Mark Newman is incredible. The course is brief and to the point. Everything that is covered is done exceptionally well. Further reading is provided if more learning is desired. Great start to the specialization in user experience.

Great intro. Engaging and interesting, with fun but doable practical projects. I feel I've already learnt some important skills for UX research and design, as well as getting an intro to the basic concepts and underpinnings.

Fue un poco tedioso aprender todas estas cosas porque no están directamente relacionadas con mi área, tuve que hacer 2 veces las últimas tareas, pero pude comprender y aprender mejor. Es un buen curso, muy bien explicado.

Simply put, you are sitting in user point of view while looking up a web page. The way your design becomes eye catching for reaching high performance of the page and get users to come back.

The course is great the only thing that bothers me is the system used to evaluate student's exercises. Most people don't give feedback they only write simple answers like "good, nice, ok".

I loved the assignment and course content. This course was amazing, but the faculty interaction was missing. Peers do not judge our assignments thoroughly.
