UI/UX Design

User eXperience Design (UXD) is the process of enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty by improving the usability, ease of use, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the customer and the product within the consumption environment.

The User eXperience (UX) course imparts how to design usable, useful, and desirable digital interfaces (e.g., websites, mobile/tablet apps, etc.) from a user-centered perspective. While UX is a field in its own right, UX skills are becoming increasingly important.

Drawing from the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) discipline, UXD methods help delegates to understand users
and their contexts.

FE Designer and Engineer

Are your web conversion rates low? Do you know whether your web site is effective at meeting your goals? Do users get "stuck" and aren't able to complete the tasks they want to? Are your forms effective? How can your mobile app be improved?

It's becoming easier and easier to create web sites and mobile apps, but harder and harder to measure the effectiveness of these applications. In Jide's well-designed course, you will learn how to create effective web sites, mobile sites and mobile applications that encourage conversions
and leave users wanting more.

It's not enough to simply have a web presence! You must have a web presence that's effective to be successful. In this dynamic course Jide will guide you through the critical elements of user experience which include; strategy, scope, structure, skeleton and surface. As you learn, you will be able to apply the knowledge in dynamic lab exercises and later to your own work as a developer or designer.

If you're a designer moving into a more complex digital world or a developer who has to occasionally function as a designer as well, this course is for you. You'll feel more confident as you make design related decisions about layout, color, information, design and typography after completing this exciting course.

If you have no design experience and you just want to test your creativity, this course is for you as well.
