About the Course

Conduct UX Research and Test Early Concepts is the fourth course in a certificate program that will equip you with the skills you need to apply to entry-level jobs in user experience (UX) design. In this course, you will learn how to plan and conduct a usability study to gather feedback about designs. Then, you will modify your low-fidelity designs based on insights from your research. Current UX designers and researchers at Google will serve as your instructors, and you will complete hands-on activities that simulate real-world UX design scenarios. Learners who complete the seven courses in this certificate program should be equipped to apply for entry-level jobs as UX designers. By the end of this course, you will be able to: - Plan a UX research study, including the project background, research goals, research questions, Key Performance Indicators, methodology, participants, and script. - Explain the importance of respecting privacy and user data. - Conduct a moderated and unmoderated usability study. - Take notes during a usability study. - Create affinity diagrams to group and analyze data. - Synthesize observations from research and come up with insights. - Develop persuasive presentation skills to share research insights. - Modify low-fidelity designs based on research insights. - Continue to design a mobile app to include in your professional portfolio. To be successful in this course, you should complete the previous three courses in the certificate program. Or, you need to have an ability to conduct user research to inform the creation of empathy maps, personas, user stories, user journey maps, problem statements, and value propositions; as well as an ability to create wireframes and low-fidelity prototypes on paper and in Figma....

This part of the course was a bit slow comparing to other, but neat explanation by Jason and other googlers made me hold tight and complete this course successfully. Thanks Coursera & Google for this.

I had no idea what usability study was, and it was necessary, every term seemed new to me. But after taking this course I'm a little bit more closer to becoming a better UX designer.

Lots of redundant information. This course is largely filler and designed to lengthen the overall course. Not recommended. This certificate program has been a waste of time.

This course is a rehash of the previous 2 courses in this entire certificate program. Its just explaining the same concepts over and over again and not useful.

Out of all the courses so far this seemed a little unnecessary, there were good intentions behind this course but it just ended up being tedious.

Is it really that hard to include an example of a completed assignment? Me and everyone I reviewed were confused quite a bit.

Hi, it's been almost 2 months but I've not received grades from peer-review and can't get the certificate! Please let me know when can I receive my grades because I don't have much money to spend on the course just to wait for the grades! Thanks
