The course gives you best practices while doing UX research. With the usability study templates, you are able to summarise all of the participants' key insights and recommendations.
Explenations,resources on to the point.Such a great learning through the course.Also the instructor explaining why we do something and why do not.Again,Great explanations!Thank you.

Useful information but it was repetitive and monotonous.
by Tricia B•
This course was probably my least favorite so far. The material is generally pretty good, but like someone else's review said, it repeats content quite a bit. They've also been rearranging and adding material recently, but haven't removed some of the old content that's the exact same, so that added to the repeatability. I also think that if you don't get started on Week 2 basically when you start Week 1, you'll be behind since you have to accommodate people's schedules for interviews, which is not ideal for a course based on a monthly subscription service.

Course seemed poorly put together compared to the others in this certificate, it also seemed unnecessary to include this as an entire course.

I really liked learning how to use Figma and doing reserach to make better designs for users. I thought that some of the content was not in the correct order of progression for the class weeks and that some things in the videos did not match the tasks for the week endings. The peer-reviews have not been helpful for me but a hinderance. I never recieve feedback but give it to others when asked on the assignments. I would appreciate making useful feedback part of student grades for the assignments. I also have seen that alot of students enrolled do not submit the correct file and just give the points to pass the courses when reviewing assignments. Perhaps a bit more accountability for students enrolled to actually produce quality work and feedback would be helpful.

The Person teaching in this course is pretty boring compared to the other courses, his manner of speaking and expressions has a very sleepy vibe

I am sorry to say but I hated this course - after doing such a hands-on fun wireframing course this killed my motivation, I couldn't come back to it for 2 weeks. I am sure Jason is an amazing person in real life, but his 'reading' was putting me to sleep, as a person with English as a second language I found too many complicated words were used and just too much listening and reading - not much action. The information just kept repeating itself, this could have been a shorter course I think. I will agree with other comments - the peer-graded assignments in general on Coursera I find silly because some people just downgrade you on purpose? In this course, some assignments made no sense when it came to 'Instructions ' vs. 'Submission ' - that should really be corrected! The random question pop-ups in the middle of the videos are frustrating.

This course did a wonderful job of demonstrating how important user research can be to a UX designers product. I learned so much about the prototypes, lo fidelity designs, and usability studies. The instructor was easy to follow along with a did an excellent job stressing the importance of user feedback in order to gain insight and fine tune the middle stages of product design. Getting to use figma and other digital software for our projects gives me the confidence I need to easily build upon my portfolio project and see my initial sketches and brainstorm ideas become closer to an actual product that would benefit people's lives.

This course really broke down the process of building a research plan, conducting a usability study, analyzing the data collected through research to inform improvements needed to your design, and how to create a thorough presentation to share insights and improvements with others. The instructor for this course was great! I really enjoyed the tone and demonstrated understanding of the content presented by the instructor. Though the content of this course and work needing to be completed took some extra time to get through, I believe it was beneficial and helped produce quality work in the end. Great course!

I have learned to create a research plan that allows me to prepare an earlier usability study for the project that I have created while objectively collecting valuable feedback directly from the user and moreover to provide accurate insights to enhance my project. And finally, learned how to prepare overall insights based on the research and collect feedback from the participants, and present it to the team or related stakeholders. I am grateful that I took this course and as promised that I will continue the rest of the courses.
by Jeremy B•
Doing user research seemed kind of scary at first, but the course sets you up with templates and tips and stuff that are really helpful. So far, the courses in the program are good at filling in all the gaps I had trying to learn UX on my own. Like going from research back to designing. I had a general idea for how to do some design updates after researching, but I was happy to see that the course lays out exactly what to do and how to do it. I feel like I am turning into a real UX designer!

Great course. I have really learned a lot, and the assignments helped me to apply all concepts that I have learned here. I would like to sincerely thank my instructor for this great learning experience. I have one comment here. Sometimes, I am not able to meet the weekly deadlines, as, I take it a little slowly, to get a better grasp of the concepts and try to do well in my assignments. Once again, thank you so much, and I am looking forward to the other courses.
by Pooya D•
in this course I learned steps, research methods and how to make presentations for stakeholders. the way of lectures and lecturer is very good. they pay attention to every point even its very small or seems nonimportant from my perspective but when I study and try to do my assignments I recognized that why a small nonimportant point can have an effect on your project.
I learned lots of things from this course and sure I'll learn a lot from next courses.

I found this course to be instructional, fun and successful in teaching us how to write an initial Research Study plan, creating an affinity diagram, learning how to take notes and adding them to a spreadsheet for clarity and synthesizing, defining themes and insights and creating a Research presentation, while learning to present the said presentation and then updating it with our research findings. Looking forward to starting course 5!
by Shane T•
Whilst the start of the course took a bit of getting into - coming from such an interactive and creative previous course, I am so glad I stuck with it.
The material covered is incredibly valuable - and really highlights the importance of testing and getting feedback from users.
The assignments weren't easy - and really reflects the effort you put into the usability study. A poor study will make the follow-on assignments a LOT harder.
by Shanthi N•
This course was facilitated in an excellent way. I learnt all the important steps of planning and conducting a research study, conducting a usability study, using affinity diagram, deriving insights and most importantly how to present insights and recommendations effectively to a design team and how to present it flawlessly. There cannot be a better way to teach, help us practise these skills than this amazing Google course.

Wow, what a challenging and informative course. Research is key to creating a great application and design. I have learned so much and had difficult times, but I pushed on and it paid off. I hope to take all that I have learned into my future roles in the field. Thank you to all the instructors and staff who worked putting this together.

This course was the first moment where I started to feel a bit professional. Everything is coalesing and it's satisfying. Thanks to the wonderful instruction well paced course material I was able to complete this with ease. Super happy, now the next course is 6 WEEKS!?... opinion pending on the well paced bit.
Absolutely loved this course. It was a great experience. The speakers were good designers who shared their vision from beginning to end. I do it just for a few weeks, and I am happy to receive my certificate. I will recommend those who want to learn UI UX Design from scratch. Thank you, Googlers!
by Tahta A•
It does really help me to deliver a good presentation for the team and make the stakeholder support my research. It is somehow I find it difficult to conduct research online especially when there's a technical issue like a connection and device. Overall, I'd recommend this course to my friends.
by Ola B•
At the beginning of the course, i was really having a concern on how the instructor was teaching. but after first and second class, i was able to flow along with him. the course on its own was in-depth and challenging in terms of assignments. thanks google for such a beautiful course.

Hello and I think that this course is very important for the development of the final prototype, this research stage does not help to improve our final prototype, I found it very interesting more than all the research and data collection methods, I am excited to start the next course
by Andrew M•
Great course. This takes some logical steps that I see rarely used in the real world. I have spent over 30 years delivering solutions to clients and this piece was never discussed. I learned that insights from user testing can be greatly valuable in building solutions a user wants.

Es un muy buen curso, en un momento es complicado por la situacion de la pandemia encontrar participantes, pero a la larga se pueden llegar a buenos resultados, un muy buen curso, y muy claro. no es dificil de comprender pero en la ejecución hay que tener mucha mas paciencia.
by Polly P•
Jason is an excellent instructor with a relatable presentation style. I was happy that there were more practice quizzes and fewer discussions in Course 4. Overall, these courses have helped me build confidence that making a transition to UX design is the right choice.
