Interaction design, often abbreviated as IxD, is “the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services.” Beyond the digital aspect, interaction design is also useful when creating physical products, exploring how a user might interact with it.

One name that defines systems and services in the digital world is Google, which has been playing a vital role globally in shaping the user experiences. It makes people’s life easier by making things in an easier and faster way and making the world smaller. One of the most successful innovation in technology is the computer, which is used for us to access the internet. Many use the internet, especially students, people looking for a job, or a business man who needs ideas or further information regarding something. All of which is been done by Google. Google serves as a guideline, and source of information and ideas.

National Institute of Design, Assam paved way for a beginning of an academic association with Google to bring together a learning process for young thinking minds to bridge the gap between academic needs and industry demands. An online session on “UX and Interaction Design” was conducted by NID Assam in association with Google. The 2 hours intense and interactive session was held on 22 February 2022.

The highly successful session was moderated by Mr. Nitin Vishwakarma, Discipline Lead, Communication Design
