Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing the right tool, part of UX Foundations: Prototyping (2013).
In this chapter we're going to explore many of the…tools and resources that can help you build effective prototypes.…Before we get into the actual tools themselves, I want to take a moment…and talk about how to go about choosing the right tools for your projects.…Picking the right tool starts with understanding the focus of your prototype.…It's not unusual for someone to use several different tools on…different versions of prototypes over the course of a single design.…Once you know the requirements for your prototype, you're a lot…better equipped to know exactly which tool is right for the job.…
When you're first starting out, I…recommend staying with what you already know.…Although there are a huge number of tools out there that are dedicated solely…to prototyping Chances are you already work…with software that can build what you need.…I've seen effective prototypes made with PowerPoint,…Keynote, Acrobat and Word.…If you're a designer and have skills in programs like high end graphic software.…Or if you know HTML and CSS, you're ahead of the game.…
