Axure RP is a leading prototyping tool for designers of websites and other software user interfaces. Our Axure trainers are working user experience consultants who use Axure to prototype, test, and document innovative designs. Our workshops introduce Axure’s many features from the perspective of real-world practitioners who can help you use the program effectively and efficiently.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Basic Prototyping

Full-day workshop

Learn Axure concepts and become familiar with its user interface as you learn how to prototype and document a basic website. Discover ways of collaborating with teammates and clients. In this hands-on course, you will complete a series of exercises that will get you productive and introduce you to the range of Axure’s capabilities.

Prerequisite

None. Great for users with little to no experience in Axure.

  • Prototypes
  • Widgets and layouts
  • Formatting and styles
  • Reusable masters
  • Form design
  • Interactive links
  • Collaboration
  • Annotating your design
  • The specification document
  • Site maps and flow diagrams
  • Custom widget libraries
  • Team collaboration

Advanced Prototyping

Full-day workshop

Countless tools let you draw wireframes and link them together. Axure enables you to prototype rich interactions that are sensitive to user inputs. Our advanced course dives into these exciting capabilities to help you communicate and test sophisticated interactions that feel like the real thing. You will use these features for a series of prototyping exercises that will introduce you a series of common interactions and show you how to design your own.

Prerequisite

Basic prototyping workshop or equivalent. Students should know how lay out a page in Axure, preview their work in a browser, and publish an HTML prototype.

  • Capabilities
  • Types of interactions
  • Interaction triggers
  • Conditions and logic
  • Math and string variables
  • Adaptive layouts
  • Example Interactions
  • Hover styles
  • Dynamic forms
  • Tabbed panels
  • Flyouts and overlays
  • Sortable data tables using the repeater

Mobile Prototyping

Half-day workshop

Learn how to prototype a mobile website or a native mobile application using Axure and how to view your prototypes on touchscreen devices for testing. Our mobile workshop looks at common touchscreen design patterns, Axure capabilities specifically intended for mobile prototyping, and best practices for those who have decided to bring Axure to the small screen.

Prerequisite

Advanced prototyping workshop or equivalent. Students should know how to build interactions with dynamic panels.

  • Core Design Issues
  • Understanding the viewport
  • Adaptive layouts
  • Mobile navigation patterns
  • Supported gestures
  • Mobile form considerations
  • Example Interactions
  • Animated transitions
  • Tap feedback
  • Modal alerts
  • Swipe events

Drag and Drop

Half-day workshop

Web applications such as Google Maps and the growth in touchscreen devices has accelerated the demand for effective drag and drop interfaces. From simple slider controls to complex layout tools, drag and drop can make interacting with virtual objects feel more direct and intuitive. However, designing with drag and drop is harder than it looks. In this workshop you will learn about the elements of drag-and-drop interactions and how to combine these building blocks to prototype common UI patterns.

Prerequisite

Advanced prototyping workshop or equivalent. Students should know how to build interactions with dynamic panels.

  • Drag and Drop Basics
  • Drag events
  • Drag conditions
  • Built-in drag variables
  • Example Interactions
  • Mapping application
  • Slider control
  • Draggable dashboard widgets
