In my series of Adobe EdEx posts, I also learned the beginnings of Adobe Xd. Adobe Xd is still in its infancy. It is primarily software for developing UI and UX design. You can create low fidelity wire frames for websites and other design formats and then prototype the links and functions.
From there you can create a recording of the wireframe functioning for your intended audience and have them review the prototype. In our class we created simple sites or apps prototypes that function as a login page for whatever you envision.
I enjoyed the class for introducing me to the ideas of UX design, but I was sad that it was only two weeks long and we didn’t delve into anything major. I’ll have to explore the subject on my own, which is tough since I can be hard to motivate on self learning, but knowing the basics will at least be one less hurdle to overcome. I already bookmarked a few courses on Lynda.com.
You can see my overall project below. To read more on the process, you can read my learning journal from the class.
