This course can only be taken as part of the Certificate in UX & Visual Interface Design.
This course builds on the design thinking skills you gained in the previous course, with a focus on the prototyping phase of the UX design process. You’ll begin by learning to conduct a content audit and outline the design solution. We’ll then dive into information architecture, looking at content structure, organizing schemes, labeling, search, navigation and metadata modeling. You’ll create flow diagrams for content layout and discover how to map the user journey, then use sitemaps and wire framing to create high-fidelity prototypes to test and evaluate designs.
You’ll use industry-standard tools to create a design prototype for a specific product or process.
