802 Prototyping: Turning Ideas into Reality
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, March 27
As more and more projects are built to accommodate multiple devices, the need to prototype grows. Whether you are creating a new project, developing an app, or simply launching a new responsive course, prototyping can help you better understand what’s working and what needs to be changed.
In this session, you will explore the latest strategies in prototyping. You will learn about specific tools, techniques, and workflows that will help you kick off any project the right way. You will discuss how to communicate a concept, beginning with low-fidelity prototypes, then gather user feedback and translate this into high-fidelity prototypes before you start development. You will leave this session with tools to turn your concepts into reality!
In this session, you will learn:
- How to get started with Adobe After Effects
- About tools and techniques for applying prototyping to your process
- Techniques for paper-, web-, and app-based prototyping
