santa monica college catalog 2018–2019 designers ensure that products are appealing effective and intuitive for users in this program students will develop proficiency in the skills necessary to enter this well-paid and exciting field the following courses are upper-division courses that are part of santa monica college’s bachelor of science degree program in interaction design enrollment is limited to admitted program participants for more information please see www.smcixd.org transferability of these courses will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the transfer institution ixd 310 interaction design studio 1 3 units ixd 330 interaction design studio 2 3 units transfer csu • prerequisite interaction design 310 microinteractions found in every user interface are designed moments e.g log in copy and paste on or off that are an integral part of every interface this course reveals these seemingly invisible interactive controls providing an overview of specific platforms paradigms and affordances the studio prepares students to create task oriented end-to-end user experiences and interaction flows students learn how to design at the micro scale exploring appropriate forms states feedback and loops based on different contexts and user goals through iterative methodologies students learn to refine the details of a specific feature interaction collaborating directly with users and fellow classmates students prototype critique and test existing interaction examples and their own microinteraction designs students develop a critical understanding of how interactive forms communicate and influence a user’s behavior this course is open only to students who have been admitted to smc’s bachelor of science program in interaction design see www.smcixd.org for more information ixd 350 interactive storytelling 3 units transfer csu • prerequisite admission to the bachelor of science in interaction design this design course focuses on the storytelling component of interaction design with a special focus on prototyping and motion graphics exploring different types of prototyping from paper prototypes to digital screen-based prototypes e.g web-based tools video prototypes students use storytelling to describe experiences in interaction design students use a hands-on approach to design a better experience for end users by sketching storytelling experimenting making and testing students create prototypes at different levels of fidelity using appropriate tools and technologies this course is open only to students who have been admitted to smc’s bachelor of science program in interaction design see www.smcixd.org for more information ixd 360 product design 3 units transfer csu • prerequisite interaction design 350 this course provides a hands-on introductory experience to the history contemporary methodologies and emerging practices of product design this studio teaches students to think through “making” and includes in-class workshops on 3d modeling and rapid-prototyping students cross design disciplines and toolsets using 3d forms to solve problems act out new capabilities and connect to other devices objects and people the projects in this course are fast-paced collaborative and experimental this course is open only to students who have been admitted to smc’s bachelor of science program in interaction design see www.smcixd.org for more information ixd 370 design for community change 3 units transfer csu • prerequisite interaction design 330 in this course students work with a variety of organizations addressing a community need to design and develop a project with social impact students apply a variety of user experience and interaction design skill sets to work collaboratively with community stakeholders in identifying and helping to solve a need through this experience students recognize and demonstrate many interaction design practices related to research analysis concept design and prototyping to work on a project designed to serve a community need this course is open only to students who have been admitted to smc’s bachelor of science program in interaction design see www.smcixd.org for more information ixd 410 project management for design 2 units transfer csu • prerequisite admission to the bachelor of science in interaction design this course contextualizes project management for interaction designers project management for design provides a comprehensive overview of current design development processes and tools used to successfully deliver a highquality project on time students will learn to clearly communicate with clients and manage the design process while integrating design objectives into the overall development timeline students will develop leadership skills learn to plan organize motivate and control resources based on project goals this course is open only to students who have been admitted to smc’s bachelor of science program in interaction design see www.smcixd.org for more information ixd 430 interaction design studio 3 transfer csu • prerequisite interaction design 330 3 units course descriptions transfer csu • prerequisite admission to the bachelor of science in interaction design with the prevalence of the computer in contemporary culture interaction design has emerged as a practice that determines how people engage with technology this course examines the specific field of interaction design its history human-centered design principles and screenbased interaction patterns students learn how to design the behavior of interactive digital interfaces and gain an understanding of how design decisions impact a user’s experience and the overall success of a product students analyze historical examples contemporary user interfaces and their own designs students also learn how to design justify and articulate using human-centered design principles and screen-based interaction patterns this course is open only to students who have been admitted to smc’s bachelor of science program in interaction design see www.smcixd.org for more information 255
