9 reasons to join the IDF

2. Because Our Content is King
Ivy League level education in UX, Product Design or Human-Computer Interaction
A goldmine of information on interaction design
...an incredibly rich compendium filled with a wide variety of lessons and information
Top-grade educational materials by the world’s technology elite... on how to make technology more people-oriented and easy-to-use.
...the oldest and largest operator in the field of UX, with well-respected tutors such as Don Norman. That specialism in UX makes a huge difference… they aren’t a ‘teach me anything’ learning platform. They are specialists with all of the associated credibility that comes with that.
As someone who’s worked on quite a few 150+ page ebooks at UXPin, even I was impressed by the depth of the material and author expertise.
I found the amazing quantity and quality of available UX design courses to be almost overwhelming. The primary value membership in the Interaction Design Foundation provides is unlimited free access to over 34 top of the line, high quality courses in the UX design field.
Focusing on the interaction between human psychology and existing design trends, the IDF’s user experience courses support industry trailblazers by offering ‘future-proof’ knowledge… users can indulge from multiple ends of the design spectrum.
Our peer-reviewed, evidence-based educational materials are used by the following universities in their curricula:

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 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.

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!!
