TOP REVIEWS FROM INFORMATION DESIGN
Great course. Easy to understand and build on concepts, but the Week 2 and 3 assignments were very similar. Might want to do something different there.
I liked the way the functions & tasks of information design were taught with a hands on approach. I recommend this for anybody keen to understand what information design is and how to make it work.
very practical course with applicable skills. well worth the effort to complete.
The course is great. I wish it could have a little bit more information about prototyping in general.
