These basic knowledges will be required when the participants  have an interest for create a ASV.

Sub Course B:  User Experience Design

User experience or UX has been gaining a lot of interests from people across disciplines to learn on how a product or a service creates a positive experience to its users. UX is an evolving term which is no longer exclusively related to the creation of digital products such as software, apps, or websites. Instead, the application of UX research has been used to understand users’ experience towards business, marketing, public service, and many others. Revolved in design principles including design thinking, this course is to provide a solid understanding the value of UX in creating hybrid learning experience during the pandemic situation. In this edition, we will cover principles of UX, design thinking, data collection through interviews or/and contextual inquiry, and lastly to generate new ideas for a better hybrid learning experience. Participants will work in groups on a hands-on UX design research through a real project-based learning.
