Why Enroll for the Course?

As the user experience (UX) transforms and incorporates new technologies, we must rethink our interactions and infrastructure. These emerging technologies--such as multi-touch, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and haptics--are propelling us toward the next generation in human-computer interactions with no signs of slowing down.

Developed by New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, in association with RLab, this course will help you develop the common design language, heuristics, and values that will enable you to build engaging and innovative user experiences that meet the demands of a new era.


It's estimated that 80% of emerging technologies will involve AI by the year 2021.


68.7 Mm

In 2019, 42.9 million people in the U.S. used a VR product, and 68.7 million people used an AR once monthly.


$13 Bn

By 2022, AR-based social media ads are projected to be pulling in roughly $13 billion dollars per year.
