About the Course

Responsive Web Design in Adobe XD is the sixth course in a 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 design a responsive website using Adobe XD, a popular design tool. You will complete the design process from beginning to end: empathizing with users, defining their pain points, coming up with ideas for design solutions, creating wireframes and prototypes, and testing designs to get feedback. By the end of this course, you will have a new design project to include in your professional UX portfolio. In addition, you’ll learn how to search for entry-level UX design jobs, create a resume that highlights your skills and accomplishments, and build your professional portfolio website. 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: - Apply each step of the UX design process (empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test) to create a responsive website. - Develop designs in a popular design tool, Adobe XD. - Plan information architecture and create sitemaps for website designs. - Apply common layouts for web pages. - Plan and conduct a usability study to gather feedback about designs. - Iterate on designs based on research insights. - Work with design systems in Adobe XD. - Add a new design project to your professional UX portfolio. - [Optional] Create or update a UX-focused resume. - [Optional] Learn how to search for and apply to introductory-level jobs in the field of UX. This course is suitable for beginner-level UX designers who have completed the previous five courses of the Google UX Design Certificate. Alternatively, learners need to have a strong foundational understanding of the design process; experience creating wireframes, mockups, and prototypes; and the ability to conduct usability studies. No previous experience with Adobe XD is required....

While this course contains much redundant information when viewed alongside the other courses in this certificate, the standalone information and practical assignments are valuable and holistic.

This was a good course. The pace really picked up from previous courses because we were mostly applying everything we have already learned and only learning to use a new tool (Adobe XD).

I think , they should deep down about system design. how to build them from scratch, how to jump a new system design when someone join a new company. And have to give thanks them for job section. I think this was the most important section though out the whole course.

It was a great experience working with a different tool (Adobe XD). I would have liked to have more time or exercises meant to emphasize the responsiveness dimension of the design.

REALLY repetitive.

Also, ironically, there is a notable lack of UX design in the course. For example: it's not easy to find where you left off if you close out the website. The quizzes will often use quite different terminology from the videos and expect students to make inferences about the language. The directions for portfolio of abysmally poor.

You can learn a lot, but do what they say not what they do!

The instructor is great, but the content is revisited from previous courses.

I probably enjoyed this course the least so far as I felt that it crammed a lot in and lost it's focus. For example, the process followed from courses 1-5 was completely covered in course 6 with the expectation that it would take 6 weeks; whereas, courses 1-5 took months to complete. I just felt like there were other ways that this course could have been laid out than as it currently stands (i.e, Adobe XD could have been combined with the previous courses and this course could focus on the web app of the mobile app that was previously developed, there could be a separate course on applying/preparing for UX jobs). I just feel like there is little new that was learned, and adding more projects onto our plate was a bit tedious/repetitive. I'm not saying that I don't want to have multiple projects, I'm saying that for the sake of this course, we should focus on learning new things and slim the projects down.

It is disappointing to join this course. Promised Adobe XD free and did not provide it. I had to purchse it to complete my course. There is no new learning - this module is repeat of earlier module. It is more to promoye Adobe XD. The instructions are hazy - what is demonstrated is very fast, can not be grasped and what is shown is different from the actual XD thatI I purchased. In the end I feel cheated by Google as well as Coursera.

I wrote a number of mails to Coursera and the said their High Level Team will help me get the XD and did not respond. If GOOGLE and COURSERA have that level of integrity - GOD save us.

I did not like very much this course. Firstly because it does not go deep into responsiveness like how to scale components from mobile to web nor does it tell much about breaking points. I expected to learn all these things before I took the course

Besides, the course is supposed to teach things we have formerly seen but I can imagine for people landing on this course withouth having done the previous ones it must be too complicated going backwards the whole time.

Finally, all this part about getting a job seems useful but it has nothing to do regarding responsiveness

I love learning. I really enjoyed this course. I enjoyed learning Adobe Xd. But my computer wasnt compatible. When i was submitting my assignments i recieved some horrible responses. Some classmates were very rude. Some classmates gave me 0s for no reason. One classmates told me i did a horible job with no constructive feed back. it took me much longer to finish this course because one classmate may pass me and the other gave me all 0s. And their comments were very rude and humiliating. So please i wish you could monitor how classmates interact.

The Course's content is pretty good as well as the instrucor.

The peer-review process is absolutely annoying and tedious. People seem to interpret clear assignment criteria in order to justify their opinions or do not even look at the content closely (e.g. criteria: At least one screen has 2 versions in different sizes—1 small version for mobile and 1 large version for desktop—for responsive design . Result: 0 points from first reviewer although mentioned screens were displayed next to each other.)

What took 5 weeks in Module 2 is expected of us to be done in 5 days..? It says “week 1” but we are gently ushered to submit our assignment a few days earlier.

When is one supposed to choose a topic, generate interview questions, find participants, schedule them all in 1-2 days, analyze the data by creating empathy maps and user problems etc ?

Why the sudden rush, Google? I understand that things need to be done faster a second time but 5 times faster? This is not a sprint design.

I wasn't so excited about this course because Adobe XD was difficult for me to use, especially after using a software as easy as Figma. They need to work on deploying a website link for it. The desktop app kept hanging and delaying my work.

Lastly, i never received my 9 months free subscription as promised, despite numerous emails to coursera. It left a bad taste in my mouth about your services. I ended up paying for it, Still very disappointed.

This course is a joke. Instead of teaching and foucing on responsive web design, they are repeating all previously learned stuff e.g making paper wireframes, digitel wireframes, resreach, prototype, testing, improvising. its been 4th week still i have not learned how the responsive web design works except for creating different devise wireframes which I totally understand due to new software you need a little bit of familiarity but other then that nothing new I have learned. They should change the name of this course to refresher in adobe XD rather than responsive in adobe XD. I mean they are literary making me do the entire project again which is not needed at all feel like they are just dragging the course instead of finishing it. I don't like it because I am paying to learn something new and required content, not to repeat it.

These courses get worse and worse as they go on. Course 6 was terribly out of order. Assignments I had NEVER heard of were being asked of me. Methods I never learned about I was expected to perform. It was until I decided to skip around the course that I discovered many things were so unbelievably out of order that the course could not be completed unless you went through cherry picking assignments until they had eventually all been completed. I've been in school for many different skills, this is the WORST learning experience (ironic, I know) I have ever had. It's straight up sucks.

Felt like this course was way too repetitive of the FIgma unit in the certification path. Perhaps I'd have a better opinion of the instructor and the course if I hadn't just done all the same work in the Figma course.

I think this was a very repetitive course, it made me very tedious, only 3 videos were really useful, of which they teach how to use XD

This course forces you to learn quite a bit about Adobe XD which likely will be obsolete/replaced by Figma.

This course will teach you the fundamentals of Adobe XD. The course is well written, well paced, and provides a comprehensive review for those continuing on from previous courses.

However, I've noticed an increase in plagiarism and blank submissions from other users enrolled in the certificate pathway. While I recognize that UX design can be a lucrative profession, these students detract from the course's overall quality. There is no easy solution to this problem given the sheer volume of enrollment in Google's certificate programs. Just something to keep in mind before enrolling in the course.

I've always loved versatiiity of professionals who can work with different tools for the same or similar tasks. Responsive Web Design in Adobe XD showed how incredible that versatility could be. Being able to design a responsive website with Adobe XD from scratch for the first time implies that I can now work well with two leading software: Adobe XD and Figma in UX Design.

Learning Adobe XD through this course was super easy. Its a great tool to design with. So many useful features, excellent Adobe tutorials to learn from. Responsive Design was another excellent concept I learnt and used in my second project for this course. Finally, the tips to create a UX resume and job search are extremely relevant and useful at this point of the program.

This course was probably the most challenging as it required combining all five previous courses into one culmulative case study. I liked that it allowed us to gain experience in Adobe XD and designing responsive websites. It's alot of information, but good information. Bookmark everything, skim and review in more detail when you have time later.

This is a good course, especially if you are doing the specialization. Some assignments are confusingly presented, as it is not clear if you are looking for a new design or to continue the process you were already following from the other certification courses. But it is a great review of all the previous concepts.

Absolutely loved this course. It was a great experience. The speakers were good designers who shared their vision from beginning to end. I do it just for a few weeks, and I am happy to receive my certificate. I will recommend those who want to learn UI UX Design from scratch. Thank you, Googlers!

It was my first ever course of a responsive web design. The course curriculum is well designed. Instructors and mentors are very cooperative, everyone did their job amazingly. I learned a lot from this course. Thanks to COURSERA for providing such wonderful online opportunities to the learners.

Dave was an outstanding instructor—thank you! This was my favorite course yet. Seeing all the skills and design knowledge come together in one course is very rewarding, esp for someone who doesn't have a background in UX. I loved it and the access to Adobe XD was a bonus. Thank you again.
