Ideation is the process of generating a lot of different ideas in a short amount of time. And in UX design, a broad set of ideas is more likely to lead to a more creative, more satisfactory solution for your users. In this short Lynda.com course, I describe the variety of ideation techniques available, their benefits, and how ideation can help designers "think outside the box" when it comes to user experience.
Here's a video from the course. Check out the full course online.
