Project/Homework Instructions

There are three mini-projects required for this asynchronous course. You must submit all 3 mini-projects in order to receive a UX certificate. Please click the links for instructions for each project.

 

Please submit the following items on the project upload page:

  • Project Description: a simple summary explaining your approaches to the mini-projects. Only needs to be 1-2 sentences for each project.

  • Executive Summary PDF: this is one PDF combining all 3 mini-projects. If you created a website, this can be screenshots of the website. This is what future employers will look at.

  • Project Video: 1-5 min video introducing yourselves, your projects, and the type of roles you're looking for. This does not have to be a project summary the way the Data Science bootcamp video is. You can scroll through your website / executive summary to point to the project details, if you want, but no need to make it a formal presentation.

  • Supplemental Material URL (optional): If you made a website for your mini-projects, you can put it here.

  • GitHub (optional): If you created code for the project, you can put the GitHub link to the project repo here.

  • Project Slides PDF (optional): If you have an additional PDF, you can put it here. Make sure you make it clear that this is supplementary material, so the future employers don't miss your main findings (Executive Summary PDF).
