8.6/10 (Our Score)
Product is rated as #12 in category UI / UX

In this course you will learn and practice several techniques for user interface evaluation. First we start with techniques that can be applied alone or in a design team, including action analysis, walkthroughs, and heuristic evaluation. Then we move on to user testing, including learning from a series of usability tests carried out in a real usability lab, and techniques to carry out your own tests even without a lab. Finally, we wrap up the discussion of evaluation and of UI Design in the specialization as a whole by looking at the question of how to set and measure usability goals, and in turn, when a design is usable enough to release it.

    This course was very thorough and covered A LOT of material. The course is very challenging, in epth and comprehensive. The only think lacking is more opportunities to create portfolio projects.

    The course (the set of 4 courses) started out SO good. The pace was quick, content and format engaging, and it showed you from the perspective of “hey, this is what we are looking at in real life, here are the pros and cons to look for, etc”. It was great! By course 3 it was getting so bogged down with BLAH BLAH BLAH that I could hardly see straight. Suddenly we went from engaging content to mind numbing boredom. The kind where keeping your eyes open, or even clicking that ‘next video’ link, was enough to set your whole body into a rigor mortis of NOOOOOOOOOOO. : ( Which is really disappointing because UI/UX is interesting!! Basically this went from hands on tech vocational training to the doldrums of a standard school format (which is proven ineffective and doesn’t give you the skills you need you have to learn those AFTER you complete the schooling) The videos just seemed to go on and on in this way. I lost all concept of gaining knowledge and it became a marathon of trying to inch my way forward and to hit the finish line. I don’t understand how we went from such a strong start to what came after. Course 1 was the best. I was really excited about everything. Then over time it’s like the content just sort of got left to drift and fall flat and not just be TO THE POINT. Overall some of the content was still A+ but just lost in the way content was approached/delivered. I truly believe this could be fixed and the course could be stellar throughout.
