Is This Course For Me?

If you're interested in learning more about digital design, learning the principles, tools and processes of User Experience Design is a great place to start. The part-time course gives students an opportunity to ideate and design digital experiences that users will love, through sketching, experience mapping, creating user personas, and using software to wireframe and prototype.

The course begins with selecting a project idea, and ends with a presentation, exposing students to a mix of practical and theoretical approaches along the way that they can apply each week to their final designs.

“I highly recommend BrainStation classes to anyone who plans to move up to the next level in their career, start a new career, start a business, or simply just wants to learn something new.”

Goal Setting

Before diving into curriculum, UX Design students are given the opportunity to set their course goals, which our Educators are able to view and refer to in order to ensure students are on track and receive support to help them accomplish their goals.

Access to Learning Content

UX Design students can access course slides and resources on their own time through the BrainStation Learning Portal. This accessibility allows students to review past lecture content and reference learned concepts when working on their final UX projects or to keep concepts fresh post-graduation.

Feedback

The BrainStation Learning Portal ensures students are keeping up with course content by providing opportunities to share their comprehension of UX Design concepts. This provides valuable feedback to Educators who can get a glimpse at students’ understanding and provide support where needed.

“In the real world, innovation is outpacing education and that's something we’ve recognized at BrainStation. We’re challenging how education is delivered, curated, and published. Our students and Educators benefit from the collaborative tools we’ve developed to help us get content researched, written, and peer reviewed faster than a traditional publishing cycle. We're digital-first in every facet of the phrase and that is something we’re going to continue pushing forward to guarantee our students receive the best education available.”

Student Project Showcase

Problem Space

To design for an opportunity that would allow and encourage people to read more, discuss books, meet like minded people and make new friends.

Project Description

My final project was called Book Club. I worked on this final project throughout the entire course; from the user research and sketching phase, to final wireframes and a clickable prototype.

Learning Outcomes

In the process of creating my final project I had the chance to really understand the process a UX Designer goes through on a daily basis, including the importance of empathizing with users from beginning to end, and using a human centred approach to inform every decision that needs to be made.

Gabriella Santos

“Being able to combine everything I learned into my final project, really made me feel like I developed immensely as a Designer, and definitely gave me the confidence I was looking for. Most of all, it reinforced how passionate I am about this, and that it's what I truly want to be doing everyday.”
