What our students say about us
It’s a great course for anyone who would like to get into this emerging technology – Voice Design. The tutors Stratis and Goncalo, are having real time experience in Voice Design working for reputed companies. They are friendly and massively helpful guiding us through the challenges and suggesting us to see the objective of the project in the right direction. The content that’s been prepared and presented in the course is a really good start to get our heads around the Voice design. I wouldn’t say this is an extensive course for the Voice Design but it’s a good start into that technology.
With 3 years of UX Design experience, the course was a great way of consolidating all my knowledge and putting in practice all the theory. The main difference with an University course is the approach, much more industry-oriented. In fact, we worked on a project from the very start to the end, caring deeply about every single part, in order to build a good study showcase. This will allow me to add a good piece in my portfolio.
The VUI course was exceptional. In two days it covered off everything we’d hoped to learn from high level theory through to a detailed understanding of human linguistics and building our own voice skills. The instructors were obviously very knowledgeable of the voice space and really hands on. Would highly recommend the course.
I’m so glad I did this Designing for Voice Course, all the tutors were massively helpful and were really great teachers. I’ve gained a new skill set which I’ve already found ways to apply to my current job, and one I hope I will continue to explore in the future.
I strongly suggest this Intermediate UX Course to anyone who wants to learn the Google Design Sprint. It is really useful in terms of developing personal and soft skills. Furthermore, it can be an alternative for someone who doesn’t have time to do a long course as lectures start conveniently after 6pm. Lastly, when compared to other UX courses in London, the price is quite competitive.
I would definitely recommend this Intermediate UX Course to anyone considering pushing their knowledge and practical skills a bit further in this field. The workload is well designed for anyone in a full-time job. The course followed a good process for revolutionary design. I will definitely be using this a lot in the future.
As a startup founder and product manager, the UX Academy helped me to understand better how designers think. The training improved the way I work with designers.
The MUXL 8 weeks training course is a great introduction for a beginner looking to work in the field or anyone curious about the UX industry. The scope of topics covered by four industry experts ranged from ideation, flow creation, wireframing basics, usability testing methods and stakeholder management. Each three hour workshop, held once a week involved the trainer presenting their topics of expertise followed by a series of team exercises to expand on what was learnt.
I’ve recently completed the brilliant UX Academy course run by Mobile UX London. With many UX courses popping up all the time, here’s a few of my thoughts on this on. Firstly it was a great user experience. Having already been working as a Junior UX Designer for a few months the course was a great way of consolidating all my knowledge so far & brushing up on the areas which I haven’t yet worked on as much.
One of the most valuable aspects of the course was gaining a better understanding of the break down of the different stages of a User Experience and having the chance to put each of them to practice in teams. Working in a star-up, we go through most of the stages informally but it has been very helpful knowing how to run through things in a more structured manner.
The course has given me food for thought. I’m still as in love with UX as before, so that’s good. It’s given me ideas for where to find decent resources and how to use them. Now that I have completed the course I will be more confident to challenge people’s assumptions when we are building new products, and I feel more confident that this is the right path for me. ‘It is better to learn something than to be right’ – I’ll be carrying this phrase with me from now on!
As a project manager from a development background, now that I have a better understanding of the basics of UX, I can better hire and communicate with UX professionals to make sure the products we put out have good UX.
I think my favourite moment on the course was the introduction to creativity exercises. As an example, we took a random object and used its properties to generate a much broader range of design references for our service. Our object was a silver toy aeroplane that was also a pen and, as a result, we ended up focusing more clearly on whether our service needed to be tangible and what ethos of interaction it would bring for the user. We asked different types of questions: Would it be sleek or modular? What would the balance of play and function be?
The course was a really good introduction and overview to UX. It presented all elements of the process from inception to completion, with an opportunity to work through an idea while learning important concepts.
The interaction was really good – I also really appreciated the resources as it was good to go over them after the course. Sometimes it’s hard to take all of the information in, having the resources allowed me to do so in my spare time.
