User Experience, or UX, is an exciting field. It's essentially about empowering people to do the things they want to do, which is both fun and gratifying. And, having a great user experience drives business success.
Learning UX, however, can be a challenge. Since it's a relatively young field, there's no real gold standard yet for how things are practiced, or taught, which can frustrate people who are just trying to learn things the right way, in order to apply UX immediately to what they're doing, as well as students looking to become practitioners.
I created this course because I believe your time is precious, and you shouldn't have to hunt around to get a practical foundation in UX. Or watch 24 hours of videos. This course takes you through the key concepts and steps of UX, as they would occur across a real-world project, so you gain a complete understanding of how to practice UX - from Research, to Strategy, to Design. And the confidence that comes with these new skills.
There's a fair bit of material to share, but the content is mostly short, entertaining, to-the-point videos, followed by assignments where you'll apply what you're learning so it sinks in. And, I'm confident you'll like this material because I've already taught it to Thousands of professionals and university students who have enjoyed and benefited from it.
Whether you need to effectively learn UX and apply it immediately, or you're looking to supplement your skillset, or you're just curious about entering this fun and lucrative field, this course is designed for you
After taking the course you'll possess a powerful understanding of UX and the key activities related to the field. You'll also be able to take that knowledge, and put it to use to make better work and advance your career! (And, you'll have some great portfolio pieces if you complete the assignments!)
See you in class!
