UX as a field and a career is continuously growing and there are many people showing interest in the field. At times it becomes difficult to get a clear picture and many struggle in finding the right place to start. Internet is filled with articles and videos covering all aspects of UX Design. Many institutions offer certifications and there are plenty of paid online courses. In Youtube we can find many channels dedicated to UX. But, how do we pick courses that are informative and useful enough while being affordable. For those who plan to take UX as a profession after college or those who decide to switch their career, a brief understanding about the field beforehand without spending much money will be really helpful.
