Discover UX research and design tools and learn the value of user-centred design
On this UX course, you’ll be introduced to key topics in the fields of UX research and design, and build your skills and understanding of UX.
Learn how to do effective UX research and conduct UX interviews
Led by experts at the University of Michigan, you’ll learn exactly what’s involved in conducting effective UX research.
You’ll learn about the process of conducting UX interviews and evaluating and analysing products and systems using the core principles of good design.
Discover the art of UX sketching
As well as exploring the role and skills of UX researchers, you’ll have the chance to learn about UX sketching and prototyping for developing new design concepts.
As you explore the fascinating the work involved in UX Design, you’ll discover new design solutions and learn how to create UX prototypes at different levels of fidelity (different stages of intricacy).
Explore UI design Heuristics
This UX training course will also enable you to probe deeper into design principles as you learn about design heuristics and how they should impact the UX design process.
Through an exploration of the different phases of UX research and design, this course will ultimately enable you to discover how to learn from inevitable design mistakes, improve on them, and work towards creating a product with a great UX.
This course is designed for anyone who wants to gain UX training and experience in UX principles and processes, as well as UX research.
Learn how to better meet user needs through data-driven user-centred design
To design a product or system which is effective, it is vital to understand the specific needs and abilities of the people using them.
This UX training course will develop your ability to interact with your users by understanding what they need, what they don’t need, as well their likes, and dislikes.
Discover a user-centred design approach
Led by experts in UX design at the University of Michigan, you’ll discover practical techniques for better understanding your user, including user needs assessments and qualitative research methodology.
As you consider how human behaviour relates to UX design you’ll identify the value of qualitative UX research for understanding user needs.
Learn how to conduct effective UX interviews
Alongside a global group of learners, you’ll discover various data gathering techniques for learning more about your user, including UX interview questions, protocol, and technique.
You’ll learn best practice approaches for conducting effective UX interviews and in-situ user observations, as well as how to use affinity diagramming to analyse your findings.
Implement data-driven UX design
As you learn how to extract data from research, interviews, and observations of your users, you’ll develop your ability to translate these learnings into your UX design practice.
By the end of the course, you’ll understand not only how to extract data from your users, but also how to use this data to meet user needs through data-driven UX.
This course is designed for anyone looking to gain experience in UX principles, techniques and processes, but specifically in the area of UX research and interviews.
Enhance your skills in user interaction design and development
Want to learn the secret to great UX design? This UX course from the University of Michigan will teach you the systematic process of nurturing a product from its basic concept to a functioning prototype.
Define user needs and create a UX storyboard
You’ll begin the course by learning how to identify the problem you’re trying to solve for your user and discovering the UX techniques you can use to develop a design that solves it.
You’ll get hands-on experience in techniques like scenario development, UX sketching, and storyboarding which you can use to translate your understanding of your users’ needs into an impactful user experience.
Build skills in UX wireframing and prototype design
As you discover the UX wireframing process, you’ll learn how to turn UX wireframes into prototypes that can be used for evaluating your designs in user testing.
The course covers the process of user testing using paper prototypes for early testing feedback as well as more interactive prototypes that can be iterated on to create a final, high-quality design.
Learn low to high fidelity UX prototyping
By the end of the course, you’ll have developed your ability to build a product from its basic concept to a high-fidelity mockup and interactive prototype.
You’ll be able to solve and test conceptual issues in prototyping and design and refine a product that is ready to pass on to a team of developers for implementation.
This course is designed for anyone looking to gain experience in UX principles, techniques and processes, but specifically in the areas of UI design, UX wireframing, and prototyping.
Learn how to create, analyse, and report on data from UX research surveys
UX surveys offer UX designers the chance to uncover user needs and user attitudes towards a product or system concept they use before connecting these needs to user characteristics.
This course, created and led by the University of Michigan, will help you build your skills in survey methodology for UX research.
Learn how to conduct UX research at scale
You’ll explore the basics of creating an effective UX survey, including when and how to use surveys, what questions to ask, who to ask and how to take on research at scale.
As you learn how to conduct a survey of your own design, you’ll build your skills in developing A/B testing techniques as well as analysing and reporting on large scale UX surveys and unmoderated studies.
Use online surveys and web analytics to improve UX
The course will also introduce you to using web analytics to gain
UX insights remotely from a large number of users.
As you learn more about behavioural analytics and preference testing, you’ll discover how to critique user surveys so that you can extract actionable insights to inform your UX design.
This course is designed for anyone looking to gain experience in UX principles, techniques and processes, specifically in the areas of UX research and online UX testing at scale.
