UXD Testimonials

“The Rutgers UXD program offers a great balance of theory and practice for those interested in an immersive experience that simulates Agile/Lean UX product development. It covers contextual inquiry, prototyping, usability testing, how to evangelize for UX, and everything in between. Students work in teams to develop an actual product prototype, practicing what they've learned in lectures. The program is intense but exhilarating, and even seasoned professionals will walk away having learned something they can apply to their jobs.”
– Karin Steiner, Senior UX Designer, Datto, Inc.

“As a new student in UXD, the courses in Rutgers provides me a great chance to start my education. The well-organized courses helped me to build up my knowledge of UXD. In the class, Ronnie gave us lots of examples and taught us how to use the knowledge into real practice. It was helpful for me, who has no related experience before. Moreover, Ronnie is not only a good instructor but also a charming speaker. His enthusiasm and professional knowledge is awesome! I am so glad that I joined the class!!”
– Karyn Liao, Usability Research Intern at Scripps Network Interactive

“The class follows the format of a real-life user research study, giving the student a good sense of what to do once outside the real world. “
– Enrique Sallent, User Experience Manager, TD Ameritrade

“The UXD courses at Rutgers are not only a game-changer, but for me, they were a career changer. Ronnie presents the UXD principles in a way that they can easily be put into practice with real-world, relatable examples and that compel one to think about their business in a fresh, new way. I would recommend the UXD mini-master's program to anyone who is serious about building intuitive, helpful solutions and I would recommend Ronnie as an instructor to anyone who enjoys learning from someone who truly cares about student success.”

“David's fervent enthusiasm for Visual Design never wavered during the long weekends in which the class was held. He pushed me to do creative things that I had never done before. While some were more successful than others, I learned a great deal. He encouraged us to move outside of our comfort zones in order to explore other aspects of ourselves. He made Intro to Visual Design a journey and not just a required course in the UX concentration. Anyone who takes David's classes will have to work, but you will simultaneously have a lot of fun and learn a great deal.”
