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.
For an introductory course, this is very efficient and effective in learning terminologies and get a good high-level understanding of Process, types and common techniques used in Design process :)

I don't know that I would call this a whole course. The amount of content in this introduction is so basic that I wonder how much I am still missing before I jump into UX design. There must be more to it than this.
By Vikram P•
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.
By Wendy Y•
The content itself was decent, but the quizzes need some help. In addition to some formatting issues, some of the questions were not intuitive in that they were easily misunderstood.
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.

I am a total beginner. It was nice to receive an overview. The slides were not helpful and I had a hard time to follow - needed to focus very well (which is also good, ofc ;))

Concepts are very high-level and instructor seems to be reading from the slides.
If you like to read you won't miss anything if you just read the transcript at your own pace.

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.
By Kiki C•
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.
By Luka T•
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.
By Nguyen N L H•
very basic concepts and theories. good to have a quick into to the field but not enough to have some applicable knowledge. true to its name 'intro to UX design'
By Tanasup S•
This course is great for who never learn about UX but it is too easy for person who learned some of this knowledge before. Some reading website is not active.
By Nikhil S•
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)
By Mercedes A•
Good introduction, I felt that a lot of the material was mostly common sense, nothing really new. (For the average unexperienced in design person.
By Suraj T•
Just the right amount of complexity for a beginner. However, the delivery was rather uninspiring. But that might come down to personal taste.
By ruby b•
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.
By Roxie W•
Lean too heavily towards theory instead of practice. I do think peer-graded assignments work better than quiz in term of UX lessons...
By Christina B•
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.
By Emilio G•
The videos did not seem very interactive. The teacher just read the slides. Good as an introduction, but not very hand-on course.
By sharfi s•
The content is informative but the presentation is boaring. I would suggest adding more visuals and examples for the videos.
By Roy L•
The class is super thorough in terms of the basics, however, the interactions could be improved from Week 3 onwards. :)
By Deleted A•
Overall, it was an informative course. However, I found it to be very theoretical and sometimes too detailed-oriented.
By Natália P•
As a product designer the concepts were not very new. But it was interesting to see how they apply to digital designs.
