    The best way to build your UX skills

    I often read online articles on books relating to graphic design and UX but it can be hard to find really great trustworthy content. Springboard took that pain away by curating a well rounded basis for UX designers. However the true value to this course is the one-on-one mentorship calls and the group office hours calls. This was a huge added value to gain insights from industry professionals with many years experience.

    As a design industry professional I wanted a course that wou...

    One of the best experiences for online/remote classes

    Springboard really do an amazing job, from the management down to the curriculum. Their communications in listening and improving their courses is incredible. The mentors are experts in their fields and give you great insight.

    I felt the mentors and also the management team/representatives were really good people. The mentors give you feedback throughout your project through email and weekly one-on-one meetings.

    The curriculum itself was challenging enough to keep you ...

    Flexible learning experience

    I really enjoyed my springboard course. I was able to learn a lot about data science at my own pace in my own time. I do have a background in programming and mathematics so I found the material relatively easy to take on. The mentoring element was what attracted me to the course and also what I found very helpful. Being able to talk to and get feedback from an expert data scientist was invaluable. I now intend to use my experience with springboard to help me find a job as a data scientist....

    UX Design

    Hello; I came to Springboard from a recommendation from a fellow teacher. I am a graphic designer with over thirty years experience in Print design. This was an excellent course introducing me to the functions of The User Experience Designer.

    Interviews, Surveys, Sorts, Personas, User Maps, User Flows, Site Maps, Wireframes and Usability testing all performed during a short period of time. All great experiences for someone who wanted to learn the UX process!

    Amazing Learning Experience

    I will start off by introducing myself - I am currently working as a software test analyst with absolutely zero knowledge of te field of UX. I was not hapopy with my job and wanted to learn something new, do something creative and moved towards the field of UX. I did a lot of research on the web on courses to take and came across this one. There were a lot of good reviews about the course and like everybody, I too though they might be fake. As a student at Springboard myself - I can assure...

    The right mix of mentorship + self-paced online learning

    I've enrolled in other online data analytics courses but this is the first one I completed!

    Having a mentor helped me

    • stay motivated
    • get through roadblocks
    • stick to a timeline and make progress every week. 
    • apply learnings to my day job or other related topics that interest me

    The content aligned with a bunch of new projects I was taking on in my sales ops role. Since my company didn't have capacity to train me,...

    Recommended!

    I took the UX Design course because I was about to wade into a major ecommerce platform shift at work and I wanted to be able to make the right design decisions. I got all of that and more. When you're dealing with programmers and designers without a clear UX understanding, the course comes in really handy. It was also helpful in terms of laying out ways to figure out what you need to know. I even learned to use some new tools. 

    The best part was probably the ...

    Best decision I made.

    I’m an alum of the Springboard Foundations of Data Science workshop and was blown away by the expert-curated course content. It’s amazing how frictionless the learning process becomes when you’re only looking at the best material out there for a specific topic, curated by folks who are industry practitioners in that field. Mentor and community support is incredible, and a wonderful team managing the product.

    Excellent course!

    The course material was very well curated (saved me a ton of time looking around for info piece by piece). The curriculum was laid out in a logical, step-by-step method, with theory followed by practice.

    The interaction within the Google+ community also helped as a social aspect, and was a great sounding board to bounce ideas around. Weekly office hours and linking up with mentors who are actually working in the industry was great to get an understanding of how the industry actua...

    Wonderful UX Course

    I'm a self-trained UX Designer based in Mexico. In my country is difficult fo find formal education on UX so It was hard to connect the dots before this course.

    I finally feel that my expertise in UX's different fields has certainly improved and I'm able to practice better UX and product design. 

    I loved that it was online and at my own pace, it allowed me to keep my full-time job. The mentorship is a fantastic guidance to orient learnings better and clear questions.

    Excellent hands-on course!

    The Foundations of Data Science course was a great way to get exposed to the field of data science and to learn the methods and techniques used to solve business problems. The coursework is valuable and easy to follow, and I found the capstone project work and weekly mentor calls and ongoing interactions to be the best part of the program.  Springboard's program to pair each student with a mentor is such a great idea that I benefitted from immensely. They have top notch mentors that are ex...

    A Wonderful Course!

    I, like many, saw an ad for Springboard's UX course on Facebook and it piqued my interest as I had already been looking to transition in my career from a graphic designer to a UI/Visual design role. After reviewing the curriculum and comparing the cost and features among it and a few other programs, I decided it was the best option for me... and boy am I glad I did!

    My background definitely prepared me for some of the concepts taught in this course, and I can say that even withou...
