Overview

In this assignment you will incorporate the feedback from your pilot usability study as well as the feedback you received from the teaching staff to produce the next iteration of your interface design. You will then prepare:

  • a short presentation (2 minutes, 30 seconds)
  • a poster that describes your project
  • a live demonstration of your project

Using Pilot Test Results

You should use the results and conclusions of your Pilot Usability Test along with any feedback we (or your classmates) gave you on your earlier prototypes. You should fix as many of the problems found as you can, prioritized by UI severity. This is also your last chance to implement as much missing functionality as you can. Some wizard-of-oz functionality is still permissible, but you should have run it by us. At this point a user should be able to interact with the system naturally and any wizard-of-oz should be fairly transparent. The user should be able to use the UI to do more than just step through three rote tasks.

Please talk with us if you have questions or thoughts about the overall scope of your project. You don't have to implement everything, but there should be enough working parts of your project that we can get an overall sense for how well the interface works.


Presentations (20 pts)

On May 5th at 6pm you will present your final interface designs in person to the teaching staff and external judges in the Banatao Auditorium in Dai Hall. Since we have teams from 3 classes, your slot will be short: 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Only one member from your group should present, but all members should be on stage. Because of time constraints, you cannot use your own laptop.

  • Use Google Docs Presentations to prepare your slides.
  • You can add video to your presentation by uploading it to YouTube - Google Docs can integrate YouTube clips.
  • Guideline: 5 slides maximum.
  • Cover motivation (who wants to use your interface and why?), and give a demonstration of the final interface. There won't be time for the complete story. Focus on the needs of your users and the benefits your solution provides. Most of the audience will not have seen your project before - make the presentation understandable and compelling for them.
  • You must submit a link to your slides by Monday, May 3, 6pm so we can test your presentation.
  • If you use video, also submit a backup of your video files.

Poster and Demonstration Session (30 pts)

On May 5th at 7:30pm, right after presentations, you will demonstrate your interface to the teaching staff and external judges in a poster+demo session. You will design the poster; we will print it for you. Please make sure that your interface is in working order and ready to go for the demo. If your interface requires showing interactions between multiple users, bring multiple devices. (You can bring one device and a laptop with a simulator if you don't have access to multiple devices). If it requires some data in a database to be useful, make sure you enter enough data.

  • Design your poster either in PowerPoint with the BiD lab template, or send us a 30"x40" PDF file.
  • You must submit your poster file by Monday, May 3, 6pm so we can print your poster.
  • Practice a demo "pitch" with your friends - you should find a balance between demonstrating some functionality of your interface and letting visitors and judges try the application first-hand.
