Course Syllabus

Abstract

The objective of this multidisciplinary course is to form professional competencies related to designing digital interactive products as well as to practice communication with design teams. Long gone are the days when designers and UX professionals used to join the software development process on the last stages when most of the work is already done. Now designers and developers work side by side from the very beginning of any project. It is of great importance for them to work together as a whole, which means that effective communication between the two teams is crucial for a project's suc-cess.

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Quiz 1 (Q1)
    This is an individual assignment which implies taking the "Interaction Design: An Introduction" quiz online.
  • non-blocking Homework 2 (HW2)
    This assignment implies forming recruitment criteria which later will be given to another team. A draft of the criteria is prepared by every team and presented on the 4th seminar, otherwise the team loses a portion of the grade for practice activities. During the seminar the professor discusses the draft with the team and gives tips on how to improve it.
  • non-blocking Homework 3 (HW3)
    This assignment implies proposing design concepts of a complete app by a given set of functions, user and/or interactions models, and best practices found in the analogous apps. The design concepts are prepared by every team and presented on the 5th or 6th seminars, otherwise the team loses a portion of the grade for practice activities. During the seminars the professor discusses the proposed concepts with the team and gives tips on how to improve them.
  • non-blocking Homework 4 (HW4)
    This assignment implies developing a test plan to evaluate another team’s app while simultaneously working on an interactive prototype of your team’s app. A draft of the plan is prepared by every team and presented on the 10th or 11th seminars, otherwise the team loses a portion of the grade for practice activities. During the seminars the professor discusses the draft and the prototype with the team and gives tips on how to improve them.
  • non-blocking Quiz 5 (Q5)
    This is an individual assignment which implies taking the "Usability Inspection Methods & Intro to Usability Evaluation" quiz online.
  • non-blocking Homework 6 (HW6)
    This assignment implies conducting usability tests in accordance with the plan prepared during the previous assignment, analyzing usability data gathered throughout the tests, and writing a report that describes all interaction problems found during the study. A draft of the report is prepared by every team and presented on the 12th or 13th seminars, otherwise the team loses a portion of the grade for practice activities. During the seminars the professor discusses the draft with the team and gives tips on how to improve it.
  • non-blocking Homework 7 (HW7)
    This assignment implies writing a design specification that details the appearance and behavior of the app. A draft of the design spec is prepared by every team and presented on the 15th or 16th seminars, otherwise the team loses a portion of the grade for practice activities. During the seminars the professor discusses the draft with the team and gives tips on how to improve it.
  • non-blocking Peer-review 8 (PR8)
