At the end of this course you will have created a user research spreadsheet, a User Journey Map, a user persona and finally, using all of the parts you created, a user design presentation.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

The educational activities are designed to ensure that there must be a successful take away for participants. I have greater confidence with incorporating educational technologies in my teaching.

I really found this hands-on experience nice and to-the-point. I would definitely recommend this to any person who is starting out with user experience-related work.
I would have liked to see an example of the information that could be pulled from the overall demographical data from Medicare.gov.
