Is This Course For Me?

Students will learn the foundations of digital design, including industry principles, best practices, as well as visual trends and patterns relevant to crafting website and mobile applications.

Students will start the course by selecting a final project of their choosing, giving them the opportunity to apply each week's learnings using industry tools like Sketch and InVision. By the end of the course, students will leave armed with a finished project that showcases user-centered design thinking in the form of a website or app design.

*Sketch is a requirement for all students enrolled in User Interface Design

My time thus far coding at BrainStation has not only rekindled my passion for learning and creativity but has re-shaped the way I view the world, think and problem solve within it.

Learning Portal

Goal Setting

The BrainStation Learning Portal provides students with a place to set their goals for what they want to accomplish in UI Design. This provides valuable insight to our Educators who can get to know each student and help them achieve their desired outcomes.

Access to Learning Content

Once enrolled, all UI Design students are granted access to course material through the BrainStation Learning Portal, including slides, resources and additional readings. Students can then reference past content at any time to help them review new learnings and apply them to their final project, or look back post-course to keep concepts top of mind.

Feedback

UI Design students have the opportunity to showcase their comprehension of course material through the BrainStation Learning Portal. This data is reviewed by Educators who can tailor content and resources accordingly to support students where they need it.

“In the real world, innovation is outpacing education and that's something we’ve recognized at BrainStation. We’re challenging how education is delivered, curated, and published. Our students and Educators benefit from the collaborative tools we’ve developed to help us get content researched, written, and peer reviewed faster than a traditional publishing cycle. We're digital-first in every facet of the phrase and that is something we’re going to continue pushing forward to guarantee our students receive the best education available.”
