I think you're on a bad footing if there's any confusion over the role the user is in when viewing a page. It's generally a good idea to use a non-overlapping language appropriate to the role, and set the tone and context so that the user simply cannot be confused. As a host, you might see phrases like your property/properties your home your listings ...

The X button to close a dialog is probably about the most consistent thing users will see across all dialogs, windows, popups, overlays, etc. It's synonymous with the 'get me out of here' sentiment. I don't even have to read any of the content in the dialog, nor any of the buttons to know that the X button will help me escape without doing something unwanted....

I think everything in a site of this sort would fall into one of three categories: User acting as a "Host" = Selling User acting as a "Guest" = Buying Configuration - username/password/security, banking information, dark/light mode, etc. When you are in "Host" mode, you are dealing with "what rates should I offer", &...

Your observation that it's easier to read columns of information when they're left-aligned is correct. However, flipping the box order in a picker pattern breaks one of the usability heuristics: match between the system and the real world. System patterns should match patterns that are already understood in the real world, including those in use in other ...

The website/app needs to have navigation and labels that are self-explanatory. One such good example is Uber.com. The navigation has a products section that has links like Ride, Drive, Eat, and so on. These sections are the 2 sides of the marketplace (or technically a platform). Once the user goes inside a product, the user can sign in/up to use the service.

Of course you should display the Purchased instead of hiding it. Maybe they want to reffer the course to someone or would like the satisfaction of seeing that they bought all the courses in any case there are no real benefits in hiding it. For further experience somewhere inside the product page instead of the Buy course button it could have a button that ...

There's no concrete number to provide. One somewhat relevant number here is the "magical number" 7 +- 2, which serves a rough estimate of how many items a person can generally hold in short-term memory. However, it's not necessary to limit yourself to that number. Just know that not being able to keep all the items in short-term memory could ...

It depends on the goal of the user: Does the user want to see a list of videos an scroll through it to search for inspiration (as you would do on a video portal)? Is the goal to see the newest uploaded videos to keep track on the new content? I assume the first is true. In this case the user should not be bothered with the list changing (updating). The ...

Using the same animation from the main tab (Scan) in the secondary tab (Manual) could make clear that the SCAN is still active. It can be smaller to make place for the list of nearby hardware. I've seen something similar in Android with Google Pay NFC using a small animation in different tabs. Renaming the secondary tab to "Scan and manual" could ...
