UX & Web Design Master Course: Strategy, Design, Development

Students: 89812, Price:  Paid

This course will teach you everything you need to know about UX, including design, content, and coding. And you'll learn from the ground up, so it doesn't matter how much experience you have when you start.

You'll be exposed to principles and strategies, but, more importantly, you'll learn how to actually apply these abstract concepts by coding three different websites for three very different audiences.

Improve Your Website with UX Strategies

  • Apply UX strategies to a site's content & design

  • Understand Information Architecture to enhance the content on your website

  • Know what dictates how your website should look

  • Design and code a B2B website, a B2C blog, and an ecommerce site

Understand UX and Learn How to Develop Winning Websites

This course will help you stand out as a web designer, teaching you how to apply User Experience (UX) strategies that will make every site you build useful, usable, and valuable.

Reinforce what you're learning using the bonus 30-page downloadable UX Guidebook. Filled with exercises and activities, the UX Guidebook is a great tool to reference as you progress through the course, or while developing your own custom sites.

You'll also get hands-on experience designing and coding three different types of sites. This will give you the confidence to pursue similar projects if you're already a website designer, if you want to get into web design, or if you want to enhance your current business site.

Contents and Overview

Even if you're a complete beginner, this course will show you how to make a website functional, attractive and successful. It will walk you through all of the steps required to enhance the User Experience on any site, right down to the code, content, and design.

You'll begin by defining who your website users are and what they expect from the website. You'll also learn how business goals — yours or your client's — have to be uncovered and addressed for site success.

You'll learn what questions to ask both groups, and you'll use the answers to inform your content and design decisions.

Next, you'll dig into Information Architecture (IA), which looks at the content on your website, how you should categorize it, what you should call it, and more.

This will lay the foundation on which you can further build out your website to make users flock to it, stay on it, and hopefully make purchases.

Plus, you'll tackle how to design your website depending upon who your visitors are, whether your website is B2B (business-to-business), B2C (business-to-consumer), or an ecommerce site for selling products online.

Different audiences have different needs, so learning what your target user expects from your site means you'll be able to design and build a site that meets those expectations and leads to greater conversions.

In addition to knowing what you need to put into your website to make it stand out from the crowd, you'll also learn how to identify and remove UX- and UI-related obstacles.

The ability to see and solve these problems will ensure every website you build moving forward will be useful, usable and valuable to the people who use it.

Most importantly, you'll then learn how to actually build and code these types of sites using HTML, CSS, WordPress, and more.

You'll not only know how to effectively design B2B, B2C, and ecommerce sites, but you'll also know exactly how to develop these sites, from start to finish.

By the end of this course, you'll have an in-depth understanding of UX and web design, as well as the tools to develop a variety of sites with the right code.

You'll know why UX is so important to both users and businesses, what content is needed on a site, what UI design is appropriate, and how to transform your vision into a fully functional website using the most effective tools available.

UPDATE: New Section! (Section 2)

  1. Just added a new section where we go over the most modern design and prototyping tools.
  2. We discuss design tools like Sketch 3, Photoshop, and Illustrator, so you can decide what to use.
  3. Overview of static prototyping tools like Marvel App and Invision
  4. Overview of granular animation prototyping tools like Pixate, Flinto, FramerJS
  5. We create a simple design flow using Sketch!
  6. We put our prototype on Marvel

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Overview

A quick and practical course on turning your whiteboard or paper sketches into mobile prototypes. Learn to use animations and transitions to convert your static designs into easy-to-understand user flows, products, or features.

You don't need design skills, software knowledge, or even know how to draw. All you need is some paper, a pen, and an idea—a story waiting to be told.

5 reasons you should take this course

  • Prototyping is powerful. It helps an idea explain itself by letting users play with it.
  • Drawing is quick and simple. Sometimes boxes, lines, and circles are all you need to describe a product.
  • You'll have fun taking it. This course is designed for you to finish it as fast as possible and enjoy the ride.
  • You'll impress your colleagues. We all want to express ourselves, this course will empower your communication skills.
  • It's free and it doesn't suck! Seriously, I took some effort to cut what you don't need and just keep the juicy stuff ;)

So, is this the right course for you?

  • The goal of this course is to teach you how to convert your sketches, either on a whiteboard or on paper into a quick and dirty prototype on your phone.
  • I built this course for engineers, designers, product managers, or anyone interested in expressing an idea.
  • This is for creators that are in the early stages of building an app or feature—teams that want to explore ideas quickly or try different approaches to the same problem
  • This is for people that want to test their concept and show it to potential users

Who am I?

I've worked as a designer for the last 15 years. Now I'm focused on designing web and mobile products, but even with all that experience, sometimes explaining a concept with simple wireframes can be a challenge. Prototyping has helped me bridge that communication gap.

What this course does NOT cover

This course does not go into detail about usability or other UX issues. I think it's obvious by now, but this course will not teach you how to code. Remember, this is for people that are in the early stages of building a product or feature.

If you want to know a bit more about mobile UX or if you want to design a high fidelity UI, then I recommend you take my other course "Design and prototype an iOS Mobile App on Illustrator"

What do you need?

  • For this course, you only need a marker and a whiteboard, or a pencil and paper
  • A smart phone. Either an Android device or an iPhone.
  • Downloading the free Marvel App

This course is quick and practical, and my goal is for you to have fun finishing it. Prototyping has made a huge impact in my work. It's powerful. I'm sure it will help you too.

So, are you ready to start? Let's do it!
HAPPY PROTOTYPING :)

  • Improved black-and-white conversions

  • Special effects and edits to offer as a bonus to your clients

These are methods you can use to improve your own photos for fun, or you can apply them to photos in your portfolio to attract more clients. Add excitement and interest to engagement photos, wedding photos, professional and executive photos, maternity photos, and all the other various categories of portrait photos. 

This course will not just help you retouch photos that you’re already taking for a client. It also has the potential to help you land more customers, and add more photo enhancing services to your business.   

Enrollment in this course includes access to hours of follow-along lectures where students “learn by doing.” 

Signing up for the course also includes 

  • Access to the discussion forums (for discussion and posting links to your portrait photos that you’ve been working on so fellow students and I can critique and give feedback!)

  • Access to all future lectures that are added to this course (that may be a result of questions from the discussions forums) or new techniques related to portrait photography

  • Free support files to follow along in the lectures (most of the lectures feature the same photos available for download, but students are free to use their own photos of course)

  • Besides six hours of lectures, I also include quizzes to assess your learning, and some helpful handouts on file formats, color terminology, Photoshop keyboard shortcuts, and a portrait retouching checklist.

Hi there, my name is Dan Scott. I am an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) for Photoshop. 

Are you struggling to learn Photoshop on your own? This course will allow you to use Photoshop professionally. You will be able to add Photoshop to your CV & start getting paid for your Photoshop skills.

In this course I will teach you everything you need to know about getting started with Photoshop. You'll learn how to use Photoshop for use in Graphic Design & for Photoshop Retouching. You will create lots of your own projects that you can add to your own portfolio to help your employment.

  • David: "AMAZING course Dan! Thank you so much for sharing your skills with us!! Your teaching style is very professional and easy to understand. I feel comfortable with the skill set you've given me to handle small projects now. I've already purchased your Advanced Training Course in Photoshop and can't wait to dive in!! Thanks again!

This course is for beginners. You do not need any previous knowledge of Photoshop, photography or design. We will start right at the beginning and work our way through step by step. 

You will learn the Photoshop 'secret sauce' whereby we will magically enhance our background and when necessary completely remove people from images.

There are exercise files available to download so that you can follow along with me in the videos. There are lots of assignments I will set so that you can practice the skills you have learned. 

  • Simon: "I just finished the Adobe Photoshop Essentials Training Course and I want to say I totally loved it! For me, a person who had zero experience in using Photoshop this course was very helpful to get into the graphic design area with a lot of interest and fun. This course is very good structured - from easy to hard topics. Also it has a lot of detailed explanations and really fun practical tasks. I've got all I needed for starting to work on my own first graphic design projects. And again, Daniel is just a great teacher! His teaching style is awesome and I am really glad I picked his courses for learning my new profession. With Daniel it's really fun and interesting journey."

If you have never opened Photoshop before or you have already opened Photoshop and are struggling with the basics, follow me and together we will learn how to make beautiful images using Photoshop.

Wordpress for Beginners - A Complete Guide to Wordpress!

In 2020, it's never been easier to build a fantastic, responsive website that looks great on computers, tablets, and mobile phones.  

You can learn Wordpress WITHOUT having to buy web hosting or a domain name.  I'll show you how you can set it all up on your own computer using free tools. 

NOTE: This course will always be updated to cover the latest version of WordPress.  Covers WordPress 5.0 and earlier.

The primary goal of this course is to teach anyone, even a complete beginner, how to become a Wordpress guru in a few short hours, without lots of technical jargon.  I'll guarantee that after taking this course you'll have the knowledge you need to build a responsive, beautiful website with the latest version of Wordpress.  Not only will you know more than 99% of Wordpress users out there, but you'll actually enjoy using Wordpress too. 

This course is taught by Wordpress author and teacher, Dr. Andy Williams, who has over a decade of experience using and teaching Wordpress to people of all skill levels.

About the Course

This course will guide you through every single step from installation to finished website.  I'll show you how you can install Wordpress on your own computer for free, so you don't have to pay for a domain name or hosting fees while you complete this course.  Once you've got Wordpress installed on your computer, you will learn how to build and run a successful, beautiful, responsive-design website you can be proud of. 

After taking you through all of the main options in Wordpress, explaining what each one does and how you set it up, I'll let you watch over my shoulder as I build a Wordpress website.  It will be an affiliate site that I hope will make me passive income for many years to come.  Go and check out the free preview tutorials in Section 13. 

 Who is this Wordpress course for? 

Have you ever wanted to build a professional looking website, but didn't know where to start?  Now you can.  Wordpress for Beginners is a complete course for anyone, no matter what your technical ability.  This course assumes no prior knowledge!  

At the start of the course, I'll walk you through setting up Wordpress on your own computer so that you don't need to pay for a web host (or a domain name) while you master wordpress.  When you decide you want to put a website online, you can then watch over-my-shoulder as I buy a domain name and hosting, and install Wordpress online.

Whether you decide to host your site on your own computer, or at a web host, you'll be ready to start mastering Wordpress.  We'll start at the very beginning by logging in to have a look around to familiarize ourselves with the main areas of the Dashboard.

Once you are happy navigating around your new tools, we'll go through the main features you will need as you create your site, including: 

  1. The WYSIWYG Editor.  This is where you enter all of your website content.

  2. The Media Library, to manage your images, videos, sound files and other media you want to share on your site.

  3. Wordpress Settings, and I'll take you step by step to set those up just right.

  4. We'll look at the differences between Wordpress posts and pages, and I'll give you a simple way of knowing which one to use on any occasion.

  5. We'll look at post excerpts, categories and tags, and how to use them on a well-structured site to maximize visitor experience and search engine ranking benefits.

  6. You'll see the two main ways you can set your homepage up.

  7. We'll create a contact form on the site so visitors can get in touch.

  8. We'll setup an About us page, and I'll explain why this page is important and what information to include on it.

  9. We'll cover the legal pages you need.

  10. We'll discuss the navigation system on your site, and how you can set up customized navigation in the header, sidebar or footer of your site.  We'll also talk about internal site linking.

  11. We'll cover Wordpress security, and set up a system that will keep the site safe from hackers.

  12. We'll check out some great free plugins.

  13. Finally, I'll give you a 20 step plan for creating your site. 

By the end of this course, you will have a website that you are truly proud of. 

Just of few of the many Student Reviews

  • This is a fabulous course, and I would it give it six stars if such a rating were available! Everything is very clearly explained, and Andy promptly answers any question you might have. If you are interested in using and learning WordPress, you owe it to yourself to take this outstanding course. Robert Weiser

  • Lectures are well-structured with lots of details given. The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and communicates very effectively. I've been able to set up my first website based on what I've learned here. A definite plus is that questions posted via the course are answered quickly! Susan Worms

  • I love this course. I have spent a few hours today and I have already learned so much. Really excited about the potential for when I am done. Great Course! A. Luis Acosta

  • I learned a lot more than how to use WordPress in basic terms. Andrew shares a lot of insider knowledge and tips that would take you countless hours of doing your own research to learn...and answering questions you may not have thought to ask. Couldn't have asked for a better course to help me jumpstart into WordPress. Nathaniel Stephens

  • What a fantastic share of knowledge. I really appreciated and loved how a "real" site was used for the lectures, real world examples of everything. I would definitely take this course - highly recommended! Glen Schafer

  • This course is perfect for people who want to start a blog or info page with wordpress. He covers all the basics and sometimes goes even a little deeper, to give you an idea what to look for. The provided documents are gold and very helpfull. I can't wait to go public with my site. Thank you for the great lecturesAndreas Lackmann

  • I really wish I had access to a course such as this four years ago when I first started dabbling with Wordpress as a hobby in my retirement. The learning process at the time, for a non-techy like me, was painstaking. Andy's course was the ideal step-by-step teaching method. I'm now much more confident about starting a new affiliate marketing website. Leon

  • Well delivered, well structured. Easy to follow and logical. Developed my own website in parallel with the course, and had it up and running within two weeks of starting. Looking forward to undertaking a couple of the course developers other courses now. Highly recommended. Steve Laing

  • Excellent instructor. Andy is great. He used visuals for everything he say. I was able to pause him and go to my site and test my understanding in all areas that I did know. The results and excitement are fantastic. Esau Khan

  • A fantastic course. Thank you Andy. This is a great course and it has helped me start to build my own WordPress website. I was very impressed when I had a problem with viewing my site that you took time to check for me. That shows what a great teacher you are. I have booked up another course by to and can't wait for more. Once again. Thank you. B Brown

  • Many of the courses I've been through related to learning Wordpress are either too complicated or the author doesn't spend enough time explaining concepts so that you can understand what's being said. Andy strikes a nice balance with this course in that all the modules are broken up into easily digestible pieces. I like that he takes enough time to explain each new concept or module without being repetitive or using jargon that's difficult to follow. I also love being able to follow along with Andy as he explains each new module as well (as opposed to just talking off of slides all the time). He literally walks you through everything, so it's like you're right there looking over his shoulder. For anyone wanting to understand all the fundamentals of Wordpress, I think you'll absolutely love this course. It will save you tons of time by having all this information in one place. And you'll even learn some additional features like setting up affiliate links (not that everyone needs to know this but I like that Andy included it so it's there if you ever want to know). Truly a fantastic course! Lance Gross

  • Superb Course - Extraordinary Instructor!! Andy's Wordpress for Beginners-Master Wordpress Quicky course is by far the best Wordpress course I've seen. And I definitely wouldn't say it's just for beginners. I'm not a beginner - I thought I knew Wordpress pretty well, but I learned SO MUCH MORE from this course! I've always had a lot of questions about the many settings and various options in Wordpress and most courses just skip over them or tell you to check this box and move on with no explanation. I never really got my questions answered until now. Andy is very detailed in his instruction. He walks you through step by step and tells you what each setting or section is for, how it is used (or not used) and why. I got more out of Andy's course than any other course I've ever taken. He has an extensive teaching background and it is evident in his clearly produced videos. After taking this course, you'll find your confidence level will soar. Carol

Welcome to the fourth course as part of the series "MBA in Creative Arts, Design and Animation".

This incredible artificial intelligence video creation course 2021 will cover the tools called Biteable and Lumen5 which are the world's simplest video makers offering hundreds of free animated, live-action, or photo scenes in lots of different styles made by top designers.

Artificial Intelligence and Its Advancement in Video Creation in 2021.

Let's delve down further into the use of AI technology. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now involved in the creation of smart video and has also been able to influence businesses. Users can now film and edit videos through Artificial Intelligence. It also brings many job opportunities in the field. Due to its ability to sense, reason, act and adapt, AI has suddenly become one of the most important technologies and the most in-demand tool for the video creation market; and also due to the popularity of automation in different business practices. Several companies have invested in keeping video production as their main target in Artificial Intelligence. Examples include AI implementation and deployment through multiple video distribution channels such as Netflix and YouTube. These companies have invested in AI just to make it more exciting and innovative to watch videos. Many aspects of the production and editing process of videos have been handled by artificial intelligence. Its innovation is also a blessing for production teams and video editors. It helps practitioners to concentrate more on creative aspects instead of editing which is perceived by many to be a very dull and repetitive job.

Did you also know this fact?

Most aspects of the production and distribution system are managed by artificial intelligence. It can now record, edit, pick and distribute online videos. Artificial intelligence has allowed automated video editing in 2021. A camera can now operate on its own without human instructions. Ok, so what does this Artificial Intelligence in Video Creation course cover? Let's look into this further. Here is the ultimate question.

Why learn this mind-blowing course and how this can be a differentiator when it comes to AI video creation?

With Biteable, you can convert any plain infographic into fun slides that will not only explain and pass the information but also make the content more understandable. This course can change your life as a video creator.

Biteable is the god of video creation to aid you to create videos in minutes. Lumen5 whereas is an Artificial Intelligence Video Creation Tool that allows you to turn your blog posts, articles into engaging videos to post on social media platforms. 

This course will save you tons of time when it comes to creating videos without using any expensive video creation software. The output videos generated will be so powerful that it would create a huge impact on your business. This is highly beneficial to any business and you will realize this inside the course. If you learn how to work on a PowerPoint presentation, you can work on Biteable and Lumen5. An 8th grader can do it.

The question is "Are you ready to get into the video-making action, right now?"

2021 seems to be a great and amazing year to take your video creation efforts to great heights of success.

Creating 3D environments in Blender

This course helps you creating wonderful environment scenes, organizing your workflow, and find the right inspiration.

Creating 3D environments in Blender

After four years, the creating 3D environments course, is now finally here for Blender 2.81. Thousands of students participated in the first version of this course and there were a lot of requests for a follow-up course. Prepare for a new chapter in the world of 3D environments!

The profession continues

For centuries, making environments has been something that many artists do to impress other people. Since the advent of computer graphics there is a new wave of designers studying this lovely profession. This course reveals some fundamental lessons from the old painting masters. Use the course to get the max out Blender and learn to create high quality 3D environments.

Starting from scratch

The complexity of many scenes is often holding people back from creating environmental scenes in 3D. Most designers drop-out halfway and are then facing their unfinished work because it takes a lot of time and work to create scenes with architecture and nature. I faced this many times, but because I was so inspired by medieval architecture, I took the time to learn how to create 3D environments in a way in which I could express myself. During this process I struggled hard and made many unnecessary choices that slowed down my progression. The power of this course is that it shows you exactly what you need to design 3D environments and which details you might want to avoid or postpone in order to make the most out of your own progression.

The road to perfection

We all want to create beautiful scenes, but making these scenes can be a big challenge. This course is not only a technical education, it also covers topics like focus, inspiration and organization. I believe that a well-organized focused designer, with the right inspiration, will be able to make every 3D dream come to life. This course is well documented and guides you through the process of creating 3D scenes in Blender 2.81.

From ruin to castle

This course will guide you through the new Blender 2.81 interface. Together we make our first steps in Blender. Slowly we start building objects and after one chapter you will be able to make a small dice scene. This warming-up is needed to get used to the workflow and make you comfortable with Blender and the things that will come. Shortly after that, we will jump into the node editor. We will start mixing textures, just like the old painting masters, to get decent looking results. We will apply the material on a ruin and build the first environment scene. Then we will start building a farmhouse in a medieval style. We will use the workbench for modeling, Eevee for the texture work and Cycles to render the scenes to get the max out of it. After finishing the farmhouse, we merge the building with a nature environment. We will create the trees with the sapling add-on, so you will not need any external plugins. There is a full chapter about creating nature assets and in the final castle scene we will merge everything together to make a wonderful environmental scene. All content and textures come from Texture/HDRI Haven and are included in the course.

About me

My name is Rob Tuytel and I have been a environment designer for the past 13 years. I have a huge passion for the Dutch 17th century and mainly focus on medieval architecture. I run the platform Texture Haven together with Greg Zahl who also runs HDRI Haven. I recently completed my latest project Batavia 1627, a Realtime VR project for a Dutch museum. I love to study old environment paintings and use these as an inspiration for my work. You might know me from the Tears of Steel open Blender movie or from my previous environment course for Blender 2.79
