About This Event

UX designers are in great demand these days. Why? What is UX design? Why is good UX design important? What skills are required of a good UX designer? There is much confusion about what good UX designers do and the roles they should play in organizations. This class aims to demystify UX design by giving a practical introduction to what good UX design and UX designers are all about.

Prepare to dip your toes into an ocean of new concepts that will broaden your understanding of UX design.
