“One of the best, most well-researched and balanced between breadth and depth in subject material of all NN/g classes. I've taken "the missing link" in my education in terms of new and critical learning. Although a bit more academic in material, she added enough case studies, experience and created a presentation that was engaging so it was still very interesting and never got dry."
“I consider this course to be super helpful in my work activities. I'm faced with similar design decisions on a daily basis and now I feel like I have the knowledge to evaluate the situation and to ask the right questions that would help me make an educated choice."
Bozhidar Stambolov, Paysafe, Sofia, Bulgaria
“This is a great course to get a broad idea of identifying and assessing problems and making appropriate decisions for each use-case. It provides you with the tools you need to implement this from day one. The course is very well structured, and the instructor is a joy to listen to. Highly recommended."
“Very insightful and interactive. Loved the different group breakouts while still learning new content. It discusses different structures and framework to determine the tradeoffs and what makes the most sense to the situation or problem you have. A lot of great techniques that can be applied in real life scenarios."
““设计权衡和用户体验决策框架Class Feedback"provided valuable tools and frameworks I have been looking for to anchor my design practice: e.g. "what is the right tool for the design problem at hand?" and "how do I know if I have covered enough ground for this design problem? High-quality content, well structured and paced, nicely delivered and organized, with a good mix of case studies, polls, and group exercises. I had a great virtual class experience with UX fellows around the world. The Zoom comment feature supported real-time live discussions really well."

Super easy to follow along with Maria and stay engaged while also having opportunities for application in the polls and breakout activities. Maria is a wonderful instructor. She's clearly very experienced, knowledgeable, comfortable, and confident in what she's talking about!"
