Today’s lesson and next assignments

I was nice to meet you today and see that you are all working on the projects. In the first part of the lesson we were looking through the personas that you have created. You can find my feedback and summary from Interaction Design Methods 2016.pdf file in Dropbox and Google Drive.

All together we have six group projects this year:

In the second part of the lesson I introduced shortly the scenario-based design method (slides) groups started preparing their scenarios. All groups should prepare 3…5 scenarios that describe typical use cases of their application. Please post the scenarios together with questions in group blog by this Sunday 21.02 (assignment GA 2.1). Please post each scenario as a separate blog post, this way it is better to comment on specific scenarios.

I posted on book chapter about scenario-based design to the Dropbox and Google Drive folders (Rosson_&_Carroll_2002.pdf):

Rosson, M. B., & Carroll, J. M. (2002). Scenario-Based Design. In J. A. Jacko & A. Sears (Eds.), The Human-Computer Interaction Handbook: Fundamentals, Evolving Technologies and Emerging Applications (pp. 1032–1050). Mahwah, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

During next week you should arrange a participatory design session based on your scenarios and post a summary (assignment GA 2.2). All groups should also prepare a concept map with most important concepts of the system / user interface (assignment GA 2.3) by 28.02.

As an individual assignment, I expect all of you to choose one of the other groups and comment their scenarios (assignment IA1). I will also comment all your scenarios next week.

Have a productive time and feel free to contact me in case of questions!
