The significance of user-centered design (UCD) in system development cannot be overstated. Recognizing various techniques and methods for user-centered design enables the creation of systems that truly cater to user needs. In this course, you will look at the importance of conducting user research and analysis to allow for a deep understanding of user behaviors and preferences, thereby influencing system design decisions. You will learn how emphasizing the role of human factors in system design ensures that the user's experience is prioritized and optimized. Next, you will discover potential challenges and limitations of user-centered design and how to overcome them through the creation of user personas and scenarios. Finally, you will explore a case study that involves conducting a comprehensive user research study, creating user personas and scenarios, and utilizing them as insights to inform the design of the system.
