Course Details:

In Lean UX for Wearables you will follow along with bite-sized video instruction and practical course activities (along with occasionally witty banter) through a step-by-step process of creating a prototype for your wearable app. In this course you will learn and practice five skills for successful Lean UX Wearable design:

1. Envision: tell a truly compelling wearable product story your team will fall in love with… even if you never sketched before.
2. Design: create a clean, consistent wearable interface that adheres to Apple Watch/Android Wear guidelines yet also reflects your app’s unique personality… so you clearly stand out from competition.
3. Prototype: easily draw mobile and tablet wireframes with sticky notes, so you can quickly test your design ideas directly with your potential users… and save *months* by designing and prototyping at the same time.
4. User-Test: learn to ask non-leading questions while getting to the core of the problem in 5 minutes or less… so you can test 20 participants before lunch and return to the office with a proven design.
5. Collaborate: integrate research and design seamlessly into the heart of any dev process… and never again hear that “user research is too expensive and time consuming”.

What you’ll do:

  • Watch short videos (3-12 minutes) that explain Wearable design principals and Lean UX methodologies
  • Learn how to apply Lean UX Wearables design thinking through carefully chosen video case studies
  • Meet privately with your instructor, Greg Nudelman, during one-on-one laser coaching sessions to review your designs and get unstuck if needed
  • Connect with a global community of learners around provoking discussion questions, supported by your instructor
  • Practice key concepts through interactive activities: visioning, designing, prototyping, user testing, team communication
  • Apply what you learn to a project challenge: designing your own wearable app for Apple Watch or Android Wear
  • See and learn from how others approach their projects
  • Give feedback on your classmates’ ideas and get their input on yours
  • Get your questions answered and get instant feedback on your designs live during weekly online office hours

Talya Carrie“I’m going to be working with someone you know – Skip A.! I interviewed with him last week. We were laughing about your sense of humor and the class. I thought its probably nice for you to know where you alumni students end up. Taking your class was one of the best things I did to jump my career forward. For that I am ever so grateful for your time and energy :)”

dana lynn“I took Greg’s $1 Dollar Prototype workshop in September of 2016 at the Big Design Conference in Dallas. The workshop influenced me a great deal. I used Greg’s process to prototype a mobile experience that I designed for my Masters in HCI capstone. I highly recommend Greg’s workshops, books and other educational offerings. He is undoubtedly an expert in the mobile UX space and an influencer as well. He also put in a good word for me for a recent job offer, which was super kind!”

anastasia walia“I took Greg’s SFSU UXD course. Greg was extremely helpful in giving me the guidance to make my career transition from sales to UXD. He continued to help me after the course was over and is still to this day someone I can turn to for advice. It took a lot of work, drive, and focus but today I am a UX Designer for a San Francisco startup. I recommend his course for anyone who is looking to become a designer or wanting to become a better designer. I would have done this sooner but I’ve been traveling the world. Working remote, I wouldn’t have had this flexibility as a sales person! Thanks for all the help and I hope the recommendation helps out!”

will krause“Greg is an excellent UX/UI design instructor – I enjoyed his UX/UI Design class at SF State. His class helped to teach me about planning mobile products in a way that saves time, low-cost paper prototyping and testing of mobile designs, working in an Agile design team, and presenting the results. Taking Greg's class really helped to open doors for me in my professional career.”

tetyana krekh“Greg worked on our initial design for the site. I found him to be professional, insightful and easy to work with. He was very attentive to our needs and requirements and produced quality results (TravelTipz recently beat out TripAdvisor in the Russian market.) I recommend Greg for his expertise in UI and for his diligent work.”
Tetyana Hrekh

bryan tinsley“Greg’s design suggestions, which included thumbnail images, helped conversion quite a bit. Soon our competition copied and, in some cases, upgraded their search. All the new search interfaces, however, were limited in the amount of image data they could show at one time. That led us, using Greg’s original ideas, to the idea of a thumbnail of a thumbnail. In our industry and for our type of images I think it is very valuable information. Greg was able to provide very insightful ideas with a limited knowledge of our company and based on a few brief conversations. I am also a big fan of his book, Designing Search.”

During a very dynamic and hands-on course I was guided to analyze, recommend and implement changes in order to improve navigability and ease of use in different sites.”
Lucrecia Carreras
Marketing Director at Adistec, Hult Alumni

marti gold“I first met Greg at his all-day, hands-on seminar at SXSW 2013 promoting “Android Design Patterns.” While many experts speak in vague generalities and buzzwords, within minutes it was apparent that Greg had a true mastery of his subject. His seminars, and his books, are for people who want straight talk and solid, detailed visual examples of mobile UI best practices.
There is an anecdote from that event which, to me, illustrated both Greg’s outstanding personal character and his genuine interest in expanding his own knowledge: At one point, not knowing I was in the audience, he showed one of my designs as an example of ‘asking for unnecessary information.’ At the next break, I stopped and introduced myself, and explained why that particular form field was indeed important as it impacted the prices a customer would see. Rather than just smiling and dismissing that information as most speakers would have done, when the session restarted he asked for the whole room’s attention. He then told everyone about our conversation and even went back to that slide to show the visual in question — and emphasized why it was important that all designers fully understand business requirements before passing judgements. In my experience, only a small handful of authors would have done that.
Therefore, if you are looking for an author/speaker for internal staff training, consulting, or upcoming UX event, I recommend Greg and his books very highly. He is able to effectively and rapidly communicate real world UI solutions that can immediately improve any mobile application design.”

Is this an online course, or a course in an actual location?
This course is 100% on-line.

How long will I have access to course materials?
You will have lifetime access to all video lessons, recordings and course materials. (That is, there will be no more group sessions or 1:1 coaching after April 22nd, but you will have lifetime access to all of the recordings.)

What will I need to access the course?
You will be able to access course lessons via streaming video on your desktop, mobile or tablet via web browser or app.
To access office hours sessions, you will need to use GoToWebinar, which works with most browsers but may require a small plugin to work with your computer. You will be submitting exercises for evaluation and participate in the community using a web forum.

Is Certificate of Completion included?
Yes. You will receive a Certificate of Completion after you turn in your final project and a badge you can post on your website and social network profiles. You may take as long as you like to turn in your final project.

Is there a deadline? Do I have to complete lessons and assignments before some date?
No. There are no deadlines. This is a self-paced course, designed for a busy professional. Which means you can view the lessons at any time and take as long as you wish to complete the assignments and turn them in to get feedback and your course completion certificate.

What if I miss an office hours session?
Office hours sessions occur twice a week for 6 weeks. They are for answering your questions and providing live feedback on selected designs and to add value to your lessons by having an open discussion with instructor and other students. It is not necessary to attend office hours to finish the course. Besides, all office hours sessions are recorded, so if you miss one or two you can simply watch them later.

What time will the office hours sessions be held?
Office hours sessions will be held twice a week at different times, when the majority of students can attend the sessions. Office hours session time will vary from week to week to make every effort to accommodate all time zones. If you don’t see the session at a convenient time, just attend the one next week. You can always review the recording or ask instructor any (reasonable) number of questions in the forum or during your 3 included one-on-one laser coaching sessions.

What are laser coaching sessions?
Laser coaching sessions are intensive one-on-one private 20-minute meetings with your instructor and coach, Greg Nudelman. You are free to use your individual sessions to review your designs, interviewing techniques, team management and communication practices, and really anything else you need to work through to crush any barriers that stand in the way of your subject mastery. You get 3 laser coaching sessions in this course to enable rapid progress through course material and ensure your success.

Do I have to be an experienced designer to take this course?
No. Anyone can take the course and get tremendous value. However, the course is optimized for an intermediate level: someone who has done some UX design, coding or product management in the past, but wishes to get hands-on practice designing for wearables and in using Lean UX Principles.

What materials will I need for this course?
You will need 3 packs of sticky notes: 1 1/2 x 1 7/8 inch, 3 x 3 inch and 3 x 5 inch and some pencils or pens in 3-4 colors. These can be had for about $5 at any office supply store or on (detailed instructions will be provided). All other course materials are included (Instructional Videos, Lessons, $1 Prototype e-book, Forum and more.)

Do I need to have a wearable device?
No. But it is recommended that you get one. Fortunately, basic wearable devices like lower-end FitBit are available for under $50. If you really don’t want to purchase a wearable device, we recommend you visit an Apple Store or an electronics store like BestBuy in your area regularly during the 6 weeks of class and “play” with a wearable device to get familiar with various features and capabilities.

How will this course benefit me in my career?
Most students find that after taking this course they are much more confident in innovating within their company, and their design thinking helps them stand out. Thus they are more likely to get first dibs on strategic wearable, mobile and IoT (Internet of Things) design projects with high management visibility, so they more likely to get promoted. Many of my Hult, Marquette U and SFSU students reached their career goals becoming Creative Directors, UX Directors and Product Managers. We provide valuable, actionable skills — where your ambition will take you is up to you.
