Description

We all want to create “intuitive” and “delightful” experiences. These are easy words to say, but actually shipping a product that is intuitive and delightful is very difficult to accomplish.

I will teach you what we mean by intuitive, delightful experiences, and the importance of doing UX Research.

In this course you will learn when to do UX Research and how UX Research fits into the product development timeline. We’ll also cover UX Research techniques, and when is the best time to do each technique.

Along the way, together we will conduct research on a hypothetical app using easy, common-sense techniques that anyone can do.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Krispian Emert, and welcome to my course, Conducting UX Research. I'm a senior UX researcher, and I've conducted UX research for companies large and small from Chinese startups up to Microsoft and Facebook. When we're designing products, we all want to create intuitive and delightful experiences. These are easy words to say, but shipping a product that's actually intuitive and delightful is very difficult to accomplish. In this course, you'll learn when to do UX research and how UX research fits into the product development timeline. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include UX research techniques, the right time to do each technique, typical research deliverables. Along the way, I'll show you how to deal with limited budget and time, and together we'll conduct research on a hypothetical app using easy, commonsense techniques that anyone could do. By the end of this course, you'll understand why conducting UX research early and often can help you ship intuitive, delightful products. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic principles of UX or have taken my UX Fundamentals course. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into UX with courses on information architecture, becoming a more valuable UX professional. I hope you'll join me on this journey to understand the importance of conducting UX research with the Conducting UX Research course, at Pluralsight.
