General Information

This year there will be four seminars. The first will be a review of your external analysis and task analysis. The second will be an expert review of your preliminary designs. The third is a cooperative evaluation of low-fidelity prototypes. Finally, the fourth will be in a computer lab and is a cooperative evaluation of the high-fidelity prototype.

Below you will find a description and some instructions for each seminar. Remember attendance is mandatory for all seminars. There will be makeup assignments if required, but one usually learns more by doing the work in the seminar.


Seminar 1: Analysis Review

The purpose of this seminar is to give you feedback on your external and task analyses. Each group will make a short presentation of their analyses to all members in the seminar session. There will be a small amount of time for questions after the presentation. Remember at this stage you are investigating the characterists of the users and what they will do with your product. No designs should be presented (or produced). The presentation is limited to 15 minutes including questions.

Seminar 2: Design Review

The purpose of this seminar is to give you feedback on your preliminary designs. When you choose your group and project, you will automatically sign up for a review time. Your group will meet with me at the appointed time in A3009b. We will go over your designs. Each group will have 15 minutes. So, plan your presentation well and be sure to come with a list of questions to which you need answers.
