      January 20 - 29, 2021

      Designing for voice interaction can be an intimidating concept for a generation of designers trained primarily in visual principles and patterns. But there’s a greater need for voice designers than there are folks experienced in voice design. Join us and see how the skills you already have can translate to this evolving design specialty. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of voice design and apply those skills to plan your own voice app or skill.

    • Measuring Experience

      a workshop with Tomer Sharon
      webcast
      March 3 - 5, 2021

      10 hours over 3 segments: Mar 3-5, 2021. Experience measurement can be useful in just about any phase of the development of a product or service. Early on, it can be used to get input from target users. During iterative design and prototyping, experience metrics can be used to get quick feedback about design alternatives. And once a product or service is deployed, you can understand what is going on based on systematically measuring customers’ attitude and behavior. This workshop is oriented towards practical use, with a strong emphasis on interactive quizzes and real-world examples.
