Success stories

When it comes to understanding design principles, I’ve always been able to learn better through small side projects.

At ownpath, I was able to do just that. I had the freedom of choosing what to learn and how I wanted to learn it.

I was introduced to some really experienced individuals in the design community who mentored me in their areas of expertise.

I recommend any aspiring designer to give this a shot.

FAQ

Why shouldn't I just use MOOCs?

MOOCs and ownpath solve different problems. MOOCs help with accessing high quality educational resources from some of the best universities and companies.

But, a MOOC isn’t sufficient to keep most of us motivated. Besides, how does one know how well they’ve understood something or how well they’re applying what they’ve learned?

ownpath is designed to help you learn by doing. We’ll not stop at the theory. We’ll establish a practice routine through which you can get direct feedback and guidance on your work from industry professionals.

Will I get a certificate?

We do not provide certificates at the moment. We do however strive to help you with something that is, in our view, far more valuable. Namely, concrete experience and industry connections.

Through assignments and projects, you’ll actually learn how to apply concepts and develop real-world experience; stuff you can feature on your portfolio.

Finally, by working with experienced professionals on ownpath, you’ll develop valuable connections that can unlock doors which would be much harder otherwise.

How about an existing personal mentoring service?

Existing mentoring services seem to have a very limited selection of topics. Also, they tend to cost about ~$500/month, very expensive for most people.

ownpath strives to be an accessible and affordable alternative to higher education. We intend to be inclusive of far more topics than design or data science. We believe that a lot of real world problems are interdisciplinary, and hence require diverse perspectives.

We also want to help you not just learn a specific skill such as design or machine learning, but the surrounding skillset too. Skills such as being able to communicate your ideas well and collaborating well with others, are necessary to be great at almost any job.

What if I don't like the experience at ownpath?

We’ll be heartbroken and we’ll do our best to address the concerns you may have.

If you’d like to drop out of a programme after one session, you can avail a full refund.
