Final assignments

Hi all. I was a little unclear about the upcoming deadlines for assignments, so here is a clarification.

For this Thursday (5/1):

  • Show your storyboard (drawn or video) to 2 potential stakeholders (or their representatives) and get feedback
  • Write down their comments and questions and post them on your blog
  • Post a draft version of your video storyboard (you may need to upload to Box, Dropbox, or Youtube)
  • Please post this by 5pm Friday so I can give some feedback over the weekend — I won’t have time to look before Friday, so it’s OK if you don’t get it uploaded until then.

For next week (5/8):

  • Post a revised, tweaked version of your video. If possible, it would be great if you could upload this to YouTube so we can make a playlist for the final class.
  • Write a paragraph or two (sorry Abbie) about the process of video storyboarding — what went well, what didn’t.
  • Write another paragraph or two about what next steps you would take for this project if you had more time — what features you might develop, or what testing you might want to do.
  • Post these on your blog — this deliverable (along with the video) will constitute the final written report.
  • I’m going to order pizza etc. for the class meeting on 5/8. Please let me know by Monday (5/5) if you have any dietary restrictions.

Recommended readings for Thursday 5/1

Hi everyone. This coming Thursday I will be traveling at the CHI 2014 conference. Dr. Wayne Lutters will be talking in class about designing for trust in groups.

He sent along the following recommended readings. We’ll consider these optional, and I’ll give you optional reading credit for posting responses for them.

Photos from class

Hi all – here are the photos from our class activity on storyboarding. I’ll give some extra credit to anyone who wants to turn this into a video storyboard to demonstrate an application of Google Glass in the classroom (you may add extra images or edit the existing images). This would also be good practice for the class project.
