UX Design Is One Of The Most Rapidly Developing

If you want to build a mobile or a web application and proceed with its successful launch, it’s vitally necessary to take in account a wide range of aspects and look at them through the prism of business and of course users. We all fully understand that success of an application depends on its functionality and use it may bring to them. And indeed, the aspect of functionality seems to be crucial and is always considered as priority, while design mostly takes a back seat. Further on, let’s speak about the UX/UI design, why it’s worth paying attention to no less than to the technical side of the question.

First Impression Makes the Difference

An application may have a great functionality with an extensive set of beneficial features, but it is offset by the low-quality UI/UX design, and you will lose your potential user with a high probability. And even in case you correct an error and make improvements to the design, the chance of attracting this user back is not that high due to the initially bad user experience.

So, what should we keep in mind to avoid the failure? If the UI/UX design of the web or mobile application leaves much to be desired, the probability that a user would linger at the app is negligible due to the first impression that already can’t be changed. So, if you want to keep your potential user’s attention a little longer and prevent his/her premature leaving of the application, it’s necessary to come about UI/UX with all seriousness.

UI & UX Design. What’s the Difference?

Well, let’s take a closer look at both these notions. First of all, it must be pointed out that they should be considered separately, since they are completely different. But at the same time both elements have fundamental importance for the end product and one cannot exist without another.

Let’s start from UX design (user experience). This notion includes the process of user’s problem detection and further solution, in order to increase his/her satisfaction and facilitate better interaction between a user and an application. Usability improvement, ease of use and user’s satisfaction from the interaction with an application determine the quality level of the product along with its relevance.

And what about UI design (user interface)? Quite often UI design is mixed up with a graphic design, which is definitely not correct. UI is a complicated structure which transfers the product development from the layout to the attractive and understandable experience for users. UI is an art which focuses on a variety of elements of the product interface that make it attractive, such as colors, button style, graphic, animation, widgets and many others. Main responsibility of UI designer is the visual user’s perception of the end product.

Technology in Education

Each day the world around us looks more and more like a picture from a science-fiction book. Smart speakers connected to the voice-controlled intelligent personal assistant services can offer weather reports, tell the latest news, or play a song that better fits your mood. Self-driving cars technology is reaching an incredible level of development. Unfortunately, one of the most desirable sci-fi artifacts, the technology allowing to load knowledge into the brain instantly, is still unreachable. The educational process still takes years and years to be completed. But thanks to technology, we can reach incredible educational efficiency, the level of which was unattainable a few decades ago.

Technology in Education Helps to Keep Kids Engaged

First and foremost, we must admit that kids and adolescents are engaging with technologies constantly nowadays. The generation of technological learners will face zero difficulties with new programs in education. Moreover, you can make the process more personalized by allowing kids to learn using their own devices for accessing materials.

The implementation of properly designed eLearning software can reduce the time required to learn a particular subject by 20%-60%. 

The use of digital devices will make lessons less boring for kids and allow them to stay focus and learn faster. In education, the use of different kinds of technology gives you more grasp of knowledge and experience.

Technology Helps to Overcome Borders in Education

Another distinctive feature of modern technology is the possibility to make data accessible from anywhere. Many universities and schools are ready to provide courses that can be accessed by users from remote areas or overseas. To communicate with students, teachers can use available free-to-use application such as Skype or other video conferencing tools. But the implementation of functionality required for the provision of educational services, students invoicing, staff management, knowledge assessment, and other important tasks require the involvement of more advanced software.

As an example of a web-based application designed according to the particular needs of an educational organization. This technology allows users from different countries to manage, book, and pay for courses provided by an educational institution. Any student that has trouble finding time to meet with representatives and fill required papers due to such reasons as for physical condition or residence in another country.

Using it, a user can order and pay for classes of their choice online. Also, for the students with special needs, there’s the possibility to hire a tutor specializing in certain types of learning disabilities.
