As a result of COVID-19 , millions of us are adapting to working from home, may have lost our jobs, or are looking for ways to reinvent our work to meet social distancing requirements.

  • Designed for individuals and people managing small-to-medium organizations, this introductory course will inspire you to reimagine how you can transform your work with others from a distance, using human-centered and UX design tools that have been applied across various design-oriented companies for decades.
