Learn how to use prototyping in the design process to generate ideas, validate concepts, or explore technologies. Discover how to transform ideas into interactive user experiences.
- I'm Randall Elliott, an associate director of design technology at Frog, a global design and strategy firm that transforms businesses through design and innovation that advances the human experience. Prototyping is a core element of creative problem solving, often called design thinking. In this course, you'll learn how to use this powerful form of idea generation and communication. The aim of this course is to teach you when and what to prototype, rather than learning how to make something using a specific tool.
Prototyping is exceptionally good at bringing people together and creating delight. It can take a good idea and transform it into an emotional experience. This course will share prototyping approaches we've used at Frog throughout our 45 year history to discover how we can use design to make meaningful connections with people.
