Course Description

How do you reach a market of nearly 2 billion people without ever leaving your desk? The mobile Internet. How do you make sure that when you reach that market they engage with your products? By delivering a great user experience on mobile devices. In this course you’ll learn how to do just that.

Back in 2015, more than 50% of all eCommerce traffic originated on mobile devices (*). That means that mobile user experience is no longer an optional extra, it is the most important factor in most product and websites’ success or failure. Mobile User Experience Design must be understood by design teams, marketing teams and developers alike.

The user experience is different on mobile. Sure, you could learn that through trial and error but that would take time and cost a lot of money before you get it right. The good news is that many of the differences are now clearly understood.

Need an example? What about the fact that a user’s understanding of content on mobile devices has been shown to be less than half (*) their understanding on a desktop? If you want to overcome that issue – your content, visual design, navigation, etc. needs to be twice as intuitive to use and digest than it was on the desktop. There’s simply no room for error in the mobile environment; it’s an unforgiving place.

This course, Mobile User Experience Design, has been built on evidence-based research and practice. It is taught by the CEO of, Frank Spillers, a distinguished speaker, author and internationally respected Senior Usability practitioner.
