About This Class

Finding and scheduling suitable research participants is one of the toughest logistical challenges of UX research. There are many ways to recruit research participants, which also means there are many opportunities to get the wrong people in your studies. This course will provide a detailed overview of best practices for finding, screening and incentivizing participants so you can make sure your research efforts are as effective as possible.

This class is for anyone interested in conducting UX research. No prior experience conducting research is necessary, but it will be helpful to have a general understanding of UX research best practices and methods. I won’t be covering how to choose which UX research method in this course. All class materials will be provided.

This is a really concise breakdown of all the most important information that you need to recruit and screen UX research participants. As a UX researcher, I'm aware how easy it is to fall into certain traps when you screen! I felt like this was a great intro or refresher.... something to watch before you get going.
Thanks for breaking the content down into logical components Amanda! I also appreciate the text slides that can be referenced in practice. I also like how there's a range of more introductory content and deeper content depending on where you are in a project.
Nice concise chapters. Good length of the individual videos. Overview over basic stages of finding participants.
