    Nice step for start ups to visualize their own idea on screen now entrepreneur can edit on his own to modify the product.

    Excellent course with easy examples and interesting meetings. The material is excellent but I would liked it if it has a pdf copy for me to save for later usage.
  • Aayush Goyal completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    The lesson is divided into four modules and for me, the best modules were second and third. The idea and concept of Design Sprint were amazing to learn and completely blew away my mind. Seriously, if I have known the concept of Design Sprint earlier, it would have saved a lot of time for us to build our product. All in all the course is a fairly a simple one and an introductory course in the field of Product Design and I was able to audit this course in almost two weeks. Cheers.

    It's a good beginners course, you have a lot of information that you will not learn in your school. Because this has a lot of theory about metrics and so on. I completed and I liked it. But now after a few months I think I should do it again because some things like metrics and data analytics and survey weren't saved in my head!

    Good course but do it 2times! :)

    Best introductory course on product design I've done so far! More hands-on activities would be awesome, especially for Google's Design Sprint.
