Capstone in User-Centered Design

This seminar-style course is intended to bring together all of the prior knowledge and skills that the student has obtained. Students will work independently or in small teams to produce a prototype of a product or system. The process will be an iterative, semester-long project in which students (or small teams of students) will identify the purpose of the design; construct a set of wireframe documentation with justification for the design, capturing the up-front intentions behind the user experience; and mockup and/or prototype the UX with subsequent user testing that leads to a final prototype. With the exception of the final prototype, each part of the process will include peer reviews. A final presentation of the product will be the culminating activity, and will receive feedback from a program-curated group of industry experts.
