Industrial design was the leverage of Steve Jobs’ strategy to turn Apple around in 1997. After launch of iMac, it rose from <$5 in 1997 to $12+ in 1998 to $35+ in 2000, a ~600+% jump in ~3 years. 
Design-driven companies have outperformed the S&P Index by 228% over 10 year – DMI (Design Management Institute)
Companies that foster creativity enjoy 1.5 times greater market share. 50% of design-led companies report more loyal customers. – Adobe

Course Reviews
Salvador, This brief course is about concept for UI UX design rather than a graphic course using software to sketch Apps
Every chapter is direct to the point, the way a designer must think in order to be able to create ideas for UX concepts
If you are thinking to buy courses about software to sketch ideas in UX, I recommend this one first

Familia Garcia, Absolutely fantastic, thank you so much, really amazing course!
Raquel Talavera, Good content and development for beginners. Thanks for the links!
Kristen Gunther, Great overview on UX!
Lufefe Zongo, it is good and absolutely easy to follow and understand, I, as a beginner in prototyping personally enjoy how it is structured.

Rapid prototyping is a low-tech trial to solve problem for your first few customers as fast as possible, using a rough or low fidelity item. The Pinocchio Technique – creating a ‘wooden’ mockup of your idea.  Invest in the optimal rapid prototyping option and tool to build a minimal viable product (MVP) for running low fidelity experiments in front of your customers.   

This course covers 9 rapid prototyping options, including –
· Sketches
· Paper Prototype
· Storyboard / Wireframes
· User Interface (UI) Mockups
· Partial Code Prototype
· Quick Code Prototype
· Video Demo
· Quality Code Prototype
This course also provides a high level overview of different tools available for rapid prototyping of UI+UX

Note
– This course covers WHAT options and tools are available for rapid prototyping of UI+UX. Currently, this course does NOT cover HOW to use these tools.

It’s becoming easier and easier to create Web sites and mobile apps. But harder and harder to measure the effectiveness of these applications. This course covers how to measure the effectiveness of UX using Google’s HEART framework and Goals-Signals-Metrics (GSM) process.

Better products or a superior customer service are no longer enough to stand out.  Technology has lowered barriers for entry and, with that, provoked a new era of competition.   According to John Maeda, design partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the solution is to become a design-led company. Design-led companies invest heavily in powerful customer experiences – a key element to tackle if you want to get your customers’ attention and motivate them to keep coming back.
