Learn to design easy-to-navigate websites and apps
Meets Sundays, 5-7 pm
See website and app design in a new way
Wireframe is a 10-week introductory course to User Experience Design, where you will develop a mindset to identify design problems and find creative solutions for them. You will be able to effectively communicate and defend your decisions along the way through understanding design principles, information architecture, and interaction design.
Create optimized products using prototyping tools
Through several projects centered around real-world design challenges, you'll learn how to find solutions to problems and then go one step further and implement those ideas digitally. By the end of the course you will have polished projects on apps or product designs, and a better understanding of the user focused design industry.
Develop experience in design thinking
As the digital world continues to grow and become more prevalent, user-centered design becomes increasingly crucial for how we as humans interact with technology. This course will help you have a solid foundation in design thinking, whether you want to pursue a career in UX or use the principles in other industries to improve how users will interact with products or services.

Fees & Accessibility
Course Fee: $125 $95
Each of our courses is just $125 $95 — that's less than a weekly lunch out for the semester. We've dropped the price for Fall 2020 to ensure our courses remain accessible to all in these challenging times, and to reflect that we know online courses aren't the same as being in-person.

We are committed to making our courses accessible to all. We reduce or eliminate the program fee to all students who need it, no questions asked. Our aim is to enable everyone who wants to learn and join the HackCville community.

We think you'll love HackCville, but if you decide you need to drop, you may request a refund within 10 days of your course's first workshop meeting time. You'll receive a full refund, less a $20 operations fee. Beyond this date, no refunds will be given.
Meeting Times
All of our courses meet once a week for 2 hours. Courses start the fourth week of UVA classes (September 13) and continue weekly until Thanksgiving. Courses expect a 4-6 hour/week commitment.

Outside of the 2 hours in your workshop meeting time, you can expect to meet with your instructor weekly for labs (at flexible times) and to spend some time working with your classmates on projects.

We know how to do online teaching right. Our Skills Courses will be all-online for the foreseeable future to protect the health of our students and instructors. Teaching online is not new for us - we know how to make online courses fun, engaging, and interactive. (We know you can't just film a traditional lecture and hope for the best.)

We've modified our curriculum and drastically changed our instructor training to ensure every student has an awesome experience. We've also dropped our course tuition by nearly 30% because we know online learning still isn't the same as being in-person.
