IxD Exercies & Projects

IxD Exercises & Projects

Over the many years I have been running projects related to interaction. See notably my work on Tangible Interaction and on Ubiquitous Computing.

Exercises

The series of exercises are meant to be short and direct means to introduce you to key topics of IxD. Each exercise is individual work, and should be submitted as a review (apart from #1) like technogadget or technorati. Each of these exercises are meant to be quick and straightforward, you should spent no more of 2 hours on each. The exercises are worht 5% of your module mark and they last for one week each.

Projects

Two projects will be set to test the students’ ability to work collaboratively and cooperatively. One project will be about designing an interface following requirements and specifications, and the other project will be on rapid prototyping in the context of tangible interaction design.
