Next UX versus UI. A lot of you must be wondering what is the actual difference between UX and UI? I have heard this term being used so commonly in public that I am a UI UX designer. A lot of people put UI before UX while speaking. In reality this particular term UI UX in that particular order is far from true and right, UX always presides UI. As we have understood, UX is the human interaction with machines and computers using different interfaces and softwares. UX deals with making a particular process user friendly, whereas UI is more interested in creating the physical.. interaction. UX works on processes, does a lot of research, tries and understands the business the user, tries and understands the connection between the particular business to the user, UX tries to bring the user closer to the goals and the needs of the business.
UI on the other hand is a graphic design process to make and create certain screens by using software like FIGMA and XD.. UX always always comes first followed by UI..
UX tells the UI what to design… UX includes processes like customer research, customer journey research, UX tries and understands the right navigation flow which includes every single feature of the platform… UX understands the information hierarchy.
UI on the other hand, understands visual hierarchy. UI creates screens, creates wireframes and tries to connect the wireframes and the screens to be sent to the development team for developing. UX is not a part of the process, it is the process so as UI.
UX applies cognitive psychology in its process. UX tries and understands the human being behind a particular action, tries and understands the needs and how a human being is actually thinking while creating a process.
UI on the other hand uses different visual laws for example the law of proximity or miller’s law to design screens which are aesthetically pleasing yet extremely accessible across different disciplines.
Well now that we are done with the first module, let us actually summarize what we have learned, well we started by understanding what is UX? Simple put UX is perceiving and understanding human experiences, it talks about how human beings interact with the digital world and in return we actually make that interaction easy.
Next we looked at the history of UX. If you remember, I talked about how horses in middle age changed the way people travel from one place to another, not just people but entire families started travelling in carriages that were made available.
Next we spoke about Don Norman the father of UX and how he coined the term in 1993, next we spoke about why do we need UX? We need UX because UX increases revenue for the business, it brings business closer to the user and also brings business closer to the right user.
Lastly, users find it really easy to associate with the product and the goals of the business with the right UX.
Next we spoke about the UX process, it was divided into four parts: remember, understand, research, design and test.
Next we spoke about Art, science, how UX starts as an Art, how the UX starts the UX designer starts designing, guessing but then with repeated testing it becomes a science.
And lastly we spoke about four most important words in the world of UX.
Who, what, where and when, who is it for? What is the business about? Where is the business taking place? Where are the transactions taking place? And when is the business launching or relaunching?
In the next few courses we are going to start understanding the user, we are going to see how we actually research? What are the main types of research that an UX researcher can use to get better data?
Finally we come to the discussion time, click on the discussion button below and connect to fellow learners. I am really curious to hear your take on UX design and research. It is also important for you to learn and understand what others have to say about UX research and design.

UX is the process of designing a product that is usable. UI is the process of designing a product that looks good.
The difference between UX and UI:
UX focuses on how well a product works, while UI focuses on how well it looks.
UX focuses on the user's experience, while UI focuses on the user interface.
UX design is an umbrella term that refers to the process of designing and creating digital products that are intuitive and easy-to-use. The process involves taking into account how users will interact with a product, how they will use it, and what they can expect from it.
The different types of UX design include:
User experience design:
The role of the UX designer is to help companies create digital products that people love using. They also provide solutions for problems with these products. For example, if you have a website that has too many clicks on every page, a UX designer can help you reduce these clicks and make your website more efficient.
Choosing UI can be a difficult task as there are so many factors to consider. However, it's important to understand the benefits of choosing UI. There are some key benefits of using UI that you should be aware of.
Some of the key benefits of using a UI include:
Creating consistent design across multiple platforms and devices
Customizing and personalizing your designs
Avoiding mistakes in design
In this introduction, the author gives a brief definition of UX and UI before providing a list of different companies that use them.
UX: User experience design focuses on how the user interacts with an interface or a website. It is the process of designing these interactions so that they are both intuitive and easy to navigate.
UI: User interface design is about creating interfaces for websites or devices that are easy to use and navigate by users. This includes interaction design, visual design, and information architecture
VERY VERY USEFUL
well designed course very clear indeed
Excellent course at all, concepts are well explained.
The best Course
i think there should also be some visual question.. instead of theory
