Because rapid prototyping results in the quick development of curriculum, materials, and processes, it is a form of design that could be particularly useful to professors in higher education. Yet, literature documenting the use of rapid prototyping in higher education is scarce. This paper offers a case example of rapid prototyping being used as a design process. After presenting the case, the author points to necessary considerations for other faculty members who are considering using rapid prototyping. These considerations include the need to gain perspective on the roles of instructional strategies and computers within teaching and learning processes, understand the distinction between traditional research rigor and design rigor, and the importance of approaching design systematically.
