Rapid Prototyping

Google via Udacity


Prototyping allows you to spend ten minutes — instead of ten hours — finding an amazing design for your product. This course will guide you through the iterative process of prototyping an app and conducting user research. You will start by making a low fidelity paper prototype, conducting research with users, and using that research to inform your next iteration. Together with InVision we’ll guide you through creating interactive prototypes. This means you don’t have to code an app before putting it in front of users! Along the way, you’ll learn how and where prototyping fits into your app design process and how you can use prototyping to become a better entrepreneur.

  • Fairly simple course. The course is designed for beginners and I had no problem completing the course in just 2 days. I think the course is a small one should be done if you are taking the entrepreneurship programme in Udacity as this is one of the courses under the programme.
