EXPOA103 Creating Experiences from Concept to Launch with Design Thinking

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM
Wednesday, April 20

Tracks: Development & Tools

Series: EXPOA

Many teams repeat the same mistakes, running into the same walls and attempt to avoid the same obstacles with minimal luck. Will we ever design a better way to create great experiences in learning? What if there was a simple process for sketching and prototyping concepts with feedback prior to starting development?

Using design thinking with Agile principles can help your team ideate, visualize, test, and gather feedback to create an iterative process that will lead to improved results for your audience. With the majority of us working remotely, we can apply this vision to create amazing learning experiences that focus on agility, flexibility, adaptability and individuals. Starting with a need, a concept, or current implementation, we’ll share how to evaluate, design, and gather feedback to make a decision based on how you can best help your audiences.

In this session, we’ll break down the steps needed to help you discover how to effectively brainstorm, test, gather feedback, and design quickly with collaboration to transform your experiences. You’ll learn about practical apps, tools, and techniques to create a workflow that focuses on your audience. Finally, we’ll look at resources and provide next steps so that you can implement them immediately after the event.

Technologies addressed:  
Miro, Figma, Adobe Creative Suite + Apps, 3rd Party, Open source tools and free resources
