ISAD260 – User-centred Interface Design:Assignment 2 (2016)Interactive Prototype DevelopmentSpecification:Ubiquitous inter-connective technologies are enabling innovative and creativesolutions to many problems in work, home or social life. These include mobiledevices, digital media, Wireless connectivity, GPS, soft AI, software agents,intelligent materials and so on. It promises to be the future of the computingparadigm as even more functionality is combined to support users’requirements, real and imagined.Your task is to put yourself in the shoes of a designer in a leading edgeinnovation company. You will produce a conceptual design and workingprototype interface of a solution to an interaction-design problem that you willdefine. You are free to choose the problem and type of system you design aslong as it meets the criteria in this document. At the very least it should be atechnical solution to an identified problem.Relevant areas may include (butnot be limited to) wearable computing, gaming, augmented reality,educational aids, interactive kiosks, portable digital media.You may use any and all current and (realistically) projected technologies forthe design of your system. You should demonstrate an understanding of thecognitive and ergonomic characteristics of the target users and show howyour design takes account of them.This assignment is designed to draw on many of the key themes of themodule; psychological and technical, theoretical and practical, and this shouldbe reflected within your report.Deliverables:This is an individual assignment.An interactive prototype interface must be produced using client-side web-based technologies introduced during the module to include HTML, CSS andjavascript-related functionality. This will demonstrate the top-level interactionbetween the user and system via an interactive and intuitive graphicalinterface including input and output functionality.When you have completed this, produce a written document with narrativeexplanations and associated imagery, demonstrating your research anddesign justifications. This should include background theory, references andannotated design sketches. You are also required to produce a thoroughuser-testing plan which could be used to evaluate the usability aspects of yourdesign.Discuss the different user-centred evaluation paradigms, and how youwould obtain both quantitative and qualitative evaluation data specific to yourchosen application functionalities, and the relevance of this to appropriateuser-centred software design methodologies.
