On KnowItAll Ninja we have just launched a brand new BTEC Tech Award DIT Component 1 course that will help you deliver this unit and prepare your students for their assignments on the 2022 specification.
The Exploring User Interface Design Principles component is a unit that introduces students to the principles of good user interface design as well as project management skills. Both of these subjects are important skills that can lead to fantastic employment opportunities.
The new course on KnowItAllNinja.com covers the entirety of the learning aims for this unit, which includes:
- Understand interface design for individuals and organisations
- User interfaces
- Audience needs
- Design principles
- Designing an efficient user interface
- Be able to use project planning techniques to plan, design and develop a user interface
- Project planning techniques
- Creating a project proposal and plan
- Creating an initial design
- Developing a user interface
- Be able to review a user interface
This new course is designed for the updated 2022 specification, but due to the similarities with the existing BTEC Tech Award DIT Component 1 specification, it could be of use for students studying the older course too.
Exploring User Interface Design Principles Course
As discussed, this course covers the entirety of the learning aims for the Component 1 specification. Through 21 lessons students will learn everything they need to know in order to successfully complete their assignments.
