    This course was excellent. Although the assignments were very hands on and useful, they proved to be a bit too demanding, leading to some students not finishing on time. This led to the evaluation taking ages, and thus I had to pay for a month extension. This is the reason I’m not giving it 5 stars, not the assignments themselves, which I liked, but that fact that I had to wait literally weeks for other people to grade my assignments, which costed me money. I’m also not very happy with the fact that courses 4, 5 and 6 don’t still have an open session, so I’m basically blocked for more than 2 weeks and I can’t continue my path. For that reason, I will cancel my subscription until these courses are open.

    I totally recommend this course. You learn a lot, the teacher is amazing, and there are a lot of activities to actually practice the methods and topics. The peer reviewing system helps you to learn much more from the exercises. If you want to become a professional in this field, this is a very appropriate course, at a really affordable price.

    Great for Understanding how to conduct usability testing, also given some great example that allows me to understand completely what the instructor means.

    This course is very interesting. It gives you an overview of how to run user tests. The workload is too much skewed towards the end of the course, which makes it a bit too hard to complete. There were some things missing in the materials, I think. For example, I didn’t learn how to properly code critical events during user tests, so I had to just “figure out” what to write down. Qualitative data analysis was also not 100% clear, so I fell back on my intuition. Nevertheless, I found the skills in this course really valuable.

    It’s really great opportunity to study how to conduct a real usability test. This course was the hardest compare to previous in this specialization but I learned a lot through it! Highly recommended!

    Very interesting class, although the organization is far from perfect (too much to do during the last week, the instructions are wanting).
