    UX Honest Review

    Dear Sirs,

      I'm writing an honest review of the UX Design Course at Springboard.   Essentially the course is a bunch of links readily available on the internet. I was surprised when I found out that all resources are online links that I can already find myself. And they are charged at a staggering price of $499 per month! which is nearly $4000 HKD. I can seriously tell you that it is NOT worth the price. Waste of money. I ...

    Hi there,
     
    I'm sorry to be reading how disappointed you
    are! At Springboard, we really care about our students’ learning experience. 
     
    Yes, you’re right in that our UX Design course is curated. Today, there is a lot of information available. At the same time, we know how challenging it can be to find the best, up-to-date materials. That’s why we’ve worked with industry-experts to gather quality information and create a curriculum that guides students through the evergreen process of UX Design. We hope that students can confidently trust what they are learning with us.
     
    The mentor relationship is one of our favorite parts of the offering. We know relationships are a major key to success. We take this component very seriously. In fact, each student is personally matched to a mentor when s/he starts the course. We take special care to account for the skills each individual wants to learn. Any student who has mentor concerns is more than welcome to reach out to her/his student advisor.
     
    With all this said, I know you are disappointed. I invite you to reach out to your student advisor. We’ve got a whole family of Springboarders dedicated to help students reach their goals.

    Definitely a worthwhile investment!

    I'm a healthcare researcher hoping to pivot to UX design and research. The UX course such a wonderful way to begin the transition. You can develop a solid foundation in UX design concepts and get constant feedback from your designated mentor. It has been such an eye-opening experience. The best way to learn about the job you want is to talk to and learn from the people who hold those positions. This is what Springboard strives to do. It is geared towards opening up pathways for peopl...

    A new bar for online learning

    Springboard really impressed me. They put together a great curriculum, and you get weekly 1 on 1 time with your mentor (video). Everything is handled through their slick website which makes it very easy to keep track of everything. 

    You are more or less subscribing to this service for a monthly fee until you complete the course in which you can always come back and reference the material. This really helps motivate you to keep on task. They are also very flexible allowing you to ...

    Excellent course for beginners

    I completed Data Science Intensive program over 4 months and enjoyed it immensely. Firstly, the mentor experience was excellent and the hightlight of the course for me. The projects at the end of each module are well thought of and relevant. It was a great way to practice what I had just learnt. I was a beginner in Data Science and this course let me learn the concepts step-by-step at my own pace. Totally worth the money I paid for it. Since its a month-by-month payment, it is flexible.

    Highly recommended!

    I researched a lot about the skills needed, the kind of practice required and the importance of a mentor when trying to dive deep into the field of Data Science. I spoke to people who were data scientists and they stressed about the positive effect a constant mentor can have in such a phase. Springboard understands this very well and tackles it in the best possible way by roping in industry experts who become your extremely helpful mentors (who else could teach you better?!).

    Foundations of Data Science

    SpringBoard was a brilliant stepping stone in field of Data Science. The curriculum was very well-structured and mentorship was amazing. And the best part - building a solid foundation in R programming language by completing the Capstone Project.

    Very good curriculum

    I had UX design course at Springboard. During 3 months I had a wonderful self-learning experience. I like how they put every chapter together and how to direct you to complete your project step by step. They also keep updating the curriculum, adding new skills and tools for us. I also learned a lot from my mentor, who I met online every week. He reviewed my tasks every week and gave me lots of valuable feedback.

    Great curriculum and mentor support

    Overall I found the coursework for Data Science Intensive to be very comprehensive covering different aspects. What I found most beneficial was the mentor support and online community. Thanks to my mentor I explored a completely new domain for my capstone project and was really excited to learn something new.

    The career assitance that is now available is a great addition to the program.

    Good to have a guide along the way

    I was attracted to this program because at the time in 2015, and I think still now though to a lesser extent, it was doing something innovative by creating a curriculum of the "best of the best" content from around the web, then pairing that with weekly mentor check-ins plus opportunity to have regular Google Hangouts sessions to ask more questions in. The mentor sessions were adequate, but felt too short at 30 minutes, and were somewhat undirected. If I were to start this now (or proceed ...

    Gaining confidence

    I decided to take this UX Design course as a refresher before getting back on the job market. After having spent a year on maternity leave and another year off two years ago as well, I wasn't as confident coming back to work, where my company had hired 4 new designers since my departure. My full-time job being a web designer, I felt I needed something new that I could bring to the team, both for securing my position along with giving myself an edge above the other designers.

    UX Design Workshop

    Great intro to UX Design. I loved that they pair you with a mentor and you get weekly video chat calls with them. Very helpful for feedback and keeping you accountable in the course. The curriculum was set up well and the course is self-paced so it's up to you on how fast or slow you want to go through it. Overall great experience!
