Online Course Description
User experience is a high-demand skillset. In days gone by, products were a combination of what the designer thought would be cool and what the client thought would be cool. The user of the product was at best an afterthought in the process, and was often only considered at a very surface level. Of course, in reality it's users that make or break products. A fantastic idea can be rendered so badly that no-one wants to use it. Thus, user experience is now high on the corporate agenda and UX designers are sought after at all levels in the employment market.
In this course you'll be learning all you need to get started in UX design. I'll walk you through the basics of every major technique and tool you can apply to UX. You'll probably want to do a little more reading around the subjects that really interest you, to further develop your skills, but you'll be ready to get started on a UX career by the end of the course.
During the course you'll find out:
What UX is all about
What UX designers do
How to plan for UX
Research methods for UX projects
Tools and techniques for UX design
The components of UX design
How to focus on clients through UX, and...
How to develop your UX career.

I am a user experience designer with a strong interest in business & lean thinking.
My process: Understand the problem → Research existing solutions → Brainstorm ideas → Draw → Prototype → User Test → Improve (repeat)
I started my career pretty small with front end help to users, by researching about their problems and flagging the user concerns to the engineering and product team at Google India. If you think Google News is awesome, may be there was a 2 cent credit I can take ;)
How I got into User Experience? During the above projects, I discovered that my interests lay at a deeper level of thought. My main interests include creating products, devising experiences. I seek to discover what the user really needs, to view the world from their perspective and experience their lives. A motivating team player who wants to co-create products & services that make lives of people more convenient and fun. I have a hands-on mentality, don’t make big plans upfront, but think, create and test, to validate the assumption. With contagious enthusiasm, I motivate people to think out of the box, rethink logic and create awesome stuff that works. I am specialized in designing user experiences and interfaces.
From research to personas(jobs-to-be-done), from user journeys to requirements, from flowcharts to wireframes and from functional design to visual design of website and applications.
I enjoy every bit of work I do.
