I'm really enjoying this course. Although I'm spending more time on the lessons than I had planned it has been worth it. The lessons are presented in chunks and the exercises have been useful because I can check what I've learned.

Dear manager,

I would like to get reimbursement for my membership of the Interaction Design Foundation (IDF). This membership can benefit our team and company in the following ways:

  1. I can enroll in all the IDF’s self-paced, online courses (in my spare time), which will help me complete current projects with a better result.
  2. I can network with peers from all over the world and find out how others have addressed issues we are currently facing.
  3. I will be able to continuously educate myself on UX topics through IDF's courses and eBooks. I can use my new-found knowledge to save our company from hiring someone to do certain UX tasks in the future. 
  4. I can get a mentor from IDF’s members from companies like SAP, Google, Apple, Oracle, and universities like Stanford, MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Cambridge and many more.
  5. Because of the breadth of educational materials I will be able to learn how to solve specific design problems. And I can acquire new skill sets that our company is lacking.
  6. I would like to offer to share the key take-aways from the courses with my team.

PS: To give you some background, the Interaction Design Foundation is an educational foundation comprised of the world’s design and UX elite and you can read more about the foundation at
