Practical UX design courses

Hello, everybody!

Could you please advice some good online UX design course that focuses on practice? My budget is not very high. Approximately from 200$ to 1000$ max.

Regards,

Nick

    Hi Nick,

    The UX related courses from David Travis on Udemy are highly regarded and are often discounted which would allow you to stretch your training budget further (always handy 🙂 )

    Hope this helps.

    ... Fresh Tilled Soil's AUX curriculum might also be a useful resource;

    Hi Nick, 

    I use this course (by InVision actually!) to train people new to my team: https://www.invisionapp.com/ecourses/principles-of-ux-design

    It's a wonderful foundation and it's free 🤑

    Cheers,

    Caitlin

    Hi Lala, thank you so much, i didn't hear about the Springboard, but i think their advantage is that they provide mentor feedback 🙂 Of course Lynda and Skillshare are much cheaper 🙂


    Hi Caitlin, thank you for the course 🙂 I think i've done it before, very good indeed!
    If you have more options don't hesitate to post 🙂


    regards,
    Nick

    I've been a member of the Interaction Design Foundation for a couple of years and finding it a really asset. They collaborate with universities like Cambridge and Stanford and have authors like Don Norman.

    You can learn at your own pace, the courses are marked by lecturers and you are given feedback if required.

    You gain an industry recognised certificate when you complete a course and you can take as many courses as you like for one fee.

    I has helped me to make the move to my current position.

    The link below will give you three months free membership.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

    Hi Chris!

    Thank you for the provided link! I'm already a member of this amazing community. By the way, what courses on the IDF did you take to switch your carreer? I'v noticed that IDF has strong theoretical base but unfortunately they don't have good practical activities.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hi Nick, the one that stands out for me was Mobile User Experience Design, I found that really interesting and it gave me the confidence to make a leap to my current position. I know what you mean about the practical site of the courses, there are a couple of sections in this course where you have to produce sketches or rough visuals to be marked, but it is mainly theory.

    The agency I work for specialise in eCommerce, since I've joined them I found a course called Psychology of E-Commerce: How to Sell Online really useful and very insightful.

    I'm currently working my way through the courses on the IDF and find some cross over on courses, which I don't mind as it helps to sink in. I do find that a lot I'm learning, I'm putting into practice on a daily basis.

    I attended UX Cambridge last year, which had a good mix of workshops and case studies, I'm hoping to attend again this year.

    Thanks.

    Chris.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the comprehensive answer. You have very interesting experience. I think it is a very big plus when you have an opportunity to turn the IDF knowledge into action. It seems that the UX Cambridge is also useful activity. Unfortunately we don't have such greate events.
