Why Do Learners Love This Course?

The User Interface Designer Course gave me an even better insight into Web Design and User Experience that I didn't know before. The course used different learning techniques (Videos, Reading, Flashcards, Quizzes, etc.). My favorite part of the tool was having "pop-quizzes" at the end of each learning subject to make sure I understood what was just read. I would rate this course 5 out of 5 stars.
