Hi- I'm embarking on a new job search and feel I need to brush up on/improve some skills. Can anyone recommend some good online courses for IxD or usability, usability research, etc? Not necessarily leading to any kind of degree, just some good, practical classes. Hopefully not too expensive, as well.
thanks very much!
Check out http://www.bentley.edu/graduate/ms/mshfid.cfm for an online HCI course
If you want to brush up on any visual design skills, or Adobe Suite applications, go for Lynda dot com. I think there video tutorials are awesome. But these are more "learning the tools" and not so much theory or usability/research courses.
Best of luck!
