View Course Description

Ideation is the process of generating a lot of different ideas in a short amount of time. And in UX design, a broad set of ideas is more likely to lead to a more creative, more satisfactory solution for your users. In this installment of UX Design Techniques, Chris Nodder explores the variety of ideation techniques available, their benefits, and how ideation can help designers "think outside the box" when it comes to user experience.



Hello, I'm Chris Nodder. Welcome to the fourth episode of the UX Design Techniques Series. In this episode we'll discuss ideation techniques. That is, ways to find creative solutions to your interface issues. This is the fourth course in a series that describes a set of techniques you can use to make your development process more user centered. In this installment, I'll show you how to generate multiple creative ideas for fixing the user pain points you uncovered in earlier stages of the process.

Ideation is a technique that lets you explore lots of different design ideas in a very short space of time, drawing on the diverse ideas that each member of the team can bring to the table. Having a broad set of ideas to draw from makes it much more likely that you'll come up with a suitable solution. Now, it's time to dive in and learn about ideation techniques that you can use to unleash the creativity of your team and explore many potential ways forward for your product. So, let's get started.
