As Thomas Edison said, “To have a great idea, have a lot of them.” That’s great in theory, but how do you find out WHICH of your many ideas are winners? Explaining an idea is OK but relies upon the explainer’s descriptive prowess and the ability of the listener to understand; a picture may speak a thousand words but if that’s the case, a prototype can speak 10,000.
Prototyping is the quickest, cheapest and most effective way of making your ideas tangible, allowing your stakeholders to actually interact with a ‘thing’, rather than the idea of a thing. On this course we will introduce you to the theory and best practice and you’ll engage in several practical exercises that demonstrate the value of prototyping.
This is a 1 day crash-course into the theory and practical application of prototyping. By the end you’ll be able to identify the appropriate interactive scope, testing approach and build method for producing a prototype that can be tested, validated and quickly iterated upon at a fraction of the time and cost of getting your ideas built by a 3rd party.
Topics covered in the course include:
It’s fun, it’s interactive, you will meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with, you will produce something worthwhile and go back to your desk armed with weapons to impress your colleagues and friends.
After completing the course, you will be able to:
Duration: 1 day

Aaron has a great deal of experience in providing user experience insight and interaction design for the travel industry after spending three years working closely with Virgin Holidays (and the extended Virgin family) and then for easyJet from 2010.
Aaron is highly experienced in a variety of user-centred design practices including stakeholder workshop moderation, requirements gathering, user testing, expert evaluation, information architecture, interaction design, and rapid prototyping.
This course was excellent, and although personally demanding, Aaron was great at explaining corrective action without intruding into the self-learning process.
Really good class size, so everyone got individual help and feedback with tasks. Good pace, it was challenging enough that it kept me interested but not so hard that I got frustrated! Aaron was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging.
