Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Justin Buehler. Welcome to my course, UX Research Analysis. I'm an experienced design consultant and the founder of Buehler Strategies. I help clients develop content strategies and digital designs that deliver measurable results. UX design skills are in high demand because there just aren't enough UX designers to fill all the open positions. In this course, we're going to explore how to measure user experience, how to conduct competitor research for a SWOT analysis, how to design a customer journey map, and how to evaluate a mobile app prototype. Some of the major topics that will cover include user experience analytics, user research methods, user models and maps, and user evaluation methods. By the end of this course, you'll know how to select and deploy the best UX qualitative and quantitative research methods based on project requirements and business goals and objectives. And before beginning this course, you should be familiar with product development, user experience design, and data analysis tools and work flows. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learning UX research analysis in the UX Research Analysis course at Pluralsight.
