Hey there Olivia!

You have a few options for creating interactive prototypes for websites: (although the absolute fastest would be using good ol' pen and paper )

As far as user testing goes there are many methods and websites for to help with this but with everything going on these days I feel like Zoom has become very common and easy to use for everyone that you could easily test prototypes with users over Zoom.
