Summary
A user interface (UI) is what allows a user to interact with a program and a UI designer is responsible for making those interactions as clear and enjoyable as possible. In this tutorial, you’ll learn a bit more about what UI design is and the tools available in Unity to help you create UIs. Then, you’ll open your project and begin customizing your scene.
By the end of this tutorial, you'll be able to:
  • Define "UI" and the role of user interfaces in real-time 3D experiences.
  • Differentiate between UI design and other related disciplines, like User Experience Design and Information Architecture.
  • Distinguish between Unity's three available UI systems: uGUI (or Unity UI), IMGUI (or “Immediate Mode” GUI), and UI Toolkit.
