Weeks 1 - 4
This course starts with an introduction to user experience design from the standpoint of human-centered design thinking. By placing users first, you can make sure digital products function as intended. Your first UI design principles will combine with your UX knowledge as you approach your first design challenge. The best practices of user research will also be taught in this section.
Weeks 5 - 7
Prototyping is a fundamental technique of user experience design. Starting with paper prototyping, you'll begin learning how to design wireframes for digital products. You'll also be introduced to computer software to make the prototyping experience as seamless as possible. User research will help determine the design edits made during the prototyping phase as you design towards a usable and accessible digital product.
Weeks 8 - 10
The course finishes your foundational knowledge by bringing iterative design into the fold. This is where user testing comes into play, which is one of the most efficient tools in a UX Designer's belt for optimizing a product for the end user. Your final project will apply your learnings to a real industry problem to find a design solution using your newly minted UX skills. Presenting your solution will round out your course experience with all the practical knowledge a user experience designer needs.
