User Experience Track

It would be great to see a cohesive track for user experience / user interface design. I know there are a bunch of related classes already, but it would be nice to have a guided path.

This would make recommending Treehouse to aspiring designers a lot easier as it can be challenging to list all of the classes I believe they should take. This could pave the way for some new classes as well!

This course could cover Interaction Design, Usability Testing, Interface Design, Analytics, Competitive Research, Stakeholder Interviews, etc. Basically pulling a lot of the already terrific Business and Design classes and putting them in one track.

Keep up the great work!

Yeah I agree with that. Some of the course material covered in UX fundamentals was really good but there isn't much information about where to go from there.

Marketing - SEO (technical and content) - handling redirects and 404s is part of the user experience of a website, just as much as conducting content audits and all the other things you mentioned in your question.

Really getting some good use from Treehouse and it is an invaluable resource though.

I think additionally it should cover UX techniques like persona building, information architecture, and so on. The courses they already offer touch on over the shoulder testing, but discussing techniques like card sorts, or a treejack survey.
