How to Approach Assignments - UX Design for Mobile Developers

  • 0:00 - 0:03
    So, before we jump into these questions, let's talk
  • 0:03 - 0:06
    a bit about how to approach these assignments. Most
  • 0:06 - 0:09
    of these questions won't have a correct answer. Rather
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    than asking you to choose the correct definition of user
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    experience we're actually going to ask you to do some
  • 0:14 - 0:18
    design. We're also going to ask a lot of questions where
  • 0:18 - 0:21
    the only output from you to us is your
  • 0:21 - 0:25
    response to the question, did you do this? Now obviously,
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    the purpose of a question like this is not to
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    prevent plagiarism. The assumption here is you are in this course,
  • 0:31 - 0:35
    you want to learn how to improve your design skills. And,
  • 0:35 - 0:38
    anyways, if you are actually enrolled in the class, your final
  • 0:38 - 0:41
    grade of pass or no pass will be based only on
  • 0:41 - 0:44
    your final project. So, the purpose of a question like this
  • 0:44 - 0:47
    is really to help you keep track of the questions you've
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    answered and which ones you haven't. You get that nice little
  • 0:51 - 0:54
    orange bubble filled in somewhere up here in the
  • 0:54 - 0:59
    navigation when you've completed a question. And, another part of
  • 0:59 - 1:01
    the reason why we ask these questions is for
  • 1:01 - 1:03
    us, and for the continued improvement of this class. We
  • 1:03 - 1:05
    want to know if the people taking this class
  • 1:05 - 1:09
    are doing the assignments. We're also going to ask you
  • 1:09 - 1:12
    to submit to the forum quite a bit. And let
  • 1:12 - 1:16
    me actually talk about that a bit more. So working
  • 1:16 - 1:18
    on this course with Nasman and Isabel has
  • 1:18 - 1:21
    been awesome. Pretty early into the design of
  • 1:21 - 1:25
    this class, we realized that the design process
  • 1:25 - 1:28
    that. We at Udacity have sort of converged on
  • 1:28 - 1:32
    over the last few years, is essentially identical
  • 1:32 - 1:35
    to the design process that Nasman and Isabelle
  • 1:35 - 1:38
    advocate for, in the world of software. One
  • 1:38 - 1:41
    example of this, in less than four, you are
  • 1:41 - 1:44
    going to learn how to take the things that
  • 1:44 - 1:47
    Android can do really well and leverage those opportunities to
  • 1:47 - 1:51
    make amazing experiences for your users. But, more generally what
  • 1:51 - 1:54
    I think's going on here is, you should know as
  • 1:54 - 1:57
    a designer, what you are uniquely positioned to do
  • 1:57 - 2:00
    well. No matter what you're designing. And then you should
  • 2:00 - 2:04
    do that thing well. In these massive classes that we've
  • 2:04 - 2:06
    been making for a while now, we've realized that one
  • 2:06 - 2:08
    thing we are uniquely positioned to do
  • 2:08 - 2:13
    well is leverage this amazing, massive body of
  • 2:13 - 2:18
    enthusiastic, diverse, intelligent students who are all thinking
  • 2:18 - 2:21
    and doing projects about the same sort of
  • 2:21 - 2:23
    stuff. And that's, that's a really huge
  • 2:23 - 2:26
    learning opportunity. So when we ask you to
  • 2:26 - 2:28
    write something down or share something in the
  • 2:28 - 2:31
    forum. That's, that's why. We want you to
  • 2:31 - 2:36
    not only learn from the writing experience itself, but to
  • 2:36 - 2:38
    share that with other students and read what other students
  • 2:38 - 2:41
    have to say. This, this sort of social learning is
  • 2:41 - 2:46
    a really potentially important part of the online learning experience
