Creating prototypes puts a proposed solution into action. In the Design Thinking - Prototyping and User Testing Certificate, which is offered by EdX in partnerships with Rochester Institute of Technology - RITx, you will learn the value of prototypes and user testing as critical components of the design thinking process.
You will examine case studies to understand the iterative process of prototyping and discover how new products and ideas can emerge as a result.
This course is part of a MicroMasters® Program
As part of the Design Thinking MicroMasters Program, you will study how to analyze and implement the results of user testing to ensure your solution can fully benefit from this inclusive and innovative process. Best practices for evaluating solutions will also be covered, including surveys, user evaluations, focus groups and interviews.
