The course certificates I earned helped me prove my newly acquired UX design skills at my place of work. It’s an honor to be part of your organization, and I am looking forward to growing and contributing to the field, thanks to your amazing courses.
I’ve just published my first UX case study in 3 months of joining the IDF and I’m so happy about it! It wouldn’t have been possible without the IDF—thank you for providing such a great platform for young designers to learn and practice UI / UX design.
I originally joined the IDF to get a job in UX. Back then, I just graduated from university, and used the IDF courses to get industry-relevant skills. The courses are very high quality, and when I put my certificates on LinkedIn and my resume it helped me land a job.
My IDF membership has paid itself about 20 times after getting a pay raise based on my new skills. The education provided by the instructors, designers, and support staff at IDF is superb. I have learned so much in such a short time, and all of it has been applicable to my professional goals. Truly, a world class experience.
Thank you for providing such wonderful, university-level design education! I found that IDF courses are incredibly in-depth and specialized in UX design. It’s no wonder IDF course certificates are trusted by employers.
The courses I’ve taken have opened many doors for my career. I wanted to say thank you! IDF is just the best thing ever. Just ever! Simply awesome!
Your courses have been life-changing! I have embarked on a new career starting with the courses on your website. I’m grateful to have come across your foundation that will allow me to continue to build my career as a designer without having to spend a fortune and feel the stress on top of what comes with other family responsibilities.
I’m definitely enjoying the courses so far, and looking forward to learning more. The website is an incredible resource for learning UX design skills and industry best practices. Big thanks for creating such a treasure trove of courses.
I am recommending membership for IDF to everyone in this space—and everyone buys in because it’s so incredibly industry-relevant.
IDF 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.
You are a great team of human, cognitive and pedagogy centered professionals. I’m really glad that I’ve become a member and have all of these tons of information for self-paced learning!
For a while I had been looking for online interaction design courses and I am really happy I found you guys. You’re doing a great job!
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!
Interaction Design Foundation offers a fantastic catalog of UX courses. Members can take unlimited courses for free!
What a great lesson by Frank Spillers on Mobile UX Design at Interaction Design Foundation!!
I will definitely refer my friends to join the Interaction Design Foundation. ‘Innovative’ and ‘Informative’ are the two terms that describe the Interaction Design Foundation.
My first impression of the site: brilliant design, almost perfect UX. I felt at home immediately!
