About the Course

The focus of this course is to introduce the learner to User Experience (UX) Design User Experience design is design that is user centered. The goal is to design artifacts that allow the users to meet their needs in the most effective efficient and satisfying manner. The course introduces the novice to a cycle of discovery and evaluation and a set of techniques that meet the user's needs. This course is geared toward the novice. It is for learners that have heard about "user experience" or "user interface" design but don't really know much about these disciplines. The course mantra is that “Design is a systematic and data driven process.” Design is systematic because it is based on a set of techniques and also on a cycle of discovery. In this course the learner is introduced to the four step user interface design cycle. Along the way learners are exposed to a set of techniques to gather information about a) what the user needs b)how to design and model interfaces based on these and then how to evaluate the design to ascertain that the user's goals are met. These techniques are tools that are used in a standardized manner and give us the data we use in our design. This means that anyone (regardless of their current training) that is willing to learn these techniques and follow the proposed cycle can be a UX designer!...

The best introduction classes, gives an overall idea about UI/UX. Grateful for the efforts taken by the Georgia Tech and Coursera. Looking forward to see more courses related to my career. Thank you.

This is an insightful introductory course to User Experience Design. While it is just an introduction, the lessons and the examples provided were comprehensive, leaving you with a thirst for more.

The course provides a good overview of UX, but there are hardly any activities. The activities are limited only to Quiz. There should be peer graded assignments. Also, quiz questions need to be better.

This would have been more comfortable delivered in nine to ten, 45-minute segments. The shorter videos made the course feel endless. At least I learned that Coursera has terrible UX design.

The content is shallow, the course will be better if it incorporates real case studies and the application of UX design tools. Anyways, this is generally nice for a free course.

1 - Needs More Animations and better visuals

2 - Some videos that are 8 or 9 mins long can be broken down into smaller videos of 4-5 mins

3 - Needs better real Life examples.

Very basic. Good if you just want to understand terms and how the process works at a high-level. Not good if you are interested in learning how to actually do any of this.

Would like to engage with more hands-on applications of the ideas presented. Sometimes difficult to connect the academic, abstract taxonomy with real-world processes.

I expected a bit more from the introductory course. I gained a slight better understanding of what user experience is all about, but I hoped to gain a deeper insight.

While the course is basic, the tests don't test user concepts (for example the order of the 4 step design process is asked 10+ times through the 5 modules)

Good introduction, I felt that a lot of the material was mostly common sense, nothing really new. (For the average unexperienced in design person.

Just the right amount of complexity for a beginner. However, the delivery was rather uninspiring. But that might come down to personal taste.

Its a good theory course but would be fun if more practical examples are given with some creative use of infographics or any other media.

Lean too heavily towards theory instead of practice. I do think peer-graded assignments work better than quiz in term of UX lessons...

Useful to get a sense of what UXD is, but not much else. It is VERY basic and also very short - you can easily complete it in a day.

The videos did not seem very interactive. The teacher just read the slides. Good as an introduction, but not very hand-on course.

The class is super thorough in terms of the basics, however, the interactions could be improved from Week 3 onwards. :)

As a product designer the concepts were not very new. But it was interesting to see how they apply to digital designs.

Good for really newcomers but also possible to catch some details for a bit experienced professionals

Материала мало и много воды, много вопросов тестов высосано из пальца.

Je m'attendais plus à une formation orientée sur le design des UI

This course was too basic, despite being an introductory course.
