Final Report

From CS 160 User Interfaces Sp10

Jump to: navigation, search

Due: May 7rd 11:59pm 50 Points



In this assignment you will describe your semester-long video in a final project report video and submit your project source code.

Video (25 pts)

Your video must be narrated and can be up to 5 minutes long. It should tell a complete story of your project:

  • Motivation: who is you target user group and what are their needs? Where do existing applications fall short?
  • Your solution: a video demonstration of your interface. Focus on conveying the user experience.
  • Implementation: if you feel that your group solved interesting technical challenges along the way, describe your architecture briefly (no more than 30 seconds).
  • Evaluation: explain what you learned from user testing. What works, what remains to be improved? What would you tackle next if you continued this project?

You can expand on the presentation you gave on Wednesday (i.e., reuse some of the material). You can use still images and video. Think about screen-recording a presentation. We encourage you to publish your final video on YouTube or other video sharing sites.

Project Files (25 pts)

Submit a zip file containing

  • Your iPhone application source
  • If you are running a server that coordinates data exchange between applications, also submit the source code for your server application. Make sure your server is up and running until at least May 10 so we can test your application.
  • a README.txt text file that explains how to build and run your project.

Return Loaned Equipment (Class grade)

If you borrowed any equipment (iPod Touch devices,web cams, flex arms), you must return the equipment to us by Friday evening, otherwise your group will not receive a grade for the class.


Uploading Images

To upload images to the wiki, first create a link for the image of the form [[Image:image_name.jpg]] (replacing image_name.jpg with a unique image name for use by the server). This will create a link you can follow that will then allow you to upload the image. Alternatively, you can use the "Upload file" link in the toolbox to upload the image first, and then subsequently create a link to it on your wiki page.

Add Link to Your Group's Page

Edit your group's page to add a link to a new wiki page for this assignment. The wiki syntax should look like this:

[[FinalReport-Group:ExampleGroup-FirstNameLastName|Final Report (FirstName LastName)]]

Again replace ExampleGroup with your group's name and FirstNameLastName with your name. Look at Group:ExampleGroup for an example. Then click on the link and enter the information about your assignment. Be sure to clearly address everything mentioned in the writing guidelines above. Writeups for all group members should be posted here.

Add Link to Your Finished Assignment

One you are finished editing the page, add a link to it here with your group name as the title link. The wiki syntax will look like this: *[[FinalReport-Group:ExampleGroup|Group:ExampleGroup]]. Hit the edit button for this section to see how I created the link for the ExampleGroup.

Your submission should contain a link to the final report video and a link to a zip file of your source code.
