Building High Conversion Web Forms

About This Course

Any meaningful experience on the web has a form. Whether it's a form made of text boxes, toggles, buttons, checkboxes, or touchable widgets, web developers need to be purposeful about forms to make users happy and increase [conversions](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversion_marketing). In this course, you'll learn best practices for modern forms as taught by Google's Ido Green and Udacity's Cameron Pittman. You'll practice your skills along the way with a few self-directed projects, including an e-commerce checkout and an event planner app! As a special treat, you'll also watch a series of interviews with Luke Wroblewski, Google Product Director and author of [Web Form Design](http://www.lukew.com/resources/web_form_design.asp), to get his take on interactions for the modern web.

Why Take This?

The modern web is mobile and interactive. Thousands (maybe millions?) of websites include account creation forms and checkout forms. Websites ask you to tap buttons and fill out text boxes. They ask you for information and prompt you to take action. You fill out forms on big screens with physical keyboards and small screens with virtual keyboards. There are millions of ways users interact with the modern web, and any website with interactions needs to do everything it can to influence the way users interact in order to ultimately increase conversions. Building High Conversion Web Forms exists to help you, the web developer, think about forms and interactions for all of your users, no matter the form or the device. You'll practice handling user input to build forms that rock!
