- Assignment 1 – Opportunity Identification and Digital Prototyping: Group project (3-5 students). The group will identify a new opportunity for interactive technology design, with an associated context of potential users. A design concept will be developed, and a prototype will be designed and built to reflect some part of the design concept. The work is submitted as a written and illustrated report (4000 words – 20%) and a presentation (10 minutes – 10%), requiring approximately 50 hours of work per student. Due in week 7 (30%). Addressing Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO) 1, 2, 3.
- Assignment 2 – Evaluation of digital prototype: Group project (3-5 students) building on Assignment 1. The group will plan and conduct a usability evaluation of their digital prototype, using chosen evaluation techniques. The work is submitted as written and illustrated report of evaluation findings and design recommendations (4000 words - 20%) and a presentation (10 minutes – 10%), requiring approximately 50 hours of work per student. Due in week 11 (30%). (ILO 3, 4, 5).
- Assignment 3 – An individually submitted digital innovation proposal (of 3000 words) which presents a business case for a new digital technology based on the evidence of the prototype developed during semester, and requiring 20 hours of work. Due in week 12 (40%).
Assignment 3 is a hurdle and must be passed to pass the subject. (ILO 6)
