Excellent course - very informative, well paced, and very applicable to current issues in design and computers. It was also wisely structured: The class offered two tracks- a lecture and quiz based one for novices, and a more involved project based track for more experienced students. Being a novice without the resources to complete the projects, I was very happy to be able to be able to learn the fundamentals and evaluate my progress with quizzes. Scott Klemmer was also a very good instructor - never boring and clear in all he explained. Very glad I took this class!
Fantastic course. Hands-on projects, useful information. The course guides you through the process of need finding in the information realm, coming up with some possible solutions, designing a smart phone app or a web page to deliver the solution, testing the app or web page.. No coding needed, you get a temporary license to software that does the coding for you. Be warned, the official estimate of 8 to 10 hours is low, more like 10 to 15 hours per week. Worth every bit of it. Also be warned, many/most students will want/need to take the course twice, once to get familiar with the concepts, a second time to focus on the projects. The course is set up to encourage taking it twice, you can earn an "Apprentice" certificate for doing just a little more than watching the videos.
