About this course

Explore the principles of product design and innovation, and how to use Adobe XD to quickly create prototypes for new product ideas. Then learn how to apply your new prototyping skills to integrate digital product design and prototyping projects into your business and entrepreneurship curriculum.

Prototyping encourages students to innovate and develop product ideas through an intuitive and impactful digital format. Integrate product prototyping across the curriculum - for example, students could prototype a new mobile app idea for a pitch deck - and help students to expand their digital literacy while learning key content objectives.
