Exploring User Experience Design

August 1, 2018

Live Online Event

User Experience Design (UX) has the ability to make the things we create better fit the needs of the people we're designing them for. In L&D, it can help us craft content and experiences that are more effective at solving the issues we're trying to address—and in a way our audience finds enjoyable and useful.

In the Exploring User Experience Design Spotlight, you'll discover practical ways to use approaches from the UX field in your own work. You'll look at the specific techniques that can help you analyze and empathize with your audience and discuss strategies for designing and testing solutions based on that information. These sessions will also help you build a business case for why putting your users first can lead to better outcomes in the end.
