The velocity course is a great way to get the user-centered design process in one practical, condensed workshop. It is current information that can be used immediately in projects.
The opportunity to practice during the class is extremely helpful to solidify some of the principles and techniques and be able to use them again. I’m leaving the class feeling fully equipped to bring great processes to projects and teams, and ultimately deliver usable, desirable, and exceptional user experiences.
The UX course was a great insight into the different processes and tools. There was a lot of content covered in the course in a short amount of time, but applying it to a project was helpful in understanding it. MC and Charbel are great instructors who were generous with their time and able to pull from their experiences to explain specific processes. The other students who did the course were super cool and that made a huge difference.
I would definitely recommend Academy Xi! It’s the best way to immerse yourselves in the world of User Experience regardless of what your current role is. You’ll get to learn with a group of cool folks from all walks of life and learn from some of the smartest and most inspiring mentors you’ll ever have. The small number of the class makes an intimate and rewarding experience. The curriculum highly focuses on UX and doesn’t try to be anything more than that – which I found refreshing.
The course covered a lot of content that was both intriguing and challenging to my preconceived ideas about UX design. The instructor made me think outside the box, and also taught us that as UX designers, we are an advocate for the everyday user.
