Products are no longer simply products; they live within complex business and technological ecosystems. To fully understand the user experience, designers must be highly flexible communicators, facilitators, mediators, and thinkers. Whether designing a dialysis machine, a mobile phone app, or a water filtration system for developing markets, design is as much about framing user experiences as it is about the creation of new artefacts.

The web has made everyone a publisher and content is a critical component of user experience. This course will explore content development as an aspect of creating user experiences, and will pay particular attention to its relationship with the information architecture. Students will examine different approaches to audio, video, and especially text, exploring ways how content can improve user experience. We will also address the basics of content management and learn how to develop a large-scale editorial strategy that can be used to guide the creation of websites with millions of pages.
