Über den Kurs

Designing effective interactive systems requires understanding the needs and capabilities of the people who will be using them. In this UX course we will focus on how to interact with users (or potential users) to understand what they need, what they currently do, what they love and hate, and examine human capabilities and behavior as they relate to UX design. Learners will be introduced to numerous techniques to gather data from and about users. This course is part of the User Experience (UX) Research and Design specialization offered on Coursera. What you'll learn: Find out what user needs assessments are, what qualitative research is, and how the two are related. Learn an end-to-end methodology for qualitative research that is suited for understanding user needs. The methodology includes knowledge of semi-structured interviews, in-situ observation, and affinity walls. Be exposed to good practices for conducting semi-structured interviews, in-situ observation, and affinity walls. Gain some experience with semi-structured interviews, in-situ observations, and affinity walls....

I really enjoyed this class and felt it was a great start to learning how to conduct user research. The professor, Kentaro Toyama, is also a fantastic teacher even with teaching via recorded video.

This is the least polished of all the courses in this specialization. The name of the course should be restructured to fit what it's about, interviewing and the process of interviewing. I find interviewing pretty self-explanatory, but there is information that is useful in the course video and documentation. What bothered me most was the ambiguity when it came to peer assignments, the number of peer assignments and quizzes that involve answers like "all of the above" or "II and III". Peer assignments are an a pain to deal with, considering you have to ask other users for reviews to process, and it's mandatory to be graded before proceeding. If the structure of this course was reworked, it could be more efficient at conveying the importance, features and best practice of interviewing.

A very basic light touch course, it outlines the key principles for understanding user needs but not in a way that would be useful in the real world. The assignment is a good idea and helps students learn by doing however the Peer Review approach is unfit for purpose given the scale of the assignment. I would not recommend this course to others primarily as the content is not of a high enough standard.
