Class Project

Create an online portfolio of UX deliverables

Is your online portfolio outdated or, worse yet, something you just 'haven't gotten around to creating'? Whether you're a student looking for a first UX job or a seasoned UX professional, you've probably experienced the struggle of maintaining an engaging and up-to-date online portfolio.

In the class we'll review the tools that can facilitate maintaining an online portfolio, as well as the fine art of choosing and/or creating the deliverables to include. 

We'll address some of the key questions around portfolio creation, including:

  • Should I design a custom portfolio or use a hosted solution? 
  • Do I need my employer's or client's permission to share deliverables?
  • What if I work on internal apps or under Non-disclosures?
  • What if my work is research-oriented?
  • What if I'm still in school or just starting out? 

To answer these questions, I draw on my own experience, and share the advice of UX managers and professionals.  The main goal is to get your hands dirty putting together a portfolio you won't be afraid to share with potential clients or employers. 

We will end with posting your portfolio to the project gallery for review.

      Classes revolve around completing a project and collaborating with fellow students to give and get feedback on your work. Use Video Lessons and the Project Guide designed by your teacher to complete your class project.

    • Do teachers give project feedback?

      Teachers design and present all class content, but Skillshare is community based around student-to-student interaction. You'll be surprised at what you learn from your classmates!

    • When does a class end?

      Never! Once enrolled, you have lifetime access to class materials. That means you can learn when and where you want. Learn at your own pace.
