Overview

Designing a successful and innovative solution requires creative ideas and their iteration. As critical phases of the design thinking process, ideation and iteration are often what distinguish design thinking from traditional or linear problem-solving approaches. 

This course is part of a MicroMasters® Program

The Design Thinking - Ideation, Iteration and Communication Certificate, part of the Design Thinking MicroMasters Program and offered by EdX in partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology - RITx, will explain and provide context and instruction on essential ideation techniques such as:

  • Brainstorming
  • Mind mapping
  • Role playing
  • Storyboarding
  • Concept sketching
  • Model making
