The UX Designer Nanodegree program is comprised of content and curriculum to support three projects, and one capstone.

I just graduated from the UX designer nanodegree and wanted to share my thoughts and experiences about the course. Udacity mentions that students will design impactful user experiences for products in today’s digital world. Build a portfolio that showcases your ability to transform user research to high-fidelity interactive designs.

For those of you watching that do not know what UX design means, here’s a definition from one of the instructors in the nanodegree. “UX Design is understanding user needs and designing solutions with those needs in mind. We create products to solve the problems of users. UX design is the process that reminds us of the needs of our users. Ultimately, products are used by humans and should bring value to humans.”

The User experience nanodegree consists of the following projects:
Project 1: Formulate a Research Report
Develop a research plan around a specific topic of choice, conduct semi-structured interviews with real-world participants, and synthesize findings into a report that highlights the insights and needs of users.

Project 2: Develop a Validated Low-Fidelity Prototype
Create, test, and iterate prototypes of a defined concept that addresses research-identified user needs using design sprint methodologies and data collected from usability testing.

Project 3: Create and Improve a High-Fidelity Design
Turn a low-fidelity prototype into a production-ready, high-fidelity design based on interaction principles, design styles, and engagement data.

Capstone Project: Build a UX Portfolio Case Study
Construct a starter portfolio that markets one’s personal value and UX design capabilities using completed projects from the nanodegree program.

Overall, I really enjoyed the course and enjoyed the structure of the projects. If you are thinking about getting in the course, then watch the ending of my review because I give some insights for people who want to get in and whether it is a good option for you or not.
