Series: Tools & Techniques

Many teams repeat the same mistakes, run 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?

In this session we will explore the latest strategies in prototyping using Adobe XD. You will learn about this amazing app, how to get started, techniques to improve your experiences, and workflows that will help you kick off any project the right way. You will discuss how to communicate a concept beginning with a prototype, gathering feedback, and optimizing your development process. You will leave this session with a tool to turn your concepts into reality! You’ll get several resources for taking your experiences to the next level and helping your organization jump forward.

In this session you will learn:

  • How to start using Adobe XD to imagine your next project and build a prototype
  • The advantages of wireframing
  • How to quickly create, experiment, and play with concepts
  • Best practices for designing new experiences
  • How to present to stakeholders
