Designing for Usability is a course that will prepare you for writing in the workplace. Students will learn principles of document design to help them meet the needs of intended audiences. Students will also be introduced to different methods of gathering user feedback to determine whether texts -- such as instructions or brochures or websites -- are effectively designed. The class will then work together to help a local nonprofit organization improve its website. Students are advised to take WRTG 2010 or its equivalent prior to this course.
