UX Design for Beginners

Think you're creative, but not enough to be a Designer? Think design is only about how something looks? Well maybe it's time you think differently!

Listen

There's a lot to learn: about design, about people, about psychology, about the rules and conventions for making products for people.

Practice

Once you know enough, it's time to test yourself and your peers. This is the part most people think Designers do all day. That may or may not be nonsense.

Study

Odds are good that your ideas weren't quite right. This is where you find out: by asking better questions; by learning that more than one take is also known as 'making progress'.

Course Overview

In this course, you'll learn the fundamentals of user experience and interaction design the way your mother would want. You'll tackle problems and work through group activities, discussions, and critiques, along with bite-sized informative and interactive lectures. But don't think you're off free when class ends! After each session you'll dive into 'knowledge work' that will sharpen your mind while introducing you to the thought leaders who design products people love.
