For anyone interested in learning UX I highly recommend taking Scott Klemmer's Human-Computer Interaction course from Stanford Online. It is one of the massive open (free) online courses available through Coursera. During April & May this year I participated in the third run of this class. I learned an incredible amount through the online videos, quizzes, assignments, peer-review and student interactions. If possible, set aside the 10-12 hours a week to complete the full studio track.
In the next posts I'll be putting into practice some of the things I learned and share some helpful resources. Enjoy!
