This advanced design course serves 8 – 12 senior and graduate students from visual arts and architecture programs. The students adopted a user-centric approach by creating mobile and web apps that followed an iterated process of understanding, ideating, deciding, prototyping, and testing. In the end, they learned a design-thinking-based approach that can help them solve real-world problems.

Seminar – Design/Build: Museum of the Moment
In this seminar, the students conceptualize, design, and create a virtual museum – the Museum of the Moment. Each group of students developed a conceptual design that connects people in different geological locations or times. I worked with Professor Michael Strand to create the course plan and assignment. During the semester, I instructed the students on graphic and UI/UX design, and helped them finish the published programs.
Very skillful and teaches clearly.
Aaron is very technically proficient, as well as interesting and fun.
This was a really interesting and beneficial class! … I certainly hope to continue using the information I learned in this class, and not just leave it behind after the class is over.
Nothing Aaron was amazing and he should win an award.
He goes above and beyond with giving video feedback, working late at night to help his students, I recommend all my friends to take his class to see his teaching style, it works super well
…when he does teach he goes into a lot of detail which is helpful when creating our own projects. Another strength is that he is really good problem solver.
He is always there to help and answer questions. he knows a lot about the programs we are using so he can be very helpful
Mr. Yang is a wonderful teacher!
