of Coding and UAL Creative Computing Institute via FutureLearn


Learn how to design more accessible user interfaces

User interfaces are the part of technology that connect you to your devices, humans to algorithms – allowing people to take their ideas and turn them into products.

Interfaces are vital to modern technology. But how can we ensure they’re accessible for all users? On this course, you’ll learn from disabled user experience (UX) experts about the issues facing disabled users.

You’ll get to grips with the guidance and regulations covering user interfaces, and learn to master CSS and JavaScript to make easier-to-use interfaces, taking your first steps to becoming a UX designer.

Featured in the UK government’s The Skills Toolkit collection.

This course is aimed at early-career creative technologists, established technologists looking to extend their skills, as well as professionals from wider fields looking to understand more about accessible design, and the importance and opportunities that user interfaces and creative technologies present.
