Foundations of User Experience (UX) Design is the first of a series of seven courses that will equip you with the skills needed to apply to entry-level jobs in user experience design. UX designers focus on the interactions that people have with products like websites, mobile apps, and physical objects. UX designers make those everyday interactions usable, enjoyable, and accessible. The role of an entry-level UX designer might include empathizing with users, defining their pain points, coming up with ideas for design solutions, creating wireframes, prototypes, and mockups, and testing designs to get feedback.

TOP REVIEWS FROM FOUNDATIONS OF USER EXPERIENCE (UX) DESIGN
It was so cool to learn new skills online and it was so understandable and thankfull to Google team, Courseera and the technology that helped people like me to get new skills flew in the blood stream.
I enjoyed the course content.
I'm disappointed that there isn't an easy way to navigate back to my feedback in the discussion forums to engage with other students about the feedback I've provided.
the course is quite comprehensive, but the first two courses mainly focus on what design is, not on how to design. starting with a project would be more affective and the course would be less boring.
I just want to say a big thank you to Google for this opportunity. It is really worth it and i recommend every single person out there to step on this evolution of change created by Google. Thank you.
