Overview
Discover the basics of user experience
User experience, known as UX, makes a huge difference to whether a digital product, or project, succeeds. On this course, you will learn what UX is and why it’s so important. You’ll learn the foundations of UX design and what distinguishes good from bad UX. You will also explore the UX design process; user research, designing your experience, using your goals and ideas to draw wireframes and then building usable prototypes.

Finally, we will look at the different techniques you can use to test and develop your designs, so that they’re ready to release to the market.

This course is for those seeking to develop their entrepreneurial skills, preparing to enter the workplace or looking to change careers. No previous experience or qualifications required.
