Learn about user experience (UX) design principles that can make a web form appealing, easy to use, accessible, and secure.
- [Emily] Web forms are everywhere. We use them everyday, but often the user experience is impacted by poor design, badly phrased questions, and technical issues. My goal is to share with you terminology, techniques, and best practice tips so that you'll be able to design better web forms. You will gain an understanding of simple things you can do to avoid confusing your user and ways in which you can build more streamlined customer interactions. Welcome to UX for Web Forms. My name is Emily Kay, and I've been designing and developing websites professionally and teaching others how to build them for the past two decades. My intention is to help you become more efficient as a designer, and to infuse UX into all forms you design. You'll not only want to meet the expectations of your customer, but also satisfy the needs of their customers. Join me on LinkedIn Learning as I share my favorite Form UX techniques with you.
