Overview

Sketching helps you to communicate abstract ideas and transform them into tangible artifacts that can be further explored and validated. With their low fidelity, sketches provide room for interpretation and invite discussion. Sketches also are a starting point for iteration. Many companies, such as Google, have come to recognize sketching as a powerful communication tool that can be used not only within a team, but also when collaborating with customers. The openSAP course ‘Be Visual! Sketching Basic for IT Business’ starts with the very basics of sketching. By applying the practice-oriented tips and tricks in this course, you’ll gain the confidence to present your ideas visually. From basic shapes and handwriting to creating storyboards and screen sketches, you’ll be able to use these techniques whether at a flipchart, whiteboard, or at your desk

by Ronny completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Good course for IT Business analysts. IT people are rational people preferring formulas over artistic drawings. However, drawings are an excellent way to improve communications between business and IT and allow for better UX design.

The course gives a lot of tips on materials and techniques, both on flipchart/whiteboard as on paper. The exercises are challenging if you are not used to drawing, but it is quite fun to come out of your comfort zone and use the other part of your brain with sketching.
