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.
It's a wonderful course that I've ever taken. I'm being proud of me that I've elected this particular course.
The way of taking their challenges (or tests) on a weekly basis had impressed me a lot.
Very fun and informative course, finished all 4 weeks in 4 days very easily. Kept it well engaging and had the perfect amount of visuals, reading, and videos along with mini quizzes and assignments.
It is pretty good. You learn new things even as someone who has some idea of what UX is. Would recommend to those who want to start learning because it is affordable and provides valuable information.
