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.

This beginner’s course is an intensely practical session suitable for those who have never (or only just) started to use Axure RP and will teach you all about AXURE’s interface and features so you can get started with prototyping at a fraction of the time and cost of getting something built by a 3rd party and optimising later.

It’s fun, it’s interactive and you’ll meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with. By the end of the course, you will have produced something worthwhile and will be able to go back to your desk armed with weapons to impress your colleagues and friends.

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 to do that, 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 – and more.

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

What You’ll Learn

Topics covered in the course include:

  • Get to know the interface (orientation)
  • Create basic, bare-bones wireframes using native AXURE widgets
  • Master formatting to produce colourful buttons, rollover states, embed links, style containers etc.
  • Understand sitemaps (information architecture)
  • Use Guides and grids to create tidy prototypes
  • Screengrab then chop up existing web pages and put them back together in a different order
  • Tweak functionality within existing web pages
  • Create basic HTML interactive prototypes i.e. clickable user journeys
  • Prove a crazy idea will work
  • Prove a crazy idea won’t work
  • How to annotate your prototypes so that developers know exactly what you’re trying to achieve
  • Share a link to your prototype with clients, colleagues or users and get feedback right there and then
  • Do away with the woefully inadequate Visio and PowerPoint and use a tool designed from the ground up, for rapid, interactive prototyping
  • How to get the best from low-fidelity prototype testing

Learning objectives

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Use and describe all the basic features of Axure
  • Turn design ideas into basic HTML prototypes for desktop sites
  • Share prototypes and know how to gather feedback from stakeholders
  • Properly annotate pr for good communication
  • Build, distribute and user test simple prototypes in AXURE without the need for developers

This course was excellent, and although personally demanding, Aaron was great at explaining corrective action without intruding into the self-learning process.

Really good class size, so everyone got individual help and feedback with tasks. Good pace, it was challenging enough that it kept me interested but not so hard that I got frustrated! Aaron was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging.

It really covered the basics of Axure and some best practice UX rules. The adaptive (simulates responsive) tutorial will be really useful for me.
