I recently completed 10 week, online live User Experience Design course through Brainstation. Each week of the course included a lecture style introduction to a UX design topic, hands on activities, discussion, and take away work. All of the material related directly to our final project, designing an app or website to solve a problem of our choosing. The pace of the course allowed us to cover a lot of material in just a few hours a week. The instructors were incredibly helpful at explaining topics, providing real work examples, and giving feedback on our projects. It was clear that their goal was to help us to create a solid portfolio piece that we were proud of and reflected everything we learned in class. I would recommend this course for anyone who does not have any UX experience and is looking to explore the field.

I took the UX Design Certificate Course in the spring of 2020 and had an absolutely amazing experience. I had just started out my career as a product designer and I would have been completely lost without this course!

I have a background in Graphic Design so the UI came fairly easy to me, but UX is a completely different animal. I never knew there could be so many different facets of design and it was very exciting to see all the different directions I could go as a designer.

Our instructor, Jenna Brucoli, was fantastic. She is incredibly knowledgeable and always had perfect real-life examples to give us to help us better understand the material.

We started our final projects the 2nd or 3rd week of class so that we were continuously practicing what we had learned. This was incredibly helpful and important in my learning.

I made fantastic connections and friends through the course. I highly recommend this course!
