Review of Lynda.com Course – User Experience Fundamentals for Web Design

AsLynda.com summer nears, I am looking into several professional development courses to prevent “brain drain”.  In perusing the offerings of MOOCs (massive open online course), I was greatly disappointed by the lack of UX focused material.  I found courses to be either overly generic or heavy on the programmer/designer /technology side.  Nothing really appropriate for a librarian interested in UX stuff.

However, I recently came across Sarah Hawk’s review of a UX course offered by Lynda.com. Hawk’s gives a detailed and honest review of the User Experience Fundamentals for Web Design course including a list of pros/cons.

Pros

  • Videos are short and concise, in digestible chunks.
  • Information is well backed up with explanations, studies, and examples.
  • The karaoke-like transcript highlighting makes following along and taking notes easy.

Cons

  • There is no variation in the slides, which becomes monotonous after a while.
  • At times things feel a bit rushed, as if Chris is trying to fit too much content into a limited length video.
  • So much information is given that it is hard to retain and remember key points.
