Syllabus

 

  • Techniques that will be useful during various stages of the design process such as brainstorming, user observation, and prototyping; 


If you have taken Designing Interactive Systems I previously, you can think of this lab as an elaborated version of the project you did; you will continue past the medium-fidelity prototypes to build a fully-functional production-ready system at the end.
