What our students say:

The missing link in Design! Dr Weinschenk's course is the best practical method I found (and I was searching for it for ages!) for the part in the design process between mental models and how to make your decisions about how to organize information and entice user actions. Worth mentioning: it can be used effectively for non-linear designs as well.

Susan, once again, you nailed this topic just perfectly. Can't stop learning from you :-)

Enjoyed the course! — Gives a good clear methodology of steps you can take to make more informed design decisions.

Very clear and useful. I found Susan to be very clear and easy to understand. The content aligned with my expectations and I will be using this course as a reference during my future projects.

A useful course not only for designers. I work as an interaction designer and i found this course very useful because I got another insight into pre-design processes what help to design intuitive and useful products. A lot of techniques what Susan talks about I know and use so i would recommend this course for everyone who would like to start (or for everyone who needs to improve his knowledge) with designing of websites and web applications but with design of almost everything.

Excellent information - Again, Susan has brought many details to bare that are often overlooked in many UXD-based projects. Even if some percentage of these recommendations and practices are fanned into being on our projects, they/we will be so much better off and will produce exponentially better web sites/applications. Thanks Susan.

Easy to understand with examples on conceptual model. Creating a conceptual model of your users is a very important phase in user analysis. Though I had read about conceptual models earlier, the faculty's ability to explain the conceptual model in a simple way with practical examples made me understand it in a better way. Thanks, Susan!
