Hi, I'd appreciate some help with what I'm trying to create as I don't even know what it's called to google it.
I'd like to make something with similar functionality to this: http://www.onlinecollegecourses.com/beneath-the-thinking-cap/#
I have both the graphics I need and can create slices from the graphics in photoshop, - is there a tool I can use to create this effect?
I am currently in the last year of high school and have decided to pursue UX as my long-term career. I am very torn about which degree to go after and thought some advice from some fellow UXers would help. What are you guys' opinions on the following degrees i.e. What it's like to to be in the UX programme- the people, atmosphere, resources, syllabus, teaching environment, student experience, is it worth it etc. ? The unis that I am more inclined towards are- UCL, UAL, NYU, SCAD, and U of T.
The degrees I have applied for are:
Loughborough University BSc User centred design
University College London (UCL) Arts and Sciences (BASc)
UAL London College of Communication BA (Hons.) Information and Interface Design
University of Leeds BA Digital Media
The Glasgow School of Art BA (Hons) Interaction Design
NYU Integrated Digital Media (BS)
Savannah College of Art & Design BFA UX Design
University of British Columbia BA Media Studies
University of Toronto Interactive Digital Media (Specialist), Honours Bachelor of Arts / Master of Information
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University BA(Hons) Communication Design
I was initially very keen on the SCAD UX Design course but am held back for safety reasons- drugs, alcohol, gun, racism against Asians and personal security issues are some things that I am very concerned about. I read the security report on the Savannah campus and there are 100+ drug/alcohol reports. Is SCAD Savannah a safe environment to be in? What are the things I need to be aware of?
I am also quite worried that the learning atmosphere might not be as active/motivated and the overall quality of students might not be as good as traditional universities of higher rankings where students come from better academic backgrounds and are more motivated to do better. Is the statement true?
Also, what are the prospects of computer programming in these courses- How advanced does it go? What are some tips you can give me in my portfolio submission?
If you have taken any of the degrees listed above, I would really appreciate your honest opinion! Thank you so much!
Hi everybody, I am looking for a bit of advice if possible regarding a route into web design. I am 32 and work full time as a lorry driver but have always had a keen interest in computers and particularly programming, I have been through courses on the likes of codeacademy and w3schools and really enjoyed them, although I do feel as if I need a whole tonne of practice.
Anyway, I was wondering what advice there would be as to my next step? I have looked at doing university courses and various other so called approved certifications but when I read job adverts these are rarely mentioned, its mainly 2 years exp and maybe a computer related degree. I have read here that just building a portfolio is a good start, but again where would I get work to start me off, even voluntary work.
One more thing, I really enjoy web design but there seems to be a lot more work for developers, would that be a better choice?
Thanks for any help offered, sorry for throwing so many questions out there it just seems a bit of a minefield.
I've created a website for a fake company and I've been asked to gather some feedback. I'm being assessed on not only the design of the site but also the functionality, it has to be working without errors. I've done my QA and I'm fairly sure I haven't missed anything. Would you be able to leave me some feedback on your thoughts of my website?
