How to Design Engaging Products: Insights from Fortnite's UX
Learn how to create engaging user experiences with insights from Epic Games’ Fortnite.
In this Master Class webinar, former director of UX at Epic Games and 15-year game industry veteran, Celia Hodent, will show you the psychology and UX framework behind the development of successful games like Fortnite, and how you can apply the same strategies to the development of any product, service, or system.
In this Master Class you’ll also learn what successful gamification entails—which is more complex than merely adding "badges" to an experience. Effective gamification requires a deep understanding of human motivation and the notion of "transfer" (of a skill learned in one context onto another context).
Finally, Celia will also talk about the ethics of engagement and how to draw a line between engaging users and exploiting them, thus slipping into dark patterns or shady practices feeding the so-called "attention economy."
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
The UX framework and iteration process applied in the development of Fortnite.
The cognitive science and psychology that support the development of engaging and fun video games and how to apply it to other products.
What gamification (or playful learning) needs to be efficient. This applies to any product intended to encourage healthier habits for example, or to educate in a playful way.
The ethical considerations that any UX professional should have when working on the "engageability" of a product.
Join this Master Class to learn how to engage users and make playful products by applying the lessons from video game developers. Learn the key ingredients that make video games fun and how to use them ethically in other products.

The Power of Storytelling in UX
In today’s digital landscape, users are inundated with information, products and choices. To break through the noise, you need to have a unique identity illustrated through a story. Storytelling is essential to differentiate yourself and your product.
In this Master Class webinar, you have the opportunity to learn from Product and UX Design Lead at The Walt Disney Company, Fernando Hereñu. He’ll show you how assertive communication is a crucial driver to creating an authentic speech and an empathic story that reaches your users' hearts. A unique and personal speech is essential because it allows your audience to feel included and part o your story. To build a successful user experience, you have to have an in-depth understanding of storytelling and analyze its main layers: sociohistorical and narrative.
In this Master Class, you’ll learn:
- Why storytelling is so significant in the human experience.
- How to build and craft a narrative from the start.
- How to achieve an effective and persuasive message to reach your target audience.
- How to establish an emotional connection between your business and users.
- How to practice storytelling to enhance user experience and proper usage areas.
- What’s next in storytelling.
Join this Master Class to learn how to engage and persuade your users through a compelling story.

Introduction to Digital Accessibility
Over 1 billion people (15% of the world's population) have a disability (or two or more) and yet, most of the internet is still inaccessible to those who use assistive technology to access the web. As a creator or contributor to developing a digital experience, you can change that. By creating usable experiences for people at the margins, we end up creating better experiences for everyone.
In this session with Elana Chapman, Accessibility Research Manager at Fable, she will go over the basics of digital accessibility. Fable is a leader in digital accessibility and works with clients across the world, including an ongoing partnership with Microsoft.
In this Master Class, you’ll learn:
-Different types of assistive technology.
-How to leverage tools to test accessibility for your website or product.
This Master Class is intended for anyone involved in creating digital experiences—content creators, UX designers, product managers, QA testers, and developers. This webinar will equip you with the knowledge to start creating inclusive digital experiences for assistive technology users.

Complex UI Design: Practical Techniques
Digital interfaces are constantly evolving and advancing—it’s more important than ever to create user-friendly and easy-to-navigate experiences.
In this webinar, we'll explore the vital role of design in complex user interfaces and how it can significantly enhance the user experience.
Vitaly Friedman, senior UX consultant of the European Parliament and creative lead of Smashing Magazine, will talk about the intricacies of solving complex design problems. Whether you're working on a multi-level navigation or creating enterprise-grade tables, this webinar will provide you with the necessary tools to excel in your work.
During this session, you'll learn:
- How to design complex mega-dropdowns with 4+ levels of navigation, layout, interaction design, sideways navigation, breadcrumbs, infinite scroll, carousels, and top task analysis. How to create enterprise-grade tables with complex use cases such as inline editing, filtering, tagging, sorting, and search.
- How to design complex multi-page forms, including one-column vs. multi-column layout, error recovery, inline validation, routing, conditional reveal, disabled buttons, and progress bars.
- Language Selector UX, including auto-redirects, language and country presets, support for overrides, and non-modal dialogs.
- Authentication UX, including 2-factor-authentication, magic links, password recovery UX, and CAPTCHAs.
You'll leave this Master Class with a toolbox of practical techniques you can apply to your work immediately. Join us to learn how to design complex UIs that are both powerful and user-friendly.
Even if you can't attend live, register to gain access to a recording that you can watch at any time.

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.
