    Here's what some of Amir's current students say about his teaching style:

    "Extremely clear and effective methodology shared by Amir. Highly recommend this course." - Ivan Lanuza

    "I was able to apply what I learned here to create a prototype that was presented as part of a business plan at university." - Adam Archer

    "Very effective course. The content and methodology are very straight forward and solid" - Josh David

    "The most useful & effective methods I've come across to help you take an idea in your head into something concrete. Will use this for all my future projects. Wish I'd known this sooner. Highly Recommended!" -Akshay Arabolu

    "Excellent course, exactly what I needed to build UI/UX momentum for my product. I cranked through it in less than 2 hours and I'm ready to take my product to the next level." -Andrew Beinbrink

    "This was a fantastic course & experience - one that I will continue to use and refine. It was more than worth the cost and time invested. Amir explains "the process" in a very simple, clear & concise manner, and had just the right amount of detail. I was so inspired that I scrapped my original MVP design and followed the step by step process. What a HUGE improvement! I now have a REAL product that I am proud of. Amir also makes himself very accessible and is very responsive. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this course." - Stacey Arbetter

    "Most hands-on tutorials in UX so far!" - Arti Villa

    Overview of the prototyping process

    How long does it usually take to go from idea to creating a prototype that you can test with users? A month? A week? Few days? How about 30 minutes? What if you can prototype your next idea quickly and cheaply without using any special wireframing or design tools? What if you can test it on the device without writing a single line of code?

    Incomplete title

    The title of this course should include "...with Purchase of my Keynotopia Template". Don't get me wrong, if you want to purchase the templates this is probably a great way to learn to use them. For anyone not intending to purchase the instructors templates there are a few interesting bits of information as well, but maybe not worth going through the whole course for. Hey, it's a free course though - but with an appropriate disclaimer or title it would certainly deserve a higher rating.

    Videos aren't working/Software being promoted

    The title says how to prototype in 30 minutes or less but it should really say how to use Keynoteopia in 30 minutes or less. Also, I stopped after Lecture 1 because the videos from Lecture 2 and beyond don't work. Thankfully this course is free.
