TOP REVIEWS FROM START THE UX DESIGN PROCESS: EMPATHIZE, DEFINE, AND IDEATE
A great foundational wealth of knowledge on how to start the UX Design process. This information really helps you build a framework for the coursework within the Google UX Design certification.
Very good course with a really solid project to follow through each week. Going through all the steps helped me think about project design with an eye towards the user experience in new ways.
The research techniques and frameworks in this section were incredible, it is always intimidating to start with a blank canvas but thanks to this I can have a working method.
Thank you providing such material I learned many new things and had challenges to become better. I wasn't aware of many things on steps to understand users.
