User experience design for non-designers

Why are some products, websites, or apps easy to use, while others are confusing and frustrating? The difference is design and user experience. If you are not (yet) a designer, work with designers, or just want an introduction to design and user experience, this course is for you. In just ten days, you will learn about design, design thinking, and the building blocks of user experience. You will also learn about the different roles and steps involved in designing a product, website, or app that is easy and intuitive to use. At the end of this course, you will not only be familiar with the steps in design and able to relate to design teams, but you will also start noticing and appreciating (even wanting to fix) the elements of design around you in your everyday life!
