Making progress

I’m almost halfway done with Google’s UX Design Professional Certificate! I finished the third course last night. I really enjoyed making digital wireframes and low-fidelity prototypes. I’m a little anxious going into the fourth course. It’s more research-focused, and I struggled a bit with some of the research portions in the second course, but I’m going to try to power through it so I can continue exploring Figma some more and get into Adobe XD to make some high-fidelity prototypes. I’m really excited by the progress I’m making and I’m going to use that motivation to work through this next course.

Two down, five to go!

I’ve finished the second course in Google’s UX Design Professional Certificate on Coursera! I actually finished it late Wednesday night after waiting for two peer projects to appear for review, and waiting on my project to be peer reviewed in return. And yesterday my fiancĂ© and I went hiking at Franklin Falls so I didn’t make time to post the update here. I think the second course in the program will end up being the hardest for me to wrap my head around fully, just because there was a lot of writing to explain things and I like to keep my writing short and sweet and to the point. That, and I think the way some prompts were worded weren’t as clear to me what was being asked. It definitely helped having examples and exemplars throughout the course so I could check to make sure my answers to prompts were matching up with what was expected. I’m on to course three today to start learning about building wireframes and low-fidelity prototypes, and I’m really excited to get to this phase! Wish me luck!
