It is an intensive six weeks program designed for busy people (and by busy people) interested in learning User Experience Design. Twelve classes 7-9 PM, hands-on and project-driven, Demo Day at the end of the program.
Trainers are professionals working in the tech industry and the authors of course materials.
The students get access to all the materials as well as collaborative documentation and design workspace online. It enables students to review, refresh, move at their own pace between the classes. We found the combination of offline and online learning the most efficient.
A glance of what inside:
Each class is only14 students. Students are working in small groups during the classes and individually on personal projects. We work with each student to ensure individual progress. This is why our classes work well for both seasoned design professionals and people who never done any design prior to the course — a student working on a unique personal project.
We do not require any prior experience in graphical design. We do require a genuine interest in solving problems with good design.
We provide Figma as a primary design tool and Notion for all the course materials and workbooks. By the end of our program students master both. Tools are provided in at professional subscription level free of charge for the duration of the course.
The UXD Course is a minimum valuable set of concepts and know-how to help you kick-start practice of human-centric design for digital products. Within six weeks, you will get hands-on experience in UX Research, journey mapping, prototyping, usability testing, UI Design, design systems. You will choose a project and develop it from scratch to a level that is good for a portfolio or for the next stage of development.
We do talk about in-depth fundamental topics during the course.
