Hand-in date: Tuesday 01 March (Part 1)
Select a computer system, either existing or original, and develop a prototype interface for the system. We will brainstorm / evaluate a number of typical applications and discuss your own ideas in tutorial during weeks 2, 4 and 5 .
This assignment will comprise of 2 components involving system proposal, requirements analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of a limited functionality horizontal prototype interface. The data for the analysis and evaluation phases should be collected by appropriate primary and secondary discovery methods.
Note: you are not expected to implement the system itself, just an interface which where appropriate simulates full functionality.
Component 2 (Part 2) of the assignment should be spiral bound, word processed and not exceed 2500 words each, excluding appendices. Component 1 (Part 1) should be stapled to a cover sheet and handed to the tutor during your tutorial session.
Component 1 ( 15%) max 500 words due Tuesday 01 March 2011
Include all of the following :
Student SID number
Brief description of proposed interface (5)
Initial assumptions. The following questions may help you in exploring the problem space : Are there problems with an existing product or activity ? If so what are they ? Why do you think there are problems ? Why do you think your proposed ideas might be useful ? How do you envision people integrating your proposed interface with how they currently do things in their everyday or working lives ? How will your proposed interface support people in their activities ? In what way does it address an identified problem or extend current ways of doing things ? Will it really help ? ( 5 )
Justify which you consider to be the most important Usability and User experience goals for your interface ( 5 )
