In this course, interaction designer Luke Wroblewski shows how to create web forms that encourage visitors to enter information and covers ways to capture input without the use of forms. The course covers boosting conversion rates and customer satisfaction, organizing the structure of forms, aligning and grouping form elements, assigning the correct input field types, validating input, and handling data entry errors. The last chapter highlights alternatives to static forms, such as using dynamic inline forms, using web services, and leveraging device capabilities, which can be used to gather additional information or replace a traditional form altogether.
At this point, we have taken a real deep dive ito web forms and beyond, so thanks for sticking with me. We looked at why web forms matter. Whether it's e-commerce, registration, or any other crucial flow online, web forms are likely to be at the center of the action, sitting between what our customers want and what our businesses are trying to achieve. As a result, even the smallest details in web forms matter. We looked at a lot of these details when we talked about form organization. How can we use labels, input fields, actions and the overall structure and layout of forms to get people through tasks quickly and easily, we also saw how form interactions can play a role.
The back and forth conversations we have with our customers can really define the type of experience they have when they're signing up or buying something from our sites. Last but not least, we looked at moving beyond static web forms; device capabilities, web services and existing communication tools can really allow us to capture input wherever people happen to be and not require them to come to our sites and fill in our web forms every time we have a data request. Hopefully, you find these details as useful as I have. If you're ever interested in talking more about web forms, you can find me on Twitter at lukew or my own site lukew.com.
I am happy to keep the conversation going, whatever your questions are about Web Forms may be. Thanks, and best of luck with your own designs.
