The best training in UX Design is the experience, but obviously is also important sometimes to have some training and clarify some concepts.
The last strong course that I had was a Course in UX Design. I would like also to mention my Degree in Science of Communication and my Master in Multimedia helped a lot in the deep understanding of the concepts of UX Design.
I want to explain here some details about my training and education.
1) UX Design Course
It was a course in Academy class, in London in 2015.
The main topics of the course were:
- Gathering user data;
- Documenting user data;
- Analysing user data;
- Creating Personas;
- Flow charts;
The course was extremely useful and taught a clear pratical method.
2) Degree in Science of Communication
During the 5 years of studying the University of Salerno in Italy I had 24 exams. Some of them are very close to some of the concepts that I use in the User Experience Design Applications:
- Sociology of Communication (that can really be helpful to define the "persona");
- Methods and techniques of social research;
- Business Economics and Management
3) Master in Multimedia
During the Master I learnt a lot of technical tools that I am still using (Html, CSS, Adobe Creative Suite, etc... etc...)
