InVision is a software tool that makes it easy to quickly create prototypes of web sites and mobile apps; and share them with others. This course teaches you how to use InVision to build your own prototypes. Stephanie will provide a hands-on look at InVision's tool sets and demonstrate how prototypes (unlike static wireframes or screen mock-ups) make it possible to demonstrate a web site or app.
You'll learn why prototyping helps you find and fix usability problems before anything is hard-coded; and understand how prototyping facilitates cooperation and concept alignment among team members, and perhaps most importantly, your clients.
