Introducing the new UX Content Collective
We started UX Writers Collective in January of 2019 with one online course and one big mission: Help humans and computers get along by putting content first in the user experience. It was a pretty lofty goal!
Since then, we’ve grown to become a destination for thousands of like-minded UX content folks from around the globe who want to make products, services, and experiences better for all. We now offer specialized skills and certification courses, coaching, consulting, workshops, webinars, and more. And this is just the beginning…
We’re updating our URL, our company name, and the look and feel for our brand, but our dedication to training and supporting new content experts remains the same.
Why we chose UX Content Collective
We believe our new name, UX Content Collective (or UXCC for short), better represents our customers: content professionals across the industry who are focused on creating better user experiences, no matter their roles or titles.
The change celebrates that our industry has evolved beyond simply writing for UX projects and now encompasses knowledge of writing, strategy, and technology for multiple disciplines. For us it means a bigger variety of courses, an expanded library of content, and even more ways to help move your career forward.
How does this impact the course content and certifications?
You can expect new courses in the coming months that go beyond UX writing to bring best practices and skills training to entire product teams. That includes product managers, localization people, front-end developers, copywriters, technical writers, and the people who lead them.
We’ll continue to provide certification for courses that cover deep training in skills. We’ll also offer a range of supporting courses that offer explorations, writing workouts, and career support without certification.
What can you look forward to?
