One of the key ingredients to a successful product is the creation of effective, efficient and visually pleasing displays. In order to produce such high-quality displays, whether they are graphical e.
By observing, researching, and identifying examples of our perceptual abilities, we can design products according to these unifying qualities. Gestalt psychology is a theory of mind which has been applied to a number of different aspects of human thought, action, and perception.
In particular, Gestalt theorists and researchers attempt to understand visual perception in terms of the way in which underlying processes are organized and how they help us make sense of the world. The organization of these cognitive processes is important to our understanding of how we interpret the constant stream of visual information entering our eyes and how it becomes a cohesive, meaningful and usable representation of the world.
Over the last twenty years, the work of Gestalt psychologists has been adopted by interaction designers and other professionals involved in the development of products for human users. Within this course, we have compiled and consolidated some of the best resources currently available on the subject of Gestalt psychology and visual perception.
To help you appreciate how you can apply Gestalt psychology to web design, we have provided many different examples from existing designs. These draw attention to the exact qualities, quirks, and features of visual perception. Moreover, they discuss how these have been accommodated and, on a number of occasions, exploited so as to support either the user's intentions or those of the designer or client. The application of Gestalt thinking to design provides us with insights and new ways of approaching problems and challenges.
By cementing in our own minds the many ways we organize visual information, we can improve our designs for all users. Courses in the Interaction Design Foundation are designed to contain comprehensive, evidence-based content, while ensuring that the learning curve is never too steep.
All participants will have the opportunity to share ideas, seek help with tests, and enjoy the social aspects afforded by our open and friendly forum. Connect with helpful peers and make friends with like-minded individuals as you push deeper into the exciting and booming industry of design.
Finding and providing web design examples that correspond to Gestalt laws makes it easier to remember much of the course. I liked how the questions started out easy and then eventually you really had to think and apply what you'd learned.
I liked the examples through the sections, because Gestalt could be difficult if we see only dots as examples. Your answers are graded by experts, not machines.

We will re-run it shortly. One of the reasons we continually open and close courses is to be able to control the classroom size. Networking is a large part of our value proposition, so we want just the right number of people inside the courses. The actual start date of the course will be a few weeks after sign-ups begin too. You can set your own study schedule. There are no "live sessions" or "webinars" since our members are from all timezones around the world.
We are a truly global community — with members in every single corner of the world. Thus, once you are enrolled, you can take all the time you want to complete a given course. Every time you complete a course, you get an industry-recognized Course Certificate. There is no limit to how many Course Certificates you can earn during your membership. You can see an example of a Course Certificate at the bottom of the Course Catalogue. We will be marking answers for as long as there are active members.
Therefore, even if you are the only person taking a lesson at that particular time, your answers will still be marked. Regardless of when you have enrolled on a course, you will have access to the course materials for the entire duration of your membership. So, if you pay for a one-year membership, you will have access for one year, renewing your membership for a second year means you will have access for two years, and so on.
No, you will not be locked out of any lesson or course. You will have access to all course materials throughout your membership, so there is no pressure to keep at the same pace as the specified lesson release dates. All we recommend is that you try to stick to the same schedule as other participants. The reason is they may have moved on to other lessons, thereby meaning you could miss out on the social aspects of the course s.
However, we anticipate that there will be a constant flow of participants working through different lessons and courses, so overall you are unlikely to miss out. We will also be running all courses again — so there really is no rush. There is no specified time that certificates will be awarded — instead, they are given to participants as and when they have answered all questions, even if this is long after the official end date.
As a member, you can take as many courses as you want with no additional costs. This means you only have to pay our membership fee to take an unlimited number of courses. There will be no further charges on top of the membership fee, no matter how many courses you decide to take.
Once enrolled in a course, you will gain access to a new lesson each week, which you are free to complete without any deadlines and no end date, either. Your browser is outdated.
