Thanks for all, is a great course, thanks Coursera and thanks for each opportunity.

I really liked the way this course was organized. It offered a good mix of multiple choice quizzes as well as actual hands-on activities with peer evaluation and feedback. The videos provided a ton of real-life examples that helped quickly lodge the material into long-term memory which was very helpful. I am looking forward to the next course in this series.

Informative and task-oriented!

You will definitely improve your UI skills level!
