Prototyping allows you to spend ten minutes -- instead of ten hours -- finding an amazing design for your product. This course will guide you through the iterative process of prototyping an app and conducting user research. You will start by making a low fidelity paper prototype, conducting research with users, and using that research to inform your next iteration. Together with InVision we’ll guide you through creating interactive prototypes. This means you don’t have to code an app before putting it in front of users! Along the way, you’ll learn how and where prototyping fits into your app design process and how you can use prototyping to become a better entrepreneur.
Lesson 1: Low-Fidelity Prototypes & User ResearchIn this lesson, you’ll learn the fundamentals of prototyping, as well as the process of making paper prototypes and presenting them to users.
Lesson 2: Medium-Fidelity Prototypes with inVisionIn this lesson, you’ll learn how to incorporate feedback, make interactive prototypes using InVision, and how to conduct further user research remotely.
Lesson 3: Lifelong PrototypingIn this lesson, you’ll learn how to refine your prototypes further, how to involve prototyping and user research in new app features, and how to present your prototypes and research.
Google is a company founded on 4 September 1998 in the Google garage in Silicon Valley, California, by Larry Page and Sergueï Brin, creators of the Google search engine.
The company made its name primarily through the monopolistic position of its search engine, which faced competition first from AltaVista and then from Yahoo! and Bing. It has since made a number of acquisitions and developments, and today owns a number of noteworthy software products and websites, including YouTube, the Android operating system for mobile phones, and other services such as Google Earth, Google Maps and Google Play.
Udacity is a for-profit educational organization founded by Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, and Mike Sokolsky offering massive open online courses (MOOCs).

While it originally focused on offering university-style courses, it now focuses more on vocational courses for professionals.
