Why learn content research in the age of AI?

Content research skills come first

No amount of artificial intelligence will replace the context and knowledge you have about your users. Content research is a complex task that occurs multiple times over a single design phase – before you use any tool, you need to know what to look for. That’s what we teach.

“The course gave me a good base for testing content and conducting content research. The final project was a great way to apply the concepts that were covered. I was able to apply what I learned to my current role right away.”
