Brainstorm, brainstorm! UX Design is not just about having ideas! The user-centred approach fuels innovation in ways that support incremental, radical and disruptive innovations towards great user experience like no other. User experience design helps the team hone down on a new concept, on general interactions, on desired experiences, before jumping into user interface design (the next MOOC!). Learn divergent ideation methods to bring creativity to problem-solving, whether you are called upon for a simple redesign or a major change in a digital offering. Use convergent ideation methods to anchor a new concept within your business context, seeking win-win innovation for all parties involved, within the project team, across the organisation including external end-users. Thinking through innovation helps position even the smallest change into a long-term perspective. No wonder Design Thinking is a highly valued method. No previous knowledge needed. Join us in the journey to master the divergent and convergent ideation methods. Unlock their potential, through the UX Design and Evaluation MicroMasters, or as an individual course.
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).
