How will the Virtual UX Conference work?
Meetings will take place using the videoconferencing service Zoom, collaboration tools (such as group document editing and whiteboarding tools), and social discussion platform Slack. You’ll also be able to use Slack before, during, and after the event to participate in social events and network with other participants.
What do I need in order to attend the virtual event?
To participate in interactive live courses and exercises with other course participants, you will need:
- stable high-speed internet connection, to stream audio and video to your computer
- speakers, a microphone, and a webcam (strongly recommended)
- a computer that does not have a strict firewall that blocks collaboration tools such as Google Docs
- Zoom’s meeting software (which is free to download and install), or Chrome browser
What is the start and end time for classes?
Here are the start and end times for courses at this event. Each course meets in 2 sessions, over 2 consecutive days. You must attend both days in order to be eligible to take the UX Certification exam.
|Time Zone||Course Session Starts||Course Session Ends|
|San Francisco||5 PM||8:30 PM|
|New York||8 PM||11:30 PM|
|Singapore||9 AM (next day)||12:30 PM|
|Sydney||12 PM (next day)||3:30 PM|
Will the virtual courses be recorded?
No. These are live events that rely heavily on audience interaction and small-group activities in online breakout rooms. Thus, a recording would not have the same instructional value, thus we will not offer this.
Do I have to choose my sessions when I register?
Yes. This not only speeds registration but also ensures you’ll get a virtual seat in the sessions you want.
Can I get UX Certified at this event?
Yes. Attend at least 5 courses and pass all 5 exams to earn an NN/g UX Certificate. You can take the 5 courses all at this event, or take some at this event and the rest at a future event.
How do exams work for UX Certification?
You must sign in to each class you attend. At the end of class on the second day, the online exam will be available for that class. You will be able to log in, pay exam fees (if they were not already paid when you registered), and take the exam. You can take your exams the same day, or any time within 35 calendar days after the conference.
