We live in an increasingly social and mobile world with people expecting more dynamic and engaging digital experiences in both their professional and personal lives. Part of the challenge for marketers is integrating the User Experience (UX) into digital strategies to gain insights into behavioural motivations and create an optimal experience for the user.
Designing Digital Experiences is an online program that will enable you to enhance a design’s usability and accessibility beyond just ‘looking nice’ to exploring the underlying human experience of a product or service.
In this professional development course, you will explore customer-centric design strategies, learn how to ‘user test’ for effective problem solving and explore customer journey mapping.
You will also learn the essential elements of user personas, how to engage with key stakeholders to formulate actionable data and insights, and explore the relationship between the User Interface (UI) and the User Experience (UX).
On completion of this course, you will be able to leverage insights in your marketing, creative or operational role to integrate UX as a critical piece of a customer’s digital journey.

When you study with Australian Online Courses, you will be assessed using a competency-based training method.
Competency-based training focuses on the achievement of skills and knowledge against set criteria to ensure your competency is industry relevant. You will not be benchmarked against other students.
If you do not achieve a competency result on your first attempt, you have two more attempts to pass your assessment. So, you have three attempts in total to obtain a competency result.
In this way, you can complete your course in your own time and at your own pace with the assistance of unlimited tutor support.
In this course, you will be assessed via multiple-choice questions to determine your mastery of details and specific knowledge gained during your studies to achieve a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ result.
Benefits of Multiple-Choice Assessments
Appropriate for assessing students’ mastery of details and specific knowledge.
Can be used to assess both simple knowledge and complex concepts.
Questions can be answered quickly to accurately assess a students’ mastery of many topics relatively quickly.
Assessment can be quickly and reliably scored to achieve a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ result.
As the answers are visible, multiple-choice questions offer the opportunity for the continuation of the learning process, offering educational value.
Had a great experience studying these online courses. Hopefully, it will benefit me in securing a good job in my field.
