Dereck du Toit, South Africa
The Interaction Design Foundation is the right place for you if you’re in search for the perfect balance between academic rigor and practical relevance… Sometimes you need more than learning. You need someone to believe in you, because motivation is more important than knowledge. Motivation is what pushes you to learn. Interaction Design Foundation is all about that.

I became a member of the Foundation to learn specifically about dashboards and to improve my English language skills. But I had a great surprise when I found that I could learn so much more! I always thought that online courses had a very limited grasp in learning, but the way that all the content was structured showed me that it is possible to build really good stuff in this format!

I would like to get reimbursement for my Interaction Design Foundation membership. This membership can benefit our team and company in the following ways:
- I can enroll in all the IxDF’s self-paced, online courses (in my spare time), which will help me complete current projects with better results.
- I can network with peers from all over the world and find out how others have addressed issues we are currently facing.
- I will be able to continuously educate myself on UX topics through the IxDF's courses and eBooks.
- Because of the breadth of educational materials, I will learn how to solve specific design problems.
- I want to offer to share the key takeaways from the courses with my team.
I missed the enrollment, and now the course is closed. What can I do?
Don't worry if you missed the course. We will re-run it shortly. One of the reasons we continually open and close courses is in order to control the classroom size.
Networking is a large part of our value proposition, so we want just the right number of people inside the courses. That is also why we display the "XX % percent booked" on our course icons.
