Learn how high-fidelity UX prototypes are created and how they are defined. In this tutorial, Diane Cronenwett describes the advantages and disadvantages of high-fidelity prototyping.
- [Narrator] Medium fidelity prototypes can share…attributes of high fidelity prototypes in the look and feel,…but may not have all the functionality and flows ready.…Medium fidelity prototypes work well…when you have some of the design accounted for.…But might not have a complete picture…of the design, quite yet.…By comparison, high fidelity prototypes…are typically close to the final design…and will have all the color and branding represented…and may be fully interactive.…Some advantages to medium and high fidelity prototypes…are that they're more representative…of the look and feel of the design.…
Because the design feels more real,…users will go through the prototype…as they would a normal website.…The design doesn't need a facilitator…for high fidelity prototypes.…If the prototype is close to completion,…all screen flows will be accounted for,…so generally speaking, a facilitator…isn't required to walk the user through the design.…If the prototype is close to completion…all screen flows should be accounted for.…
Explore the benefits, techniques, and tools of prototyping in this introductory course with designer Diane Cronenwett. Diane covers the basics of building effective prototypes with the right "fidelity," and getting more valuable feedback from your design testing. Learn how to build simple, satisfying prototypes on paper, and use digital prototyping tools like Moqups, InVision, and Axure to add interactivity and animation.
