October 17: Prototyping Essentials–Making Your Ideas Interactive

Share

prototypingPaper prototyping is a quick and easy way to communicate your design ideas, but using paper to describe interactive behaviors can be challenging. If a picture is worth a thousand words, an interactive prototype could be worth millions! Enter Axure, one of the most popular and powerful interactive prototyping tools for the UX professional.  This workshop will give you hands-on training to create your own interactive wireframes and prototypes using Axure RP Pro.

We’ll cover the best uses for Axure and introduce you to the user interface. From there we’ll layout and create a wireframe using the most common elements, then add interactivity. We’ll get you started using some of the most powerful interactive features in Axure including masters, dynamic panels and variables. Can you learn everything Axure in one day? Of course not, but you’ll walk out with a solid foundation, ready to add this to your UX toolbox.
