Course Description

User Experience (UX) used to be a term that was largely associated with designers. Today, UX has gone beyond design and extended its reach into building quality experiences for customers. When used correctly, UX best practices can optimise almost every aspect of a business – it’s a vital aspect of fulfilling a business’s objectives.

By the end of the course, you will be able to incorporate UX concepts into your marketing strategy and design implementations. You will learn some of the key UX factors that you should be focused on, as well as essential tools UX Designers use to optimise designs, conversion rates, and much more, to create meaningful experiences on their digital platforms and products.

Target Audience

Marketing professionals, Marketing Strategists, Content developers, Creatives, or Business Operations Professionals who are required to understand how User Experience (UX) thinking can be used to shape their business and marketing strategy and implementations, as well as how to better collaborate with designers to deliver a superb user experience to garner maximum outputs

Course Highlights

The bridge between UX and Marketing is a firm understanding of the consumer– it is important to know how they act, what they like, and most importantly, what drives them to make a purchase.

Another connecting thread between UX design and Marketing is creating desire in consumers through psychological principles. Marketing aims to make products desirable to customers so that they’ll spend money to purchase the product, and UX design aims to make products desirable to users, so that they’ll have a great experience while using it.

FAQs

Questions? Check out the frequently asked questions below.

What is the difference between the online classroom and face-to-face traditional classroom?

Typically, in a traditional classroom, classes are conducted with 1 trainer to 20 – 24 learners in a cluster or classroom seating format. Group discussions, group presentations, lectures, peer-to-peer coaching are all conducted face-to-face (in-person).

In an online-based classroom, lessons will be delivered via a video conferencing software, Zoom. Lectures will be conducted via screensharing, while group discussions and group brainstorming will be conducted via “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to split up discussions into smaller groups.

Both learning modes essentially offer the same course content and learning outcomes.

Read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide for a more detailed comparison on both formats.

Is 2 days sufficient to meet the learning objectives?
Equinet Academy’s courses are designed to provide bite-sized yet comprehensive information to be delivered within 1-3 days. The courses not only include theory but also hands-on practical experience so that trainees can take away applicable knowledge.

If you feel that you have not met the learning objectives at the end of the course, you are always welcomed to resit the course online without any cost on your end. You will also have lifetime access to the courseware online which you may review, and post-training clinic sessions to address your challenges with a subject matter expert.

If I have specific questions relating to my User Interface and User Experience Design work after the course, can I consult the trainer?

Yes, you may most certainly book unlimited complimentary 3-hour small group clinic sessions with a subject matter expert for up to 3 years to clarify your doubts or address any challenges you may be facing. The links to book your clinic sessions will be emailed to you after your course.

Do I have to prepare anything before attending the course?
For in-person training, do bring along a laptop. You also have the option to loan a laptop from us for the duration of the course. You may also want to bring along a jacket in case the room gets cold.

For online classes, do ensure you have a functional laptop and have Zoom installed prior to class. For more details, you may read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide.

Are there any other prerequisites/ criteria I need to meet in order to attend this course?

You are required to have basic computer navigational skills such as opening and closing, dragging and dropping, copying and pasting of files.
