Hey PH! We’re so excited to launch our UX Research Field Guide. It’s the guide I wish I had when I started working with user research, hopefully it helps others learn about and implement UX research practices. Please let us know if you have any feedback!

Great platform folks, so far on boarding looks nice and straight forward and I really like the field guide you have put together. I work in the pharma space so will be exploring what sort of participants you can get hold of there.

@erinhmay I'm very happy that email is not the only option, I much prefer reading it on your website. It's a great resource. I'm thinking that it would be easy to make it into an online course, because most of the material is already there.

@c10v32c1u6 Ah. Agree. The intent is for it to serve as a sort of customizable course, the emails just pace out the content (of your choosing), and point you back to the website. We’ve thought about launching it with a few additions and modifications as an ebook, or series of ebooks. Curious to get your thoughts on that, or otherwise of making an online course out of it.

@erinhmay An ebook could be great too. For an online course, I guess you'd just need to create exams (one per module), and then offer a certification at the end. You could have this as a free version of your MOOC, and then create additional content (eg: go deeper into each module) and sell that to your clients. What do you think?

@c10v32c1u6 Great ideas! I definitely think there's so much more we can do with this. Thanks so much for the dialogue here. I'll be sure to ping you when we launch further iterations of the Field Guide.
