All user stories are not created equal. They may follow the same format but there are two types of user stories for distinctly different purposes. You’ll learn both in this workshop. BONUS: You’ll also learn the value of high-fidelity user stories for marketing and sales – without changing a thing! Target audience – product managers, product owners and product designers.

Spot something you don’t quite get, or have an idea that could make our beta version better? Share it! You’re encouraged to loosen up and tell us how you really feel.
Are you interested in eye-tracking as a tool for answering UX questions? Are you intimidated by the learning curve involved? Don't despair! You can use eye-tracking qualitatively or quantitatively, and it doesn't have to be extremely time consuming or difficult. The complexity of eye-tracking depends largely on your research questions and the level of rigor in quantitative analysis that you apply. In this webinar, I will help demystify eye-tracking for UX, make a case for why you should consider adding it to your toolbox and offer lessons I learned as an eye-tracking noob.
This hands-on, Specialized Discipline course will provide you with a broader understanding User Experience. You will learn the benefits of good UX, methods and applicability, and the resources that are available to you.

You can do that by walking up to the whiteboard and drawing what people are talking about. By visually capturing the conversation in a public way, you will help all participants understand each other and come to agreement faster. But I can't draw, you say. Neither can I, and I’ve been successfully using this technique for 20 years. If you...
To make ideas happen, you must communicate with many stakeholders. Sketching alone or together is a great way to rapidly generate and give shape to your ideas.
Sketching is deceptively simple. It requires nothing more than a Sharpie and some paper. And yet, unless you’re a trained artist or chronic doodler, it can seem daunting. This workshop will teach you techniques that will enable you to visually represent your ideas so you can share them with others—and make them a reality!
