In this exercise, you will create a prototype for time-travel interface. This design will require both digital and physical components. This exercise illustrates the necessity of evaluative testing to gauge a design’s usability, usefulness, and enjoyability. This exercise will move very quickly and over the next three class sessions, you will have a prototype of a new time travel system. You will work in teams of 3 or 4 for this exercise.
Your user for this project is broadly defined as "person who wants to time travel". The end goal is to travel in time (and pay for it). The experience goal will need to be defined to inform your solution. In the name of speed, don't consider their life goal.
Things you should consider for your time travel system:
You need to hand in a few things for this project: 1) Process photos or videos to show progression of prototypes. 2) At least 3 videos of your evaluative tests (preferably with different prototypes). 3) A video walkthrough of someone using your prototype. All files should be submitted through Canvas.
Each team of 3 or 4 will receive a common grade for this assignment. The design will be evaluated on evidence and quality of testing and the quality of your final communication artifacts (video, one-sheet).
At the end of this project, you will be able to:
|Category||% of total|
|Project 1: Back in Time||10%|
|Project 2: Sharing with Tech||50%|
|Project 3: Civic Web Design||40%|
*Categories and percentage breakdown subject to change.
Every assignment in this course will be due at the beginning of the class of its defined due date. Work that is not handed in via the method requested by the instructor (OnCourse, email, etc) by the predetermined time will be considered late. The consequences of late submission fall on sliding scale, increasing in severity over time. If late work is handed in within the following parameters, the grade will be reduced in the following ways:
|Due date/time – same day, end of class||-10%|
|Same day, end of class – same day, end of day (11:59pm)||-15%|
|Next day (midnight – 11:59pm)||-20%|
|Any subsequent day||-50%|
