About the course

We have created a basic UX/UI design course by taking into account the requirements for people who want to start their journey in this field. This is a truly unique course. First of all, the student will be able to pass each lesson at a convenient time for him/her, also each student will have all the recorded lectures and tasks within their personal account on our website. Though the student is able to study and complete tasks at a convenient time, he or she will still have access to the instructor and the ability to contact the teacher in the group chat as well as during weekly Q&A sessions, which will give a sense of real-time learning with actual deadlines and group work.

During the course, the student will receive the necessary theory to apply in their projects and tasks which will also help to improve their practical skills.

 How this will work:

  • step by step we will learn the basics and foundation of composition, colors and typography

  • we will learn how to collect and analyze data about the competitors

  • we will work on projects taking into account all the best practices

  • the student will learn how to pass the design to developers

  • we will learn how to communicate and effectively work with the clients

  • and much more

The most valuable thing for the student is that after the course, each student will have several completed projects that can be added and presented in their portfolio. Also, as a bonus, the last lesson of the course will be held with a recruiter from Israel IT, where each student will be advised and taught how to correctly create an informative resume, how to plan the further steps in finding a job and how to present yourself at the interview.

The top students will have the opportunity to start their career as a UX/UI Designer in Israel IT.

The central academy Why is it worth it to learn this area?

Why is it worth it to learn this area?

UX/UI design is a field that is rapidly developing, so the demand for specialists is increasing. Currently, a business that does not have its own website is doomed to fail. Because the market is rapidly growing, the competition between companies is extremely high; this is why information about the company’s products and advertising gives them the advantage.

The UX/UI designer has the opportunity to develop, and work on interesting projects and with clients from different countries. The designer's work does not end after creating a layout, as their work is a cycle of analysis, design and testing of the product. Being the UX/UI designer you will always have the opportunity to improve your skills. Also, another great advantage of being a UX/UI designer is the opportunity to work from anywhere in the world, the main thing is to have access to the Internet and a desire to work.
