Overview

The UI/UX Design Specialization brings a design-centric approach to user interface and user experience design, and offers practical, skill-based instruction centered around a visual communications perspective, rather than on one focused on marketing or programming alone. In this sequence of four courses, you will summarize and demonstrate all stages of the UI/UX development process, from user research to defining a project’s strategy, scope, and information architecture, to developing sitemaps and wireframes. You’ll learn current best practices and conventions in UX design and apply them to create effective and compelling screen-based experiences for websites or apps. User interface and user experience design is a high-demand field, but the skills and knowledge you will learn in this Specialization are applicable to a wide variety of careers, from marketing to web design to human-computer interaction. Learners enrolled in the UI/UX Design Specialization are eligible for an extended free trial (1 month) of a full product suite of UX tools from Optimal Workshop. Details are available in Course 3 of the Specialization, Web Design: Strategy and Information Architecture.

A good overview to learn design skills

There are some highlights I learned from the specialization:

- Very high-quality lectures. The professor shares a lot of stories with high layers of depth. You will not get bored watching the videos again and again. I still need to watch those videos in the future.

- You will learn that design is not for aesthetics' sake, like a lot of portfolios displayed on Dribble. Rather, design is for usability and user experience's sake.

- The seventh course in this Specialization is quite redundant. There are so many statistical concepts covered but not really essential.

- The final project will teach you some first hand experiences to build a project step by step. It takes quite a while for me to complete this, not because it's difficult, it's just I was procrastinating.

- Make sure you spend certain hours every week to learn.
