We will go through the Skillshare site, tearing apart its sign up flow, class posting process, and anything else that we find worthy of learning from or learning how to avoid.
The class involves literally firing up your browser, going to Skillshare.com, and picking out every element and interaction that comprises the UX. We'll use this experience as a case study for evaluating product design and being your own harshest critic.
Before you arrive, be sure to check out the Skillshare site and have some thoughts to contribute about what they get right and what they get wrong!
I'm a product manager at Yammer. I have started two companies: one that created a lot of social value and one that crashed and burned. I studied computer science and sociology, so I have a formal grasp of the intersection of technology and human behavior.
