About This Class

UX Design Fundamentals gives you everything you need to know about creating apps, sites and systems that are useful, usable and valuable!

Most instruction available to people who want to learn more or start a career in UX is, well...wrong. Typically, these courses or programs focus on disparate, narrow parts of a design/development process. the problem is that UX isn’t part of any process: UX IS the process.

Great User Experience only happens when you look beyond what happens on the screen, beyond trends and technology and far beyond what people say they want or need. UX Design Fundamentals shows you where to look, how to make sense of what you find, and what to do with it.

Everything you need to know about UX — from theory to methods to how UX really works in the real world — is here. I've cut out all the buzzwords and the jargon and tech-speak in favor of clear, simple instruction in equally clear, simple language.

For a fraction of my hourly consulting rate, you get 12 hours of my time and 26 years of my expertise. This is the same instruction I give to Design & Development teams working for Fortune 500 & 100 organizations, along with over 43,000 students worldwide to date. Here's what some of them have to say about the course:

  • "I feel like i’m learning more in Joe’s course than in all 4 years of college!”
    - Paolo Orione
  • “A fantastic introduction to UX. Joe does a great job breaking each section down into easily digestible parts, coupled with real-life examples that make it easier to understand and apply.”
    - Dudley John Fournier III
  • “Pure excellence. I’m sharing this knowledge with my team in order to get our product to the high level of quality we’ve been reaching for.” 
    - Ryan Samson
  • “This was a real eye-opener for me! I found my knowledge of user experience design didn’t even scratch the surface of what Joe covers.” 
    - Carol
  • “Tremendous content; detailed and explained. more information than I ever expected, well planned, great delivery. Joe’s style is easy to listen to, and he makes complex and multi-layered subjects easy to understand. many real life examples for discussion. take this course!” 
    - Theresa Andre

I promise you that by the time we're done here, you will have a solid working knowledge of UX in both principle and practice, and you'll be able to apply what you've learned to anything and everything you design and build. And I am always available for any questions you may have.

I'm thrilled you're here. Let's get started!

Coaching & Training for UX Designers & Developers

Teacher

I've been helping Fortune 500 & 100 organizations train Product Design, Development and UX Teams from the ground up for 29+ years.

I've shown them how to incorporate real-world UX and design best practices into their work, without reinventing or disrupting what they do every day.

I speak at conferences, delivering keynotes, lectures and workshops, all over the world.

I've launched seven successful online courses, with more than 140,000 students (yes, that’s a real number).

My students tell me those courses and workshops are valuable because I deal with the reality of working in the messy corporate world — instead of the UX fantasy land far too many authors and so-called "experts" describe in their speeches, articles and courses.
