702 Using Prototyping to Revolutionize Your Development Process
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 27
How many times have you had to redo a project after you thought you understood the challenge, the goals, or the requirements? As you start to build more complex interactions and applications, you need a process that will allow you to test a concept, measure its results, and iterate over and over until it meets the needs of your audience. These are not new concepts in software development, but L&D can learn how to adopt and utilize them.
This session will explore the software prototyping model as it pertains to L&D processes. You will learn about the best tools available for prototyping and the best techniques for sharing content, as well as gathering feedback. This session is ideal for L&D professionals at any level, including project managers and above. You will leave this session able to improve your process, improve your results, and reduce the amount of time you spend in development.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to use prototyping as soon as you get back to your office
- How to pick the best tool for your prototype
- How to effectively gather feedback from users before, during, and after each iteration
- Dozens of tips and resources to get you started
Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
