Summary: Developing a depth of understanding of how users will interact with your product or service, specifically under which conditions of use and surrounding constraints, is vital to quality UX. Further to context of use is the ability to build this team skill called "contextual intelligence" continuously. The more a team factors for context of use, the more design decisions can benefit, leading to context-aware designs that respond and shape better user experiences.

Summary: Customer service, customer experience, and user experience efforts come together around touchpoints. Touchpoints are significant interactions between customers and companies, occurring across channels. Figuring out where your journeys break down and how to better improve the interactions that occur there is a big deal for UX ROI.
What is the significance of a touchpoint?
Products and service systems (think mobile app orders food delivery) rely on touchpoints. Touchpoints are value-rich exchanges between customers and your business. Common examples of touchpoints include information, help, advice, or consultation. Touchpoints occur when and where the customer wants them to occur. Likewise, user behavior is “choose your own channel” (omnichannel) by default. It is for this reason that touchpoints need to be observed, optimized, and made consistently available across channels.

UX Writing is critical to creating a good experience. At its core, UX writing relies on the strategic use of words in alignment with UX goals. For example, good copywriting helps facilitate three important goals: 1) quick scanning, 2) reading and comprehending, and 3) taking action. Taking action relates to usability & accessibility and, of course, to conversion rates. In this Masterclass, we will prioritize how you can leverage emotional impact for improved customer conversion rates.
Summary: Users are not usually successful at configuring software, websites or devices and the configuration experience can be a major source of frustration. Instead, we need to move toward a world where everything is auto-configured and user experiences are "plug and play".
You know the drill: You download or install a new piece of software or open a new piece of technology (e.g. mobile phone, laptop, VR system) and you have to "configure it" to get something to work or work the way you want it to...
I refer to configuration in its broadest sense: A user must perform some advanced action in order to get some desired result from software, a website or a product experience. Typically the term configuration means to adjust or change settings- hiding, activating or altering useful features and system behaviors.
