Project Description

Get user feedback on your product or service.

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is get user feedback on your own product or service. This could be a website, application, or even a physical product. Use one of the methods from the lessons, or combine several for a deeper understanding.

This is an opportunity to gain intelligent user feedback so that you can iterate and improve your product.

  

DELIVERABLE

Use your project workspace as an ongoing place to document your progress, share your learnings, and post your work.

A complete project will include:

  • Description of your product or service (what is it? what stage of development?)
  • Research questions and goal
  • Insights and/or improvements

  

FAQs

I don't have a product. Can I still do the project?

Feel free to do this exercise with any product you love.

Where do I post?

Use the community tab for quick discussions, questions, answers. Use your project workspace (just click "Start a Project") as an ongoing place to share your journey map, progress, questions, and learnings.

I want to learn more about UX. What do you recommend?
