UX Courses

With our online UX courses, which generally take up a few half days, we aim to give you a similar experience and access to experts that you would have in an in-person UX design workshop.

Jump to all upcoming UX design courses ↓

With our online UX courses however, you can take them from your own desk or couch, and can do it either live (real-time) or watch the video course at your own leisure, as all video recordings are included.

Practical and interactive courses

Our online courses have a lot of practical ux design examples and interactive exercises. If you are watching live, you can ask questions during Q&A, and of course you can use the online course recordings and materials to study UX design at your own pace, at your own time.

Wide range of UX design topics

We offer many online UX design courses at various levels, covering a wide range of UX design topics, such as Interface Design Patterns, Psychology for UX, Design Systems and many more. Please check our upcoming (live) courses, and see what UX design courses we have offered in the past, if you want to be notified of new live offerings.

SmashingConf Online Workshops

Blown away by all the knowledge I've soaked in from @rachelandrew's online CSS layout masterclass. Incredible how much you can learn about a thing you thought you already knew just by hearing it explained again. Thanks for organising this @smashingconf #smashingconf ✨

    Designing Search UX In 2024

    with Vitaly Friedman

    Free Workshop, 2h + Q&A Thu, February 29 2024
    09:00 – 11:30 AM PT 18:00 – 20:30 CET Check your time zone ⏰

    In many products, search is critical, yet too often it’s forgotten or overlooked. Many users heavily rely on search, and investing time and effort into good search is usually a very good investment. So how do people search and what do they expect from a first-class search experience in 2024? And what can we, as designers, do to design better experiences for them?

    In this free session, we’ll explore how to do just that — how to design better autocomplete, how to deal with complex filters and improve sorting, how to design better search results pages and improve the experience for power users.

    Roll up your sleeves: expect plenty of real-life examples, do’s, don’ts and a healthy dose of “Aha!”-moments. Beware: you might never forget what you’ll learn in this session!

    Accessibility for Designers

    with Stéphanie Walter

    Workshop, 4×2h + Q&A Mon & Wed, June 3–12 2024
    9:30 AM – 12:00 PM PT 18:30 – 21:00 CET Check your time zone

    In the early stages of product development, accessibility considerations are frequently ignored. Accessibility is mistakenly considered a problem to be resolved down the line, often put on the shoulder of the development team.

    But accessibility is the responsibility of the whole team. Including designers. And a lot of accessibility issues can be already foreseen and prevented during the design phase. As designers, you hold the power to shape product roadmaps by including accessibility best practices in your designs and advocating for accessibility features.

    This practical workshop is designed to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills to design products that are accessible and user-friendly.

    Nobody wakes up in the morning hoping to finally create a new account that day. Just because nobody loves filling in web forms: they don’t have a decent reputation, and rightfully so.

    Very often they are inaccessible and difficult to use, with awkward live validation and notorious error messages; not to mention a birthday date-picker starting from 2021, a tiny newsletter checkbox, disabled “submit” buttons and horrendously evil CAPTCHAs in the disguise of street signs and crosswalks. So let’s fix web forms for good!
