Read chapter 9-19 and reflect on the following questions:
Chapter 9- in terms of IxD, what's novel in the case? What can be related to "traditional" IxD and what aspects are related to ubiquitous aspects?
Chapter 10-what's the most important IxD aspect to consider when designing appliances?
Chapter 11-12: what aspect of ubiquitous UX is most different compared to "traditional" UX? How should designers address that aspect?
Chapter 13- read and reflect...
Chapter 14-19: compared to the techniques for IxD suggested by Saffer, how do the techniques suggested by Kuniavsky differ? What differing aspects of importance seem to be central in Kuniavsky's view?
The seminar will focus on the "Smart Things" book by Kuniavsky. Read the chapters outlined below and reflect on the questions associated with the chapters:
Chapter 1-4: Compare how Kuniavsky and Saffer describe and define the fundamentals of interaction design and reflect on the differences and similarities you can identify.
Chapter 5: Read the case analysis and reflect on the conclusions made. Do you agree with the author? If not, why?
Chapter 6-8: read and write down you own reflections/questions, be prepared to discuss them at the seminar.
The seminar will focus on the writing process related to the individual assignment. You should therefore prepare the following:
- Reflect on the task presented in the assignment. What are the major problems and difficulties you need to address in order to solve the task? What possible strategies for solving the task do you recognize?
- Reflect on the writing process required to perform the task in the assignment. What bottlenecks do you identify? What kind of material do you think that you will require? What strategies can you use in order to identify and get access to academic publications in the area for the task?
Individual assignment here
Group assignment- follow the brief from MAN and hand in the following documentation:
1) The visual presentation that you give to MAN in the end of the project
2) A short report that presents the major learnings and outcomes you experienced in the project.
Smart things : ubiquitous computing user experience design
Amsterdam : Morgan Kaufmann Publisher
