Adobe XD Essential Training: Prototype and Share (2018)

via LinkedIn Learning


Learn how to build rich, interactive UX prototypes, share with stakeholders to validate and collect feedback, and then hand them off to developers to build the app or website.

Adobe XD is a fantastic platform for UX design that allows you to create rich prototypes with fixed elements, overlays, and complex animations. It also has powerful features for capturing feedback and for developer handoff. Demian Borba is a strategic development manager for XD and, in this course, he shares insider tips on prototyping and sharing design and prototypes with XD. Learn how to build artboards into clickable prototypes with transitions and detailed microinteractions; record prototypes as videos; preview on iOS and Android; and export to After Effects. Then, when it's time for sharing, create web links with your work for stakeholders to review with comments and pins, and with developers via Design Spec links, where they can get all the info they need, including assets.
