How To Differentiate Your Mobile UX

According to research, 25% of users abandon mobile apps after one use. After one month, 63% uninstall their apps. So, how do you keep users engaged with your mobile experience? And how do you stop users from abandoning or uninstalling your app? Moreover, how do you create an app that serves users above the noise of today’s crowded mobile app market?

Since ‘anyone can design a mobile app,’ it's important to start your mobile app experience with a differentiated UX. In this Master Class webinar, Frank Spillers will cover emotional differentiation for mobile UX. In addition, he will share case studies of how to make your mobile UX better by incorporating inclusion and sociability into your app differentiation puzzle.

This Master Class will touch on what you'll learn in our upcoming course, Mobile UX Design: The Beginner's Guide. Stay tuned for the launch!

You’ll learn:

  • How to approach mobile UX for 2023 and beyond.

  • How to build emotion design strategies into your mobile UX.

  • How to build inclusive design into your mobile UX.

  • What sociability means for mobile and how to improve it.

  • How to design cross-culturally sensitivity into your app (for other markets).

Whether you develop, design, or strategize about mobile UX, this webinar will give you new insights into the importance of differentiating for mobile. Differentiation is critical for mobile because, without it, users may skip your app or expect to uninstall it from the start. Instead, giving them a mobile experience they can’t live without should be your goal for mobile UX design.

Strategy Custody: How to Secure Your Strategy's Success

What happens after you build a strategy? You and your team have spent hours, days and weeks researching and finally developing a strategy, but if you aren't careful, it can end up just as a piece of paper that no one references. Much like a tree that falls in the forest, what happens if it doesn't make a sound?

This is why Strategy Custody is important. How your strategy travels and affects people is the difference between an alive strategy and a dead one. In this Master Class, Product Management expert Adam Thomas will talk about the difference between a dead strategy and an alive strategy and how you can maintain high strategic custody to affect the decisions around you.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • The strategy kernel—how to organize strategy into something useful.
  • Why you should check when your strategy was last accessed more often than you currently do.
  • How to avoid making strategy a paperweight.
  • How to connect the strategy with what’s happening to keep building on it.
  • How you can tie strategy to OKRs in a way that makes the numbers useful in decision-making.
  • Exercises that keep strategy top of mind.

Strategy is complex, it’s not something that you create once and leave alone—you need to keep interacting with it. Discover how to make the most of your strategy and how you can evolve with it.

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.

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.
