My user experience

I just created my own account in Degreed and selected that I wanted to improve my skills in design (wireframes and user experience).

I was then given recommendations on articles to read, books, courses, videos, and people in the Degreed network with the skills I wish to acquire. 

I selected a 3 minute YouTube video and then marked it as complete and typed a sentence on what I had learned. 

This video is now saved to my profile along with my comment on what I learned.  I earned 0.1 pts.

Specifically, please check all that apply:

Tell us about your work experience:

I am the Community Guide for this challenge. I have studied at Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds University in the UK and graduated with qualifications in Biochemistry, Toxicology, and Environmental Management. I have held a number of jobs including being a TEFL teacher and energy analyst.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

How can we track all our learning experiences for ourselves and future employers / customers? How can we find the gaps in our learning experiences?
