What is the course about?

Rapid Prototyping
The course Rapid Prototyping is an online class provided by Udacity. The skill level of the course is Intermediate. It may be possible to receive a verified certification or use the course to prepare for a degree.

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.
