Hacker – Noun: One Who Adds an Appropriate Application of Ingenuity to a Problem.

Our first-ever UXHackathon in April was a big success. Brought to you by the Visual Communication Department’s UX degree faculty and students in collaboration with our friends from Austin’s User Experience and Interactive Design community.

The hacking goal was to advance and enhance the online college experience for Austin Community College. And a big congratulations to Hackathon winner Jesse Beaman.     

VisCom students and faculty, as well as industry friends, participated in the Hackathon project teams in various capacities. Enthusiastic friends and family volunteered as usability testing participants for the teams to validate concepts and ideas.
