Human-Centred Design 201: Prototyping


  • Skills Development
About this resource

With this course you will learn the methods that IDEO.org designers use to quickly bring ideas to life with prototypes, test those ideas in the field, and collect feedback and arrive at solutions that meet the needs of the people you’re designing for. We recommend that you take Introduction to Human-Centred Design before enrolling in this course.

Learn How To:

  • Turn your idea into a tangible product or service in a low-cost, risk-averse way
  • Gain valuable feedback from the people you’re designing for and incorporate it into new iterations
  • Refine a concept using the cycle of prototyping, feedback, and iteration
  • Experiment to prototype products, services, interactions, and environments
  • Take your learning from our Introduction to Human-Centred Design course to the next level

This course is free and 5-weeks long. The next edition starts on March 16, 2021.
