Want to learn more about “User Experience” Design?

Take our 2 hour “Introduction to UX” with Noel Saw. We’ll cover a lot of the basics of what “UX” is and what it’s not. UX is a popular buzzword these days in the tech and startup world, but what does it really mean? And how does “UX” work?

Noel will review what “UX” means to many people and what the UX “process” entails from both a best practices “on paper” and real world perspective.

In this class, we’ll get an overview of the major disciplines & skillsets within “UX” including: User Research, Information Architecture, Wireframing/Interaction Design, Content Strategy, Usability Testing, and Visual Design.

During the class there will be at least one group exercise to help understand the basics of card sorting and optimizing content for usability.

Noel will provide an outline of the UX process using the same process used in projects. In other words, Noel will attempt to demonstrate the UX process “through the lens” of UX methodologies.


A basic understanding of web and/or print design or software development is highly recommended.
