We’re a group interested in gaining more user experience design skills when it comes to creating our own campus digital experiences. Our intention is to teach each other skills, giving people who do the work of designing the confidence to create better experiences. We also want to look at how our individual designs make up the larger campus digital experience.
The core of making a better experience is to understand the needs of our users and provide them with experiences that are usable, valuable, accessible, intuitive, engaging, and consistent.
