User Experience (UX) Prototyping

Explore the role prototyping plays in influencing the user experience. Learn about different ways to prototype, from basic paper models through light digital solutions. Learn how to take the prototype code already generated in previous courses and start "light coding" to enhance the motion, bringing it beyond the "out of the box" viewpoint. In addition to creating prototypes, learn how to manage the user testing of prototypes and how to capture and interpret user feedback.
