If you’re interested in shaping digital products or systems for public use, consider a course in interaction design. Popular among people with all types of educational goals and interests, this program teaches multimedia communication, which is increasingly important in today’s digital world.

What is a course in interaction design? In general, this topic teaches the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems and services. For instance, introductory courses focus on graphic design, basic programming and software development. Second-year-level courses focus on multimedia topics such as new media interaction, Web development and interactive systems. Popular interaction design subjects include the making of applications for mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads, the design of interactive exhibitions and environments, and game design.

Students who choose to pursue interaction design may be looking to enhance their basic understanding of software development and design or they may be looking to acquire skills in a specialized area such as gaming development. Regardless, they will learn a number of practical multimedia skills.

Costs tend to vary by institution and subject. For example, some advanced courses are yearlong programs and may require an independent project or even a working internship. It is important to check with the school about specific requirements.

Individuals who take courses in interaction design find themselves better prepared for the demands of the 21st century work market, regardless of their final major or degree. They will receive a well-rounded educational experience as well as practical knowledge of multimedia design and application. Individuals who take more advanced courses in interaction design have become experts in dealing with and managing sounds and images, interfaces, and interactive content. Other individuals go on to work for gaming companies as gaming programmers and developers.

Many national and international schools offer programs in interaction design. Many of these same schools also offer an online option, which is particularly convenient for working professionals or students who already have a full course load during the day and are looking to augment their studies.
