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.
It was fair introduction to UI / UX. I moved away from front-end development a long time ago but wanted to know about the new techniques used prior to starting that sort of development these days.

The information provided was comprehensive and useful, but I found the presentation to be incredibly boring. It took me several days to get through the material because I couldn't focus on more than one or two videos in a sitting. I would have liked to have seen one or two real-world examples (particularly on building a website) taken through the entire course. I liked the short videos, but I would have felt more engaged if the course included other activities such as games, concept matching, interviews, or examples of laboratory experiments.

The resources are very helpful. The contents are also interesting, but at times I found myself fighting to stay awake when watching the video lessons. The introductory part of the course (before going in depth with the 4 main points of UX Design) is specially tedious and repetitive, and I have the feeling that it could have been summarized in one third.
All in all, I think as an introductory course is well worth the time.
Thank you very much for making this course available to everyone.
Enjoyed the course! Crisp and straightforward video explanations. Coursework also provides ample online resources that one can revisit. I only wish there were some prototyping exercised that students could work on and then get back to each other for some peer evaluation. That would have enhanced the learning even further. Nevertheless, this course has engaged me well enough that I am interested to learn whatever the next level encompasses.

The reading materials were a little bit disordered. I had an impression that the links were given just to show big amount of reading. Some of the materials were repeting itself on different stages not usually combined with topic learnt at the time.
Materials to read should be a little bit more sorted out, some of the pages were not working or the materials were gone.

Although this course gives an introduction into UX, the course content contains many spelling, grammatical, and typographic errors. Additionally, some quiz questions can be ambiguous and unnecessary. Some questions appear multiple times in a single quiz, while others seem to be filler. They test the student's memory, rather than her/his comprehension of a concept.
This course was a good overall overview of the User Exp. Design process. It is useful for a process of proposal writing, but it didn't give me real insights into the techniques itself. A better insight into the methods (for example by short example videos) would make the course more tangible. Nevertheless a very well structured and presented introduction course!

Ironically, this course needs a UX overhaul, along with a good proofreading session and pedagogical alignment between the questions and response choices. Sometimes the pop-up questions cut off the instructor mid-sentence, and many visuals are referred to but missing, including the two referenced videos in the prototyping section.
By Kristina K•
It is a very basic course of User Experience Design, which can explain fundamentals of UX-design process. The course gives a lot of theoretical knowledge, but lack of real examples. It is a good start for those, who are interested in a new profession, but after this course you need to take another, more advanced and deep course.

The material presented is really informative and through for a introductory course. The layout can be improved. (Ex: more graphics or better breakdown visually of the vocabularies). A lot of the information with the lesson are all over the place. Need to provide more examples for better visualization of the lessons discussed.

Hello, the course provided a good coverage of the key technical terms and gave a nice introduction to the field. However I found the video content dated and unengaging, and a number of the links and resources have since expired. All in all though a valuble introduction that can be completed in a matter of hours!
By Serhat E•
It is a very nice, basic course (maybe too basic). I wish Alternative Designs and Prototyping sections were expanded some more. One feedback to lecturer is to look at the camera directly; she was constantly looking sideways to read the text. It was very distracting for me. Nevertheless, Thanks Georgia Tech!!!
By Anisa C•
Pretty good course. Enjoyable to work through with great additional resources. Spelling errors were frequent and a bit distracting and the transcript could do with another edit. No practical tasks to complete but i believe the paid version has some. Great first experience with Coursera and Georgia Tech.

It's very useful but at times is a little boring and its hard to keep up. The background is too monotonous and some slides are an eyesore for designers. I noticed one typo (effect instead of affect). You have to be committed to finish, I almost didn't. And I passed all quizzes on the first try.
By Preston L•
While the videos were good at introducing certain concepts to a novice, I found the quizzes to be lacking in helping one remember useful information from the videos. For the reading, many articles and websites were linked to, but on more than one occasion I found these to be a bit dated.
By Hannah E•
Very good course to get a general overview of UX Design and Research. Specific terms introduced and defined and good lists of electronic resources. Was disappointed with charts and figures used to illustrate concepts (i.e. not always easy to understand purpose of graphic or confusing).
By Gautam K•
Some of the concepts were explained well but others went a bit too quickly without examples. Thinks like data gathering and prototyping are understood by most people but other slightly complex topics like the wizard of oz could have been explained a bit better with a simple example.
By Omar A•
As a beginner in this field, I know now how can I start but I think the course its not full covered most of the question are not working I like the teacher I really like it but I think it can be improved in the future thanks for everyone who made this course and thanks to Coursera
There were numerous typos, bad formatting or other mistakes in the lecture slides. Additionally, some of the links to reading materials were broken and many of the materials listed seemed quite an odd choice. Still, I believe this course gave a good overview of the topic.
By Bharath N S•
Very basic course, could have learnt the whole content in a textbook directly in one hour. This is an explanation of some text and one method and didnt have to be a course. Could have contained more learning than just explain all basic concepts available online in Google
By David V C•
The information is valuable. However, it may feel a bit dated (specially the examples and the links they provide), and it might be too compact. A lesson includes too much information in a very short time, so it's a good idea to watch the same lessons more than once.
By Andrew B•
It's difficult to follow the instructor as they are reading their script. I would prefer a more natural delivery. Content was good, but I think a little more effort could be put towards the visuals as the existing diagrams were at times difficult to understand.
By AUBREY X•
Good introductory class. Clearly structured and have relevant quiz questions to test on key concepts.
However, I was expecting more in-depth content on these fundamental concepts, and more relevant and modern examples of these in principles in applications
By Joseph D•
While it seems this course offered a well rounded look at the iterative User Experience/Interface design cycle, the interchangeable technical jargon was ultimately confusing and I felt that a lack of definitive terms detracted from the final product.
By Joshua Y•
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.
