My definition (and this may evolve) would be:
"User Experience is an umbrella term used to describe all the factors that contribute to the quality of experience a person has when interacting with a specific software artefact, or system. It focuses on the practice of user centred: design, creation, and testing, whereby the outcomes can be qualitatively evaluated using small numbers of users."
Lecture 03 - 'UX the Ghost' -- here we will discuss your thoughts on what UX actually is, we'll discuss how this course defines it and analyse why. Finally, we'll discuss why UX is important, and you'll find out what the UX landscape looks like.
Lecture 04 - 'It's Complicated...' -- people are complicated, they do things for seemingly no reason, they like things for seemingly no reason, their opinions change with their moods; people are complicated. Here we'll look at people from the perspective of their perception, cognition, and the factors which may confound our work -- discussing how we can understand these in the context of the computer systems they experience.
