Remote UX Bootcamps
Remote Bootcamps can be a flexible way to take a deep dive into UX learning. Most UX remote bootcamps range around 4 to 6 months in duration - though everyone often goes at their own pace. They usually have pre-recorded video sessions then ask the student to work through a series of design exercises to practice what they've learned. Some, but not all, remote bootcamps offering mentoring sessions so the student can ask questions from a senior design instructor.
Strengths of Remote UX Bootcamps
Generally, the biggest benefit of a remote UX bootcamp is the breath of learning, as the course work often cover a full spectrum of User Experience Research as well as User Interface Design.
The other biggest benefit is the timing and ability to go at your own pace. If you're not looking to break into UX Design right away, these can be a great solution!
Weaknesses of Remote UX Bootcamps
Again, skills are worth more than credentials but a remote bootcamp certificate doesn't always mean much to potential employers. Additionally, the case studies aren't connected to real clients - leaving a portfolio with limited "real world" experience.
Also, UX design is team sport - for some, a more "hands on" approach to UX learning is helpful - having an instructor right next to you, or actually working alongside your design peers and interacting with clients is some of the most impactful methods of learning UX/UI design.
Pricing & Value of Remote UX Bootcamps
Pricing for a remote bootcamp can vary drastically, on average, most remote bootcamps will come in around the $5,000 dollar price point.
