Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course consists of a larger practical project based on the theoretical bases that have been introduced in DH1623.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

- explain and present design properties of interactive artifacts for different stakeholders

- carry out a smaller design project in a group (including basic project management)

- carry out formative usability tests of own prototypes

- apply a creativity technique (e.g. brainstormning)

- create paper prototypes and digital interactive prototypes

- based on a given design task discover and identify what characterises the intended target group and situation of usage

- identify and formulate usability requirements after completed field studies

- reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of their own design based on literature and own evaluations

in order to

- be able to use design methods that support the development of useful systems.

- prepare the student for further studies in the area.
