CS 160, UC Berkeley

Professor Eric Paulos led this popular, 200-student, project-based course where students worked iteratively on smartphone and smartwatch app designs focused on medical and health themes. Following a user-centered design approach, students worked in teams throughout the semester alongside stakeholders and users to develop 39 inspirational new smartphone and smartwatch applications.

Hack@ Brown 2016

The focus of Hack @Brown is learning, not competition. This is the first hackathon for most participants. That made having a light-weight and easy to use tool essential. On a compressed timeframe, students wanted to focus on practicing new skills and visually expressing their ideas rather than learning the intricacies of how a tool worked.

Figma is great both for students with little experience and those who are more experienced. The tool itself is not a barrier. All you need to do work is the internet and it is easy to get started designing.
