Testing! 1-2, 1-2! You’re interested in user experience and you have a scientific way of thinking? UX needs you! User testing is an empirical practice. This expertise is the most widespread and sought-after of the UX fields. User testing accompanies interface development from early paper mock-up testing to final prototypes and existing user interfaces. As interface fidelity gets more refined, so do the testing methods, from interview-type tests to eye-tracking and other real-time assessment methods with finished and existing interfaces. In this MOOC you will learn how to run efficient and business-oriented UX evaluations in any context. You will be taught by experts from the Tech3lab, North America’s most important UX lab, how to ensure scientific rigour to get valid results throughout this process. No previous knowledge needed. Join us in the scientific journey to master current user testing tools and methods, 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).
