Abstract

Exploring innovative ideas for interactive software has its challenges. A new process called the User-Centred Design (UCD) Sprint process has been suggested to support teams in exploring users' needs and the future usage of the software with the active involvement of users. Research study results show great benefits for the sprint participants. The course introduces the UCD Sprint process, and participants practices two steps from the UCD Sprint: the user group analysis and stating user experience goals. This in-person course appeals to researchers and developers interested in exploring their innovative ideas through a user-centered step-by-step process.
