    Springboard UX Course Review

    Initially, what I had in mind was to find a UX course that wouldn’t affect my work schedule and offers a reasonable course fee. I came across Springboard online and decide to give it a try since they charge on a monthly subscription basics. Everything turns out amazing for me within just 4 months. I graduated with a UX certificate, made useful connections with liked minded people over the springboard community and also get to learn UX from an industry expert who is patience and provide car...

    UX Design

    I completed the Springboard UX course in December of 2018, and as a previous graphic/web designer I could not be happier with it. I recently took some time off from work to stay home with my small kids, and am looking to get back into the field. Springboard gave my resume a boost and helped me fill in some gaps, as well as the confidence boost I needed! I worked with a terrific mentor, Michelle, who was able to give me advice and feedback that I needed to complete my Capstone project! If y...

    Fantastic experience over-all!

    I'd heard that the Springboard mentors were great, and I was not let down. My mentor had a huge amount of UX experience and was happy to share it with me. He was super supportive the entire time, and I'm sure will be there to offer advice as time passes.

    I was surprised that most of the course was sourced from online resources. There is no original content, but this was not a bad thing. The conent they have currated is of a high quality and would have taken me a long time to find...

    Great Overview

    Springboard was a great overview to the UX design process. The curriculum was thorough and my mentor helped me to focus on what really matters based on his experience in the field. I work full time and have a family, so the course took me a little less than 4 months. For the $2000 I paid, I wish I had more than the one capstone project to add to my portfolio. I am thankful that I have access to the curriculum after the course is done so that I can go through the process for another project...

    Springboard Jumpstarted my Career

    o I completed my Bachelors, went directly into my Masters, but then was really struggling with landing a job. I was failing the technical interviews, and then a good friend of mine recommended Springboard.

    I took the entrance exam (At the time it was timed exam with a few simple to moderate coding problems) and was accepted into the program.

    In my first week I was assigned a mentor and introduced to all of the software / learning platforms.

    The first month was...

    A decent online course experience

    The springboard UX Design online course is a cheap alternative to the in-person bootcamps. The course goes through the basics of UX design, allows students to complete 1 full project, and pairs students with mentors. Mentors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful and are well-connected in the industry. The project goes through the full UX design process, and gives you material to put onto your portfolio at the end of the course. The online forums, or community, is composed of fellow class...

    UX Design course graduate

    I attended the Springboard UX Design program from September 2017 to April 2018 and had a great experience. I initially started my course in 2016 for three months before pausing the program. Since that time the curriculum was significantly revamped for the better. The strongest aspect of the course are the mentors providing weekly coaching. I had three mentors throughout my Springboard courses, two of which had experience in the game development industry, which was important to me. One of m...

    Intro to Data Science

    I completed the introduction to data science course in 3 months. The course used the R programming language and covered important skills required of data scientist. This included data wrangling, data visualizations, data story telling, probability and statistics, and machine learning. The course also provided career resources. The material in this course was good and I believe I learned a lot. There is also a capstone project you are required to complete. This is where you bring all the sk...

    Taught me more Analysis than Science, but I'm okay with that for now

    Pros

    - Mentor was great. Really guided me and showed me how someone in the field thinks. Also put my name in at the start up that she works at and they hired me as a contractor!

    -Lots of practice on the analytics side. I feel like I'm pretty knowledgeable now

    -Mock interviews and career coaches, especially Allison, were great for preparing for interviews. 

    Cons

    -Was unemployed and finished in 4.5 months. I find it quite hard to believe some...

    Springboard - Great UX Course

    I really enjoyed Springboard's UX course. Over just a few months I learned the whole UX process from start to finish. The mentorship aspect is one thing that really set this program apart for me. It was great to have 1:1 time with a professional in this field. I also really liked that it was at my own pace, as I am already working full time as a UX designer and could only commit so many hours per week. Overall I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in UX.
