I am very happy about taking the UX beginners course. I must mention Adrian who’s been a great support right from the beginning and throughout. The course instructors Stratis and Giulia are super knowledgeable and they make you feel very welcome. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them. Everyone at UX academy wants you to succeed. I would recommend anyone that wants to learn about UX contact any staff member. Ask questions and even attend the free webinars they have. It has been a welcomed distraction during the lockdown. I hope we can all meet up in person one day.
I’m very happy taking the Beginner Course with UX Academy and I genuinely feel that I have a great and solid understanding of basic UX skills I can now build upon. The teachers were amazing, and they also gave us a great insight into the industry and the possible career options in UX.
I found the course really engaging and insightful. The tutors have a wealth of knowledge to share, and the opportunity to work through a live brief is invaluable. I’d highly recommend this course to anyone interested in a career in UX.
I am very satisfied! The quality of teaching is at the best standards, the teachers are very committed and it’s fun!
Having done both the Beginner and Intermediate UX design courses, they gave me confidence and sparked my passion for UX. I have now taken this knowledge and put it into place at my work and personal life in the form of building a website for my family business. All of the teachers were very knowledgeable and open to questions. They also had immense patience and great real-life examples. I am so happy to have been part of the course and to have met many wonderful people. I’d definitely recommend it!
As a startup founder and product manager, the UX Academy helped me to understand 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 a trainer presenting their topics of expertise followed by a series of team exercises to expand on what was learned.
I’ve recently completed the brilliant UX Academy course run by Mobile UX London. With many UX courses popping up all the time, here are a few of my thoughts on this particular course. Firstly, it was 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. It also allowed me to brush up on areas in which I haven’t 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 the User Experience and having the chance to put each of them to the test in teams. Working in a start-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 was a really good introduction and overview to UX. It presented all elements of the process from inception to completion.The course also presented the 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.
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 make more informed hiring decisions and communicate more effectively with UX professionals to make sure the products we put out have optimal UX designs.
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?
