Course Overview

The 2 day certified User Experience Design UXD course explores designing a website or application to attract the intended target g audiences and user groups. By learning this skill, we will help you understand users’ problems and ways to address them, integrate visual aspects with application goals, gain effective testing techniques, and more.

UXD studies and evaluates how users feel about the product, looking at such things as ease of use, aesthetics, perception of the system’s value, utility, or efficiency.

UX designers explore and test out various approaches to solving specific user problems.

The broad responsibility of a UX designer is to ensure that the product logically flows from one step to the next. They also constantly develop software to keep up with technological advancements and increase user satisfaction.

This course will teach you to create well-crafted, easy-to-use websites that encourage users to return.
