It is important that a multimedia product functions properly, conveys the right message and is suitable for the target audience.

What is prototyping and testing?

Prototyping

A flow diagram showing the process of prototyping

A prototype is an initial version of a graphic. The prototype is tested to make sure it is fit for the audience and purpose. If there are any errors or problems, the prototype is improved and tested again. This goes on until the product is considered to be fully functional and suitable.

This process is known as prototyping and testing and is illustrated in the flow diagram above.

  1. A prototype is created
  2. It is tested and improved until it is fully functional and suitable for audience and purpose
  3. The final product is then released
