In case you are unfamiliar with the core concepts of this site, here are some definitions.

User Experience Design (UX)

The field of user experience represents an expansion and extension of the field of usability, to include the holistic perspective of how a person feels about using a system. The focus is on pleasure and value as well as on performance. The exact definition, framework, and elements of user experience are still evolving.

Interaction Design

In some views a subset of UX Design.

… interaction design — the practice of designing interactive digital products, environments, systems, and services. … interaction design focuses on … the design of behaviour.
