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.

Great course for beginners interested in UX design! This course focuses mostly on the phases of research which is what separates this discipline from from pure graphic design work.

Came to this course as an absolute beginner. Learnt a lot, but had to put in a lot of effort from my side since the course itself was not very engaging. The lectures can be a bit dry and would have benefitted from real-life examples and a slightly more conversational approach as opposed to just reading off the slides.

I really enjoyed this course! The professor was clear, concise, and offered lots of visual support for the material. My only critique is that the quizzes often asked very specific questions about vocabulary which varies from practice to practice in real world application.

Very very basic but gave a good overview of UX Design. Since I took this course to prepare for an interview, it was exactly what I needed. However, I'm not sure it's worth the cost for a certificate because it's so basic.

The course provides a great base knowledge but is not practical enough. I would recommend including some small projects or home works to the course.

Good quality of lectures and easy to understand them. However, there are some spelling errors and repetitive questions in the quiz.

Very "academic". Lack of real examples and updated materials (one link was even broken).

Imagine a history class where the lecture defines terms such as treaty, guerrilla tactics, muck racking, constitution but doesn’t tell you the events in history where these things actually happened. That’s what this class feels like.
I guess this class had good information but the format and presentation felt insanely impersonal and robotic.
First, the presentation was very sterile and, not gonna lie, less aesthetic than presentations from my engineering company. Not what I want to see from a course about creating good user experiences. And while the format is usable and efficient, it doesn’t appeal to me, the user, emotively and lacks the experience part of user experience.
Second, the whole thing feels like it is structured in a robotic protocol. It’s a lot of word, definition, word, definition, word, definition. There were only two 2 examples mentioned after 2 hours of content so it doesn’t feel like this is connected to real life activities. It’s all the same white background with black text of definition after definition. One of the lines repeated in every video is “users use interfaces to accomplish tasks” and remains that bland for all new content introduced.
Third, I’m through week 2 and I have no sense of what it is like to be a UX Designer and there has been 0 competence development. Sure, I have a list of activities that a UX Designer will perform but no clue or confidence on how to go about doing it, especially as a UX Designer.
It essentially goes like this: You need to collect user information. Great. To do this, prepare your discussion and dress professionally. Take notes. A survey can be done online, by walking up to people, or by phone. ????? Blanket statements like these give me absolutely no insight on how to do the job.
I get that it’s important to learn the lingo and understand the lexicon but I feel like there really should be some connection to tangible examples. Show me some example interviews, explain the goal, the questions, the result. I get that qualitative data can be found from taking notes on a discussion. But what do the notes look like? Am I asking them what their favorite birthday present was growing up? Please give me some direction on what a UX Designer will be doing.
I quit the course when they started defining range, median, and mode which I learned in second grade.

Very unsatisfied with this course. I wasnt able to build anything for my portfolio and I payed $50 for nothing. I was told I would get a certificate for paying $50 otherwise the course was free. Will not be using coursera again. I basically got my money stolen and all I got out of it was learning the difference between low fidelity and high fidelity prototypes. If I could give zero stars I would.

I feel like the 5 weeks material could be easily summed into a week. Most of the concepts taught were not in depth, nor were there any assignments with practical work related to UI given. I feel like i have only learnt basic definitions of terms.

This course is shallow, the presented format was not the best, the content was very vague and pretty much any generic definition on wikipedia , not practical, and even the interface was bad.

She could add pictures of examples. Slide reading is not a good way of teaching I think. And when it's a design related course it will be horrible if you teach only by reading slides.

Dr. Arriaga excels in structuring the course materials in a consistent and obvious manner. Her lectures are one of the more straightforward and well-structured introductory UX courses offered here. Her strengths and weaknesses are also seemingly reflected in the depth of materials and topics covered - she excels in the research aspect of UX (data gathering, types of data, and possibly analyses) but seems to mull over the design aspect of UX (lack of material, shorter lectures, and lack of assignments). Her Week 2 and Week 5 materials are very strong but her lectures related to design are a little lackluster. If anyone is looking to glean insight into the research aspect of UX, this will be an excellent introductory course. Shortcomings aside, I was very happy with the rigidity and consistency of her lectures and was satisfied with the course.

I am in the creative field, an architect and an urban planner. User interface design did not just help me understand the importance in a computer enhanced user interface but also in developing better solutions in every interface that a user come across. I personally loved this beginner course and the reading materials that was shared through this course. I look forward to learn more in the upcoming advanced sessions. Professor Dr. Rosa I. Arriaga did an excellent job in explaining UX design terms in the most simplest way to understand.
Designing cannot be ignored as a separate field, while it is a part of even the tiniest task we carry out. Every small task involves a user experience to it. Hence, I would definitely recommend this course anyone who has an eye for design.

Kursus ini menarik dan mengajarkan dasar desain ux atau user experience secara bertahap dan mendetail, mulai dari langkah-langkah untuk mendesain ui, teknik mendapatkan informasi apa yang dibutuhkan suatu user, bagaimana cara mendesain berdasarkan analisa yang telah dilakukan, dan bagaimana cara mengevaluasi desain sehingga apa yang diharapkan seorang user tercapai
This course is interesting and teaches the basics of ux design or user experience in stages and in detail, starting from the steps for designing a ui, techniques for getting what information a user needs, how to design based on the analysis that has been done, and how to evaluate the design so that what a user expects is achieved

This course was exactly as described. It provided a good overview of an approach to User Experience Design and helped to familiarize the student with relevant terminology. The time commitment was minimal (I think the estimates provided are on the high-end for time required), however, there was a lot of information provided for someone new to the area of study. After taking this course, I would an expect an individual would have a good idea as to whether they wished to pursue a more in depth study of the topics presented. Key points were reiterated throughout, the video presentations were well done and the quizzes were just challenging enough to ensure you paid attention.

I'm very glad to purchase this course. It really gives me the idea on how to initiate a design process in UX Design as well as the process of getting on the right cycle of the interface design. Both have its connection and the interface is the bridge bewtween the user and the experience. I already have the knowledge of how to define a user problem, start a design, proceed to the idea of creating a low-fidelity and high-fildelity prototypes and to deploy it for evaluation.
Thank you so much COURSERA and Georgia Institute of Technology for sharing this knowledge and opportunity to learners who's endeavor is to UX Design. More power and God bless. Purchasing my badge soon.

I liked the professor a lot and she is enthusiastic about this topic. I like how the course took a definition/model of design and then broke it down, with each week focused on a part of the design process. There are lots of links to additional information, some of which are quite good.
The information is covered very quickly and it would be nice to have it presented a little more slowly with examples to illustrate the concepts. The final week, the evaluation phase, could have been longer.
I could see how this sort of course would be great with an actual design project. For an intro to the topic, it was interesting and informative.

This course offers an overview of the 4 steps of Interaction Design. I really liked it! The concepts are easy to understand and there are concrete examples, especially in the first chapter, that one could easily picture for future projects. While I was doing the course, I read Interaction Design by Helen Sharp and I consider it a good exercise to go in deep with the theory that Dr. Arriaga gives. However, if you're looking to learn more detailed concepts like research techniques, Fogg behaviour grid or the parts of a wireframe, I highly recommend you take an advanced course.

Dr. Rosa Arriaga is super arcitulate teacher!! (And super stylish:) Thank you so much! Especially for repeating key points several times - that was very useful teaching technique. I was a complete novice in the UX field and I understood everything from the course easily! Maybe it was because I have a degree in Psychology and some phases of UX are very similar to concepts of experimental Psychology.
The amount of information is rather small so it is indeed only an introduction to the field so that you can understand what UX design is all about in general.
