Why Take This Course

UX (User Experience) is a big deal. Though the term is often confused with User Interface, UI is only only a tiny subset of UX (we’ll talk about the difference in Lesson 1).

You should take this course because well-designed apps are just as important as well-built apps.

The goal of this course is to help you understand the most important and immediately useful techniques and approaches used by great mobile UX designers. This course won’t turn you into a designer, but it will help you incorporate design elements into the products you build.
