    Description:

    Prototyping is the stage of the human-centered design process where ideas come to life. Building prototypes is a low-cost and risk-averse way to get your ideas into the hands of the people you’re trying to change.

    This is an intensive, hands-on learning experience that will equip you to prototype products, services, interactions, and environments. You’ll learn methods that IDEO.org designers use to quickly build prototypes, learn best practices for testing those ideas in the field, and collecting real user feedback to iterate efficiently.
