Learner and User Experience Research

Humans’ responses to experiences are central to the learning process. User and learner experience design (UX and LX, respectively) focuses on designing learning in a human-centered manner so as to provide learners with experiences that intentionally propel them towards learning goals.

The vision of this edited open access book is to create an introductory resource for a variety of audiences–from students who are beginning their program of study to faculty who teach in HCI, usability, and related programs– focusing specifically on the theory and practice of UX and LX in the field of learning design and technology (LDT).
