The skills you learn can be applied to a range of contexts, including web and app design for desktop and mobile.
Live Online Classes:
Live online classes are a friendly and supportive alternative to watching video tutorials – you’re able to ask questions and receive answers from an experienced UX Design industry professional in real time. Your mentor will share their screen, demonstrating professional tools and techniques, then support you as you follow along, completing activities during class time.
Live classes are supported by an active class forum where your tutor provides additional information and feedback outside of class times. Classes are also recorded, so you can review them in your own time or log in to learn at a time that works best for you.
