About this Course
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.
What you’ll Learn
- The UX differences between websites, web apps and native apps
- Components of information architecture and hierarchy
- Ways to evaluate information architecture using sitemaps, wireframes and flow diagrams
- Usability techniques and how to write specifications for feature behavior
- Tools for creating clickable prototypes, including Sketch and InVision (free access for students)
