Adobe XD iconWhat is Adobe XD?

Adobe XD is a desktop program made for designing user interfaces and wireframes for a variety of applications. This collaborative tool allows BU educators and students to work together or alone on UI/UX projects, building designs for apps, websites, and much more. With its prototyping features, Adobe XD allows users to create low to high-fidelity working prototypes to share with the BU community and beyond.

Get Started with Adobe XD

If app and web design are of interest to you, the resources from Adobe Tutorials will help you learn about UI/UX design and how to build digital interfaces. Without any coding needed, Adobe XD allows you to create clickable presentations, application mockups, dynamic web designs, and more for all of your classroom needs.
