Overview

Learn how to design more accessible user interfaces

User interfaces are the part of technology that connect you to your devices, humans to algorithms – allowing people to take their ideas and turn them into products.

Interfaces are vital to modern technology. But how can we ensure they’re accessible for all users? On this course, you’ll learn from disabled user experience (UX) experts about the issues facing disabled users.

You’ll get to grips with the guidance and regulations covering user interfaces, and learn to master CSS and JavaScript to make easier-to-use interfaces, taking your first steps to becoming a UX designer.

Featured in the UK government’s The Skills Toolkit collection.
