  • ★☆☆☆☆

    Really.. ???
  • ★★☆☆☆

    The course touches on some important concepts in UX design, but without any examples and real world use cases it is hard to visualize what is actually being discussed.
  • ★★★☆☆

    comprehensive. however, would include a brief description at the beginning of course explaining there are no visuals in the actual course. that said, the links + pdfs provided are very helpful.
  • ★★★★☆

    This course is a good primer for people getting into UX. Robert talks briefly about each process starting from user research till usability testing and follows up with a carefully selected curated list of links on the specific process discussed for Read more
    further reading. Some links might have to be updated. So, it is advisable to check them before making a note. The downloadable templates serve as a good starting point.
  • ★★★☆☆

    Decent mix of curated & first hand knowledge; presentation is a little dry but don't let lack of polish or flare deceive you. Good value here.
  • ★☆☆☆☆

    Was thinking there's more to this course than a few dry videos and links to resources I know already.
  • ★☆☆☆☆

    This course is not interesting at all. It only consist of (poor quality) videos of someone speaking, with no examples, and a list of links. Useless.
  • ★☆☆☆☆

    May as well have been reading an article linking to a bunch of different sources. Nothing really made me want to stick around.
