Learn all the considerations that are weighed in when prototyping for UX design. In this tutorial, Diane Cronenwett explains how speed and tools determine your UX prototyping approach
- [Instructor] Creating prototypes has a time cost.…The cost is worth the investment however,…because you'll find out through this prototyping process…where your design ideas fail and where they shine.…As a result of the cost on time, when producing prototypes,…the idea is to get through prototyping the design…as quickly as possible, so you can get to better ideas…and better designs through feedback.…Depending on where you are in your design process,…prototyping can be done quickly and cheaply using paper…or more robustly using more advanced tools…to represent advanced functionality.…
Another consideration is who you'll be…testing your prototype with.…You'll want to make sure you're getting feedback…from your target audience,…so you'll want to determine if your users will be in person…or if you'll be testing through remote session.…Knowing how you will be testing your prototype…might change your approach to your prototyping method.…Another important consideration is…to use the right tool for the right job.…Most prototyping tools will cover…
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.
