Is This Course For Me?

In order to create great digital experiences, it's important to put the user's needs first. User Experience Design is a growing field dedicated to crafting compelling digital experiences across multiple devices. The part-time course is ideal for those interested in improving customers' interactions with their product, or those interested in learning more about the field of digital design and associated career opportunities.

This course introduces students to the tools and methods of UX Design by emphasizing both the practical elements and theoretical approaches used to guide the design of digital experiences. Students will apply their learning by creating sketches, experience maps and user stories, using software to create wireframes and prototypes.

A design-thinking classroom experience facilitates learning by giving students the opportunity to apply course content to a final project of their choosing. Successful completion of this course equips students with the ability to design thoughtful digital experiences and prepares them for a career in UX Design.

Learning Portal

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.”

Mastery Based Learning

Knowledge testing is an essential component to mastering a new skill through our Mastery Based Learning Approach. Quizzes are layered throughout the program content to encourage you to reflect on new material, apply new concepts, and keep previous topics top of mind. Once submitted, our Educators can assess your comprehension of the course material and provide support where needed.

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.”
