Validating Ideas Through Prototyping
Chris Risdon - Validating Ideas Through Prototyping from UIDesign Group on Vimeo.
In this session we will tackle prototyping specifically to test and validate design ideas and concepts with users. These prototypes aren't for stakeholders nor developers, but end users. These prototypes aren't for usability testing, they are for testing conceptual frameworks and applications patterns. After you've done your research, synthesized and made meaning of all your data, sketched your ideas, you'll want to test these concepts with real users.
We'll learn what considerations need to be made when prototyping for testing concepts with users, and take a practical look at one of the tools used for this testing, Apple's Keynote. I'm tool agnostic, and recognize that different methods and applications are appropriate for different prototyping scenarios, but Keynote is cheap, flexible, allows for a wide range of fidelity, and has a low learning curve, making it perfect for our 90 minutes together."
