It is a great course for beginners and people transitioning to UX/UI design career from other fields. It gives you a basic knowledge and information what UX design is and how to apply it in real life.

This course introduced me to the world of UX Design. It has also encouraged me to go deeper in this field and explore more. Thank you, Google, Coursera, Commonwealth, and the Government of Bangladesh.

This was a very goof first course and it really got me excited for the next six of the program. My only comment is that for me, personally, having a whole session about building a portfolio in the very beginning was not very useful. I would rather save it and watch it later, when I start working on projects that I can present future potential employers. :)

A great introductory course! I would recommend it to everyone. Many concepts can be very useful in everyday life and provide some understanding and new perspective about everything around us.

Basic. Slow. Repetative. Political.
I feel like I haven't learnt anything 'new'. It's just obvious stuff repeated over and over again that you're already supposed to know if you use technology. You can really save yourselves time by learning how to use Figma and Adobe Xd through free tutorials all over the internet.
Also, why does everything need to be full of woke politics these days?

Too focused on networking and promoting Google's own patented methods.

This was what I was searching for! About a year ago I discovered UX Design and I fascinated by this career that was a combination of design and psychology. I did my research on the field but was still not sure if I wanted to change careers. With the affordable price and newly acquired free time I decided to enroll (I'm also a full time graphic design student).
There were many gaps in my UX career research like roles, what to put in my portfolio, and terminology. all the gaps were filled after taking this course, plus so much more. I do wish the discussion boards and community were more interactive with each other. It's nice to get a sneak peek at Google and their team members, which all seem so humble and intelligent. Who knows, maybe I could work for Google someday!

I feel like weeks 1-3 were super beneficial for people who are new to UX Design (like myself) and are considering UX Design as a career because it focused on what UX Design is, what jobs you might work on, and how UX Designers work so it helped me really start to put myself in this role and I could actually see myself doing this as a career in the near future. Week 4 is the reason I deducted a star. For newbies, like myself, I feel like the networking is not beneficial. We barely know what UX Design is. I feel like a more helpful approach would be gently introducing us to these social media sites and prompting us to gain inspiration from other designers from these sites and then in a later course going back to these sites and being like "okay, now that you know more about UX Design and at this point are set on finishing this certificate let's talk about networking and how to do that." I do think that starting to think about your personal brand and about me pages and portfolios was helpful as that is something we have to start thinking about from the beginning in order to craft it over these next courses, but sometimes it felt like we were expected to already have our website up and running, which didn't make sense to me as newbies have no designs to showcase yet and don't fully know how we work as a designer in order to fully understand our personal brand.

Most of the content is basics. But I think the Design Sprint part is great!

I would like a refund for my subscription to Google UX Design. I want to learn design, but the course is politically motivated. In order to proceed, I need to accept and incorporate equity. Equity!
“ Equity design is a creative process to dismantle systems of oppression and (re)design towards liberation and healing by centering the power of communities historically impacted by the oppressive systems being (re)designed.”
This is a far-left liberal political position, that require me to evaluate my history and current standing as racist. I am not racist. I am a white man, yes, but I am not nor do I intend to told that I must believe that we live in a "system of oppression" that needs to be "dismantle(d)".
I signed up for design, not basic far left-leaning ideocratic nonsense that serves to glorify lack of responsibility and victimhood.
If you cannot refund me for the Google UX program, then I would like to change my course and select a STEM subject. Hopefully void of political propaganda.
And, finally, I'm disappointed because I've been really looking for to this.

This course inspired me, before taking this course I have been used some UX Design communities, I have worked in Adobe XD Design. This course explains the right way and UX process. I like this mentor.

This course can be distilled into a few meaningful videos with concrete information instead of being bloated with a lot of useless videos about abstract nothingness, accompanied by disingenuous encouragement. He says emotionless, "Way to go." His eyes are dead as he reads the script and hands are kept flat at the table like he's a hostage. There's no conviction and I'm not convinced he believes what he's saying. I feel like I'm being scammed.

Very disappointed so far. First off, Coursera's layout is not easy to navigate which is ironic. This first course was vocabulary stretched over four weeks. They spent most of the time going on about diversity and seemed to forget people are trying to learn UX design. Week four was just promoting website builders. I feel cheated out of my money. I do not recommend this course to anyone trying to learn UX design.

Poorly designed and frustrating for the user. It's cart-before-the-horse in practice. Provide me with skills to create examples for my portfolio. Don't ask me to create a website and sit on a domain when I have nothing to show yet. It killed the momentum of the course for me. I was able to finish it, despite the utter frustration, but felt like I had gained nothing from it.

Incredible course: provides you with basics and covers a lot of different interesting topics that you would never even think of when it comes to UX design.
Enjoyed the professionalism of the videos, animations and overall experience as I was completing the course, clear speech of the teacher and other colleagues is worth mentioning as well. I'd definitely recommended this course to anyone interested in the UX design but doesn't know where to start from.

It has been fantastic so far. The gradual guided transition of a total newbee to the world of UX designing is commendable. The section on networking has been very useful in setting a path to walk on.

Great first Month. But It suggest talking about the website and portfolio part a bit later as all websites do cost money and most attendies first need inspiration before creating there first website

Overall very helpful and informative. Occasionally I was unclear if the assignment was telling me to do my own thing or just edit someone else's .

The guy with the bald head is a liar about getting a job in UX design . This course is a scam. Guy with the bald head said it was easy to get into UX design and a lot of job openings were available. Here I am an unemployed UX designer with a great portfolio. There is also a lot of discrimination in UX design industry. All the people interviewing me were white. Its an overprivileged position for white tech woke liberals. Also a lot of discrimination towards people on the autism spectrum if you have communication problems like me.

Well, it generally was a total waste of time - from the first module the course offers to "create a web page (to land your designer's portfolio) that would most correspond with your UX Design views". I mean come on, are you serious? I have no ux design views, I have enrolled in this course to get some and this is what you offer as the first practical task? Also you'll hear a lot of "this is an important part of UX design process, but we'll discuss it later". Disappointed and decided to quit.

I have lerant about the foundational concepts in UX design, such as user-centered design, the design process, accessibility, equity-focused design and the factors that contribute to great user experience design. I have had the opportunity to gain knowlege about the common job responsibilities of entry-level UX designers and teams that they work with. Also I've learnt how I can create an online portfolio where I can showcase my works as a UX designer and the reasons why design sprints are an important and useful part of a UX designer’s work.

For someone who has a graphic design background but no UX experience, this course was amazing! I actually enjoyed learning and I love the fact that I could study at my own pace!
However, Week 4 lesson was something that I didn’t enjoy. I didn’t like the fact that I was assigned to find a mentor and had to create a website. I do think that mentioning the topic of online portfolio, mentor, website, and networking is important to know—just don’t turn it into an assignment.
