What is UX design?

This learning path is curated from UX design courses, videos and resources from across the internet, organized into a logical sequence that a beginner can follow.

Take a moment to think about you favorite website or mobile app or electronic device. What makes you love it? Is it really intuitive to use? Did it feel familiar the first time you used it? Maybe it even has an uncanny way of knowing what you’ll want to do next? Odds are, a user experience (UX) designer spent hours researching and designing it so you could have a seamless experience.

UX design is a combination of tools, methods, and frameworks with which you can solve design problems in a methodical way while focusing on the users of a product or service.

Why learn user (UX) design?

UX design is hot. Demand is high, as are average salaries, as companies continue to focus on users and creating better experiences for them. You will learn to understand how customers think about a product or service. If you can get inside the minds of the people you design for, your designs will be that much more powerful.

What will you learn?

By the end of this free online UX course you will be fluent in the language and process of UX design. You will learn about what it encompasses, and how it relates to other disciplines. We'll cover:
