As a startup founder and product manager, the UX Academy helped me to understand better how designers think. The training improved the way I work with designers.

The variety of speakers was of great value. I particularly appreciated the first part of the training about ideation. Starting with collecting as many ideas as possible and asking open questions, followed by an idea selection process before focusing the team on execution. We applied this method ourselves in our small group during the training. I believe this approach is of great value everyday for team and startup management.

The MUXL 8 weeks training course is a great introduction for a beginner looking to work in the field or anyone curious about the UX industry.

The scope of topics covered by four industry experts ranged from ideation, flow creation, wireframing basics, usability testing methods and stakeholder management. Each three hour workshop, held once a week involved the trainer presenting their topics of expertise followed by a series of team exercises to expand on what was learnt. Classes were kept to a limited number of students which meant that each session was interactive and questions can be discussed spontaneously. It was also great that the workshops were held in the evenings which meant minimal disruptions to the day job.

Overall, the MUXL training has widened my knowledge to the depths of UX as I learnt how the field is a unique blend of technical expertise, process development and people psychology. Having completed this course, I now have a clearer understanding of what it takes to create a successful, user-centred product / service and look forward to applying the principles learnt in my next startup project.

I’ve recently completed the brilliant UX Academy course run by Mobile UX London. With many UX courses popping up all the time, here’s a few of my thoughts on this one… Firstly it was a great user experience. Having already been working as a Junior UX Designer for a few months the course was a great way of consolidating all my knowledge so far & brushing up on the areas which I haven’t yet worked on as much.

The course is taught by four passionate tutors meaning we benefitted from their wide variety of expertise & experiences. And they’re working on some really exciting UX projects including JustGiving, Gov.uk & The Guardian which meant we could hear about their personal experiences.

The best part of the course for me, was working in small groups to put everything we learnt into practice. This not only helped consolidate our learning but also improved my confidence & gave me a project to talk about with potential employers & bored friends and family. Plus it gave us the opportunity to try and find a UX solution to problems that exist in our everyday lives. Watch out for our groups solution to the cramped, sweaty commute on the tube, coming soon!

It was a great opportunity to meet other course mates, made up of Junior UX’rs & UX enthusiasts. And it was interesting to hear their experiences & to form a sort of support group, asking advice and helping to solve each others issues. Overall it’s a really affordable way to learn more about the UX Design process and to meet other like-minded people just starting on their UX journeys.

One of the most valuable aspects of the course was gaining a better understanding of the break down of the different stages of a User Experience and having the chance to put each of them to practice in teams. Working in a star-up, we go through most of the stages informally but it has been very helpful knowing how to run through things in a more structured manner.

Since completing the course I have wireframed 2 new websites that my organisation is about to launch and was able to do this a lot faster than before thanks to working on our own project on Proto.io with my team.

The course has given me food for thought. I’m still as in love with UX as before, so that’s good. It’s given me ideas for where to find decent resources and how to use them. Now that I have completed the course I will be more confident to challenge people’s assumptions when we are building new products, and I feel more confident that this is the right path for me. ‘It is better to learn something than to be right’ – I’ll be carrying this phrase with me from now on!

As a project manager from a development background, now that I have a better understanding of the basics of UX, I can better hire and communicate with UX professionals to make sure the products we put out have good UX.

I think my favourite moment on the course was the introduction to creativity exercises. As an example, we took a random object and used its properties to generate a much broader range of design references for our service. Our object was a silver toy aeroplane that was also a pen and, as a result, we ended up focusing more clearly on whether our service needed to be tangible and what ethos of interaction it would bring for the user. We asked different types of questions: Would it be sleek or modular? What would the balance of play and function be?

As a researcher for a charity improving democratic engagement with economics, apart from the practical knowledge and practice I will take away around accessibility, storyboarding and wireframing for new interactions with our end-users, I also appreciated the ethos that ‘design is too important to be left to designers’. As a charity focused on creating impact, we’ll be using these techniques to involve our users at every stage of our project and product development.
