This course builds on the teachings in Human-Centered Design for Work at a Distance: Toolbox Essentials. We recommend you complete it before enrolling in this course. One of the benefits of acquiring human-centered design skills is that they are extremely versatile. Once mastered, they can be applied at an individual, team or organizational level, to support product design, team communications, problem solving, customer experience and more. In Human-Centered Design for Work at a Distance: Prototype Solutions , you will deepen your knowledge of human-centered design, combine the tools learned in Human-Centered Design for Work at a Distance: Toolbox Essentials, and learn a problem-solving methodology to propose solutions for real-world people who need to transform how they work at a distance. Continue to learn from guest speakers from a range of industries, work with, and receive feedback on a real case study, and build a case study based on a real person in your community that you could support. Initiate and implement your own design process to help improve or re-invent that individual or organization’s work/business.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
