Design System
Amanda Worthington The UX Portfolio Power Play
Instructor: Amanda Worthington
Completed: February 2021

Take your portfolio from incomplete, hot mess, or cookie cutter to confident, clear, and uniquely you! And set you up for success so that you can continuously update your portfolio without having an "OH SHIT" moment later down the road. Say buh-bye to overhauling your website every 3-6 months and hello to sustainable design!

Completed: September 2020

The Clear Modeling Framework provides students with a step-by-step guide to defining, designing, and sharing models that will give students confidence when approaching complexity.

Information Architecture
Object Oriented UX OOUX Certification Program
Instructor: Sophia Prater
Completed: July 2020

We understand environments (physical and digital) by identifying the objects within those environments. But digital environments are not beholden to the laws of physics. Without OOUX, it's easy to design systems that confuse users with unexpected objects that don't match their mental model of how the world works. And lots of blue, pink, yellow, and green sticky notes.

Interaction Design Foundation Accessibility: How to Design for All
Instructor: Frank Spiller
Completed: July 2020

Good accessibility is crucial to making your website or app a success. Not only is designing for accessibility required by law in many countries—if you fail to consider accessibility, you are excluding millions of people from using your product. Accessibility is so important—not just for moral and legal reasons, but also so that your products can reach their full potential. You need to design for accessibility!
