Human-Centered Design

Interaction Design,

In this course, you will learn how to design technologies that bring people joy, rather than frustration. You'll learn several techniques for rapidly prototyping (such as Wizard of Oz Prototyping) and evaluating multiple interface alternatives -- and why rapid prototyping and comparative evaluation are essential to excellent interaction design. You'll learn how to conduct fieldwork with people to help you get design ideas. How to make paper prototypes and low-fidelity mock-ups that are interactive -- and how to use these designs to get feedback from other stakeholders like your teammates, clients, and users. Armed with these design-thinking strategies, you’ll be able to do more creative human-centered design in any domain. This is the first course offered in the interaction design specialization series.

A detailed and interesting introduction to Interaction Design with achievable assignments to get you into the mindframe of HCI.

Excellent exercise in introduction to Interaction Design.

Is a amazing course to start in this world of computer interaction design.

In a short time I learned a whole lot about Interaction Design.

The Course was well structured and it gave a good introduction to Interaction Design.

It also sets the tone for the rest of the courses in the Interaction Design Specialisation.

This introduction accomplishes a complete initial breakdown of the fundamentals of interaction design, I enjoyed and learned a lot on each lesson.

Good overall introduction to many areas of Interaction Design that are part of the specialization.

A very good introduction to the main themes any interaction designer has to know.

Excellent for learning basics of interaction design , such as how to conduct need finding and rapid prototyping.

This course is helpful in learning and practicing interaction design.

A well-structured course that can definitely help students, people who are seeking a career in UX/ interaction design.

It is a really good course for me to learn about human computer interaction design!

However, for complete beginners, a more thorough definition of UX should have been given as well as interaction design and the Human-centred design process.

I’d like to extend my sincerest thanks to Scott Klemmer and the team at Stanford and Coursera who made this course happen.

Love it the course is really good .it introduces some new ideas that students can incorporate into their daily work Scott Klemmer is a fantastic instructor, lucky to have him and also of course Don Norman at UCSD.

I found the assignments really challenging, but totally useful to ensure learning is consolidated.BIG THANK YOU to UC San Diego & to Scott Klemmer.

I do wish there was a way to ask Scott Klemmer questions, and that Coursera would have an algorithm to bubble up the 10 or 20 questions asked questions he could respond to and post his answers on this certificate program.

Professor Scott Klemmer has excellent presentations, descriptions, and examples.

learn a lot

Dedicate a lot of time for this class, and you will learn a lot from it!

Last, I learn a lot from grading other peoples work and it is exciting that people from all over the world are signing up for this.

Got to learn a lot.

It's not easy, but you can learn a lot.

It is a great course and I learn a lot but it is sometimes difficult to pay attention because the videos aren't very entertaining I think the course is a bit awkward for Introvert people, because it involves talking with other people and also interviewing them for opinions.
