Course Description:

Axure RP allows you to rapidly prototype desktop and mobile interfaces and produce testable, sharable, HTML, viewable in a browser without touching a line of code.

Our Advanced course is an intensely practical session suitable for those who have either completed our Intermediate course or are already capable of the following:

  • Can format widgets to produce colourful buttons, rollover states, embed links, styled containers and so on
  • Use guides and grids to create tidy prototypes
  • Can screen grab then chop up existing web pages and put them back together in a different order
  • Can create interactive HTML prototypes with interaction that feature conditional logic such as:
    • If dropdown = ‘shoes’, show some shoes
    • If dropdown = ‘hats’, show some hats
    • Clicking object X changes object Y
    • If Z does not contain @ show error message
  • Understands the fundamental principles of ‘dynamic panels’:
    • Making stuff appear and disappear on click or mouse over
    • Simulate HTML5 type wizardry such as carousels, lightboxes, in page changes etc
  • Can annotate prototypes
  • Can use masters to create reusable elements such as global navigation

Now, you’re ready to make your prototypes SPECTACULAR!

Is It For You?

Sometimes, you need to turn your ideas into something tangible and interactive. You need to demonstrate to managers, the board, developers or customers how something will work – and for this, you need a prototype.

Axure RP is an industry-leading digital prototyping tool, used by over 30,000 professionals for communicating design ideas beyond paper sketching, storyboards, scenarios etc.

If you have a stake in improving your digital content and have ideas for how this should be done – this course is for you!

Participants taking this course are typically Product Managers, User Experience Professionals / Managers, Interaction Designers, Graphic Designers, Information Architects and Developers

What You’ll Learn

Topics covered in the course include:

  • How to make prototypes that are essentially indistinguishable from real websites
  • Advanced dynamic panel use, to create HTML5-type wizardry such as:
    • Animations
    • Carousels
    • Accordions
    • Page scrolling
  • Advanced conditional logic:
    • If X = a AND Y = b THEN do this thing ELSE do something else
    • Local variables
    • Math and string functions
  • Variable passing between pages (one widget or page knows what happened on another widget or page)
  • Embed media such as video and maps
  • How to use frames to draw in content from live sites
  • Mobile prototype generation (how to design for small screens and view on a mobile device)
  • How to get the best from high-fidelity prototype testing

It’s fun, it’s interactive, you will meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with. You will produce something worthwhile and go back to your desk armed with weapons to impress your colleagues and friends.

Learning objectives

After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Become an Axure Ninja!
  • Make sophisticated prototypes that are essentially indistinguishable from real functionality
  • Build, distribute and user test sophisticated interaction design in Axure without the need for developers
