This this lecture you will be introduced to the instructors and major sections of the course.
This lecture includes an overview of the major sections of the course, and outlines what you will learn. That includes:
This lecture describes the major components of User Experience Design, and provides a foundational understanding for approaching each section.
This lecture describes the origins of UX Design, and how the principals of UX can be applied to physical machines like the ox cart, horse saddle, and machines during the Industrial Revolution.
This lecture describes how UX Design has evolved over time. Specifically, how mechanical and ergonomics design evolved into software and user interfaces.
Understanding UX Design and software is difficult. This lecture uses the analogy of a physical building to explain software and UX Design.
User Experience Design contains two major components: we'll call them 1) Aiming and 2) Firing. Aiming refers to pre-and-post design activities like user research and information architecture. While Firing refers to the process of designing things like screens and interfaces.
This lecture introduces the concept and importance of User Research. And how it can be used to dramatically increase the quality and speed of new designs.
This lecture describes the 5 major components of User Research:
This lecture describes the 2 types of User Research: Art and Science. Art refers to early-stage and low-volume user research activities like interviews and short run surveys. Science refers to large-scale and late-stage activities like usage analytics and AB testing.
This lecture identifies a handful of user research software tools and places them along a spectrum according to their User Research Method Type (Art vs Science). Common tools include Google Analytics, Zurb Verify App, Survey Monkey, CrazyEgg, PickFu, Google Consumer Surveys, Databases and Amazon Redshift, UserTesting . com, Optimizely, and more.
This lecture details an entire user research project from start to finish.

This lecture describes the common skills that information architects use.
This lecture is an expansion of the previous lecture, and describes the skills that information architects use.
This lecture identifies real-world examples of information architecture so that you will be able to identify them on your own in the wild.
This section describes the primary elements of design, which are used to construct practically any visual creation. They include Line, Shape, Direction, Texture, Size, and Color.
This section describes the Principals of Design, which are used in combination with the Elements of Design to generate design compositions. They include Balance, Proximity, Alignment, Repetition, Contrast, and Space.

This section describes buttons (or CTAs), and how their use can influence user behavior.
This section describes how multiple buttons or CTAs can be grouped together in unique ways.
This lecture describes the basics and importance of user psychology, and how understanding it can help you become a better designer and positively influence user behavior.
This lecture explores the concept of how products can become "intuitive," and also what makes this possible. It also transitions into emotion and motivation.
This lecture defines the relationship between intuitive products, emotion, and motivation. It also explores one of 4 primary psychological models called the BJ Fogg Behavior Model, which contains three primary components: Motivation, Ability, and Trigger.
This lecture describes the 2nd of the 4 primary psychology models, one created by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi and is called "Psychological Flow State."
This lecture describes the 3rd of the 4 primary psychology models, one created by Nir Eyal and is called The Hook Model.
This lecture describes the 4th of the primary psychology models, a book written by Daniel Pink and is called "Drive."
I am an energetic, detail-oriented entrepreneur, designer, and technical marketer, with a focus on web and creative industries. I have a wide depth of ability, but my passions revolve around the intersection of marketing, technology, and design. Solving problems using them is my superpower.
Hello, I'm Pablo Stanley. I'm a San Francisco based product designer. I love solving design puzzles, making silly illustrations, composing geeky music, creating colorful animated gifs, munching veggie burgers, and writing punny comics.
Mentoring is one of my new found passions. I want to learn and teach as much as I can and Udemy is the best platform for it.
I also write a comic series called “The Design Team”.
