The Trainer worked extremely hard to provide the best possible performance for both the session and the material. She almost shared her experiences, real-time scenarios, and how to handle the situations. I learned about the entire beginning to end process of product delivery, realized the various responsibilities and roles. Detailed illustration of content design methods. The processes of content design, content testing, content strategy, card sorting, A or B testing, user journey mapping, mind mapping, user behavior, accessibility, Aria label, alt text, design thinking, voice and tone, and tools like Figma, Miro, and Mural were among the main takeaways from her lectures, which I found to be beneficial.

    Hi,
    My name is Prerna Singh and I m working as a technical writer. I want to upgrade myself with this UX writing course but due to this course fee, I think I would not be able to take this course. As my salary is only 6lpa so I would not be able to submit the fees instantly. As a married working women there are some other expenses also which I have to take. So I please you people to give me some consideration or just half these fees in two months so that I can learn and pay simultaneously.

    I will be obliged if you consider my words.

    Thanks & Regards
    Prerna Singh
