Inspired by nature's sunrise, the Wake-up Light Alarm uses a unique combination of light and sound to wake you in a more natural way, so you feel more refreshed. All this, at your finger tips in a mobile app.
At the scheduled time, the light in the room turns on and gradually increases within until your room is filled with bright yellow light, simulating a sunrise. You can add customized sounds to the alarm to complete the gentle wakeup experience.
An app for parents to help them in parenting. Developed based on thorough research of client data, detailed user research and analysis of parenting psychology, parents are asked to fill out a questionnaire. Their responses are evaluated and their parenting style is identified. The type of news feed they receive is customized based on their parenting style, without letting them know which parenting group they belong to.
Enrolling for theCertified User Experience Designer (CXD) at ilakku Learning has been the best decision I have made for my professional career. I met so many different people, who like me, had very little work experience in User Experience (UX).
The course materials and the interactions helped me understand the importance of involving the end users during the initial phases of product design. What is even more important is that I now know how and when to involve the users in the process.
Personally, I feel it does not matter if you don't have knowledge about UX. But, if you follow the curriculum and give it your 100%, you will come out of the course as a UX professional. I went into the program wanting to learn UX Design and now I'm a UX Designer!
Narayanan, our instructor and mentor, is incredibly talented, supportive, and knowledgeable about UX principles and design. What I liked the most about the course was the practical applications of each concept to daily activities in our life. I can tell that he not only knows about what he teaches but also that he enjoys teaching, which I find is key for a course to be successful.
I would not trade my time at ilakku Learning for anything. It was an amazing experience!
I joined the Certified User Experience Designer (CXD)ilakku Learning hoping to learn UX/UI design. And, ilakku Learning delivered more than I expected!
I would say that the course is such an eye-opener for people like me, from the Programming field, who have never pursued a formal education in design.During the class, I thought about the websites I've created and evaluated it using the design principles I learned. I now realize that these website were designed by a programmer and it shows!The coursegave me a new way of looking at design. I will definitely apply the design principles to my future projects.
Curriculum: The course is structured well, so that it is not overwhelming. It is a good balance of traditional lectures and hands-on projects where theoretical concepts are paired with practical exercises. This helped me understand and remember what I'd learnt. The curriculum covered all stages of the UX design process beginning from user research and strategy up to visual design.
Mentorship: The best part about the course was the trainer, Narayanan. He is an experienced UX professional who knows the ins and outs of the UX design industry. He was always there to guide, advice and support us (especially for a newcomer like me!).
Job Search: The final phase of the course was the 'Portfolio and Job Search' phase. ilakku Learning created an excellent framework of short exercises and activities for this. Narayanan helped me get through the daunting phase of making a portfolio, practicing for interviews and learning to present my work. It definitely helped me get where I am today. :)
Thank you very much!
I'm really glad I took time to join this course. I've learned some things that I can immediately apply to my company and grow the business.
Narayanan, our trainer, taught us many valuable psychological and behavioral insights and patterns. Concepts presented were intuitive and useful, both in long-term digital strategy and day-to-day practical application.
A lot of this stuff may be common sense but understanding the science behind it is powerful. Knowing how to appeal to an audience based on more than analytics and stats, but also understanding why, will be essential for my business in the long run.
The course has made me reevaluate my company's brand, keeping user focus in mind, and creating a product that is not only user-friendly, but promises to set standards in the industry.
I look forward to sharing what I've learned with my teams as well.
