    UX Design Online

    I took this course between September and December 2020.  It was once per week for 3 hours at a time and then a few hours each week outside of class.  To make the most out of the class you really need to spend time outside of class hours building upon your ideas for your final project.  The structure of the course was to design the user flow of an app of your choice.  Throughout each lesson you were to build upon your final presentation i.e. each class gave you time in break-out sessions ...

    Amazing experience

    Curriculum is well-balanced and matched to the most in-demand skills. Instructors are well-versed, great at explaining concepts, and capable of suiting many learning styles. Bountiful support from TAs round-the-clock. In-depth, high-touch career support for life. Can't recommend Wyncode more highly!

    UX Design - Full Time Diploma

    This is a full time UX Design program that focuses on teaching you the UX and the UI components of Product Design. It was done completely remotely. It initially had 2 instructors and an associate instructor, about halfway through the course, 1 instructor was taken to do the dedicated online course and we had no choice on which instructor they should take. We were then left with 1 instructor and another associate/in training instructor. The in training one didn't provide much guidance whe...

    Hands-on practical learning

    I’ve taken two courses (digital marketing and data analytics) and can’t recommend it enough. The instructors have day jobs in the disciplines they’re teaching so I find what they teach has real-life practicality to it. They’re great at answering questions about getting into the field, and teaching not just theory but practical knowledge you can’t learn from a book. The final projects require you to consolidate all your learnings into one final pitch of sorts - really great courses for an...

    10 week web development course

    I recently completed the 10 week part time web development program. I found the online live course to be a really great option that allowed for the convenience of taking the class from anywhere, but also provided the structure that I needed with a designated required class time each week.  As a designer who frequently interacts with our development team, I took this course to better understand the dev process. I was happy with the knowledge I gained by the end of th...

    Social Media Marketing

    The social media marketing course covers most of the social platforms and dives deeper in Facebook ads specifically, which I believe is the most valuable aspect of the course. I think there should be a Facebook ads certification that goes along with this course and that could add more value to it but it's also something you can go and get yourself. 

    If you have none or limited knowledge of social platforms this is a great way to learn the basics and strategies across various platf...

    Digital Marketing Certificate

    I really enjoyed my learning experience with BrainStation! I signed up for this course because I was looking to start a career in digital marketing and I had very limited professional experience. As a learner with little experience in the field, the curriculum was exactly what I was looking for touching on very important areas such as SEO, paid social ads, paid search ads, social media, Google Analytics and email marketing. The instructors (Deborah and Jordan) were really great, friendly...

    Social Media Marketing (Online Live)

    I’ve completed two courses now at BrainStation – Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing. While Digital Marketing provides a good (high level) overview of many digital channels (including a week on social media), it was helpful to dedicate the full 7 weeks to Social Media Marketing. The curriculum dives into Facebook and Instagram with less time allocated to YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Influencers.

    Worst Experience Ever

    1) The content that is taught be BrainStation in their web development program is not even adequate knowledge to lend a job in their affiliate company Konrad.

    2) There is hardly any support after you complete the program. If you bring this up and keep bugging them you will surely be on their "black list". 

    3) There is hardly any  Database and Authorization covered in the course. Which is one of the keys.

    4) Waste of Time, and Money!! Double loss!!

    Product Management course

    I took the 10-week in-Class Product Management course in Vancouver. I am a current Product Manager and had read multiple books prior to attending. The main difference between a MOOC and a Brainstation course is having an industry expert live. You can ask questions to both the instructor and your classmates. I'd recommend Brainstation after you have a basic understanding of your course topic (use free MOOC courses/podcasts/books) to develop greater depth.
